Dreamland Baby x Eagles Autism Foundation

In honor of Autism Awareness month, a portion of all Dream Weighted Blanket sales today will be donated to the Eagles Autism Foundation.

What are the benefits of weighted blankets for kids with autism?

Some people with autism have sensory needs and may be seeking or avoiding input with touch, light, and sound. A weighted blanket may help individuals who have sensory needs depending on what their preference is.

Weighted blankets also help in getting a good night’s sleep by offering light to deep pressure which can create a feeling of comfort, like a hug. That gentle, weighted feeling can reduce stress and increase feelings of calm.

What is the Eagles Autism Foundation?  

The Eagles Autism Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for innovative autism research and care programs. By providing the necessary resources to doctors and scientists at leading institutions, we will be able to assist those currently affected by autism as well as future generations. 

Each year the Eagles Autism Foundation holds the Eagles Autism Challenge, a community fundraising event championed by Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie. One hundred percent of participant-raised funds from the team’s signature charity event are invested into the autism research and care community, with more than $25 million raised in its six years.

Today, millions of people around the world are connected to autism. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 36 people under 21 living in the United States are on the autism spectrum, making it the fastest-growing developmental disorder.
