APRIL: Autism Awareness Month & Partnering with the Michael L. Johnson, Jr. Foundation
April 08, 2022
We are so honored to be in our third year of partnering with Executive Representative, Shameka Johnson in support of Autism Awareness and the Michael L. Johnson, Jr. Foundation. Shameka and her husband, Michael, created the Foundation in honor of their son, Michael L. Johnson Jr. who passed away unexpectedly in 2014.
This year we're excited to offer a Limited Edition Beach Towel in Royal Blue. It includes a FREE Pineapple Mega personalization in your choice of two styles - monogram it, or add a name! Our Pineapple Mega is not only exclusive to Initials Inc., but was inspired by the Michael L. Johnson, Jr. Foundation logo and designed as a vibrant celebration of the diversities and strengths of individuals with Autism.
Our mission is to be a nonprofit service to families with little super heros that have strength beyond what we understand. To assist with awareness of autism, and pediatric seizures.
Our purpose is to help families through various sources such as donations, scholarships, and charitable donations. The primary inspiration for the Michael L. Johnson, Jr. Foundation is to leave a legacy for Michael Jr. with the intention to continue to touch people’s hearts the way he did everyday. We will always strive for his memory to live on.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) includes Asperger’s Disorder and Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified [PDD-NOS]), and is a complex, lifelong developmental condition that typically appears during early childhood. It can impact a person’s social skills, communication, relationships, and self-regulation. While there is currently no known single cause of Autism, early diagnosis helps a person receive resources that can support the choices and opportunities needed to live fully.
