Autistic Teen Starts Campaign to Launch T-Shirt Business
Written by Project Inspired | February 14, 2013
15-year-old Hannah Greenberg has a dream, and she’s using the internet to help make it come true. Greenberg, who describes herself as a “teenage girl with autism who loves fashion,” is working to create a new T-shirt line through Spectrum Designs. The company is close to the teen’s heart, as it is composed entirely of employees with autism. This is a huge deal, as 90% of individuals with autism are currently unemployed. She hopes the shirts themselves will also promote and inspire others with the same disorder.
Using gofundme.com, Hannah has set her goal of $5,000 to cover start-up costs for the T-shirt line.
“I created the A-Z series; it’s characterized by my zany curly hair coupled with my love of the alphabet and my favorite color green,” she told HuffPost. “I always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer and a portion of the sales from each T-shirt will help employ adults with autism.” Click here to learn more about her business.
