Witness a remarkable campaign this April, where the focus is on young autistic adults turning their baking skills into a force for good. By crafting 520 pies for autism care centers in Klang Valley, these bakers are not just filling bellies but are also filling hearts, showcasing their capabilities and challenging societal perceptions.

Celebrating Unique Talents

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is often viewed through the lens of the challenges it presents. However, this campaign shifts the focus, celebrating the unique talents and abilities that ASD can also bring. These young bakers are proof that with the right support and training, individuals on the spectrum can excel and contribute meaningfully to their communities. Their work in the kitchen is more than just baking; it's an art form that brings them joy and pride.


The pies baked by these young adults are not just treats; they're symbols of love and support, shared with autism care centers where they can bring smiles to many faces. By supporting this initiative, you're not just buying a pie—you are investing in the potential of these remarkable young adults to lead fulfilling, independent lives.

Joyful Contributions

Our goal of raising RM3,000 by the end of April is ambitious but achievable, with every contribution helping us edge closer to making a significant impact. In just ten days, we have raised approximately 52% of our fundraising goal, a testament to the community's belief in the value of this initiative. Your donations help ensure the sustainability of this campaign, allowing these young bakers to continue their work and perhaps even expand it in the future.

Inspiration and Courage for Families

For families of individuals with ASD, this campaign offers a beacon of hope and inspiration. It demonstrates that with the right environment and encouragement, their loved ones can achieve great things. We hope to inspire more families to explore and nurture the unique talents within their loved ones on the spectrum, promoting a shift in perception towards abilities rather than limitations.

Join Us in This Meaningful Journey

As the campaign continues until April 30th, 2024, we invite you to join us in this meaningful journey. Whether you are contributing financially, sharing our story, or simply spreading the word, every little bit helps us move closer to our goal. Together, we can create a ripple effect of joy and acceptance, proving that "Different is not less" but is a reservoir of untapped potential waiting to be celebrated.
