Tommy on Ellen! Let’s Do It!

Jenny McCarthy has already spoken about autism on the Ellen show.  It is time to get a new spokesperson talking about how autism has affected their life.  Fashion Designer Tommy Hilfiger has a son with autism, and has partnered with Autism Speaks to share his story.

To get Tommy on the Ellen show speaking about how having a son with autism has affected his life would give the public a whole new perspective on the cause.  Tommy would reach out to publics that Jenny McCarthy and Toni Braxon have not, and he will be a fresh face to the public.

Another person in the public’s eye who suffers from autism is Heather Kuzmich.  A contestant on America’s Next Top Model, Heather made it through many rounds, not letting her Asperger’s syndrome get in the way of her reaching for her dreams.

It would be a great idea to have Tommy Hilfiger on the Ellen Show and have Heather make an appearance, modeling Tommy’s new ready to wear collection.  The segment will then wrap up urging the public to donate to Autism Speaks so that we can get one step closer to finding a cure for autism.

  1. This is such a great plan. I love that you are targeting multiple icons to spread the message.

    Great ideas Emily! I LOVE the idea of having Heather model the Tommy clothing on the show. What amazing synergy! I think bringing together different properties that all have ties to autism like this is the best way to get featured on Ellen. Best of luck.

  3. I strongly support your efforts to get Tommy Hilfiger on the Ellen show! I had no idea prior to reading your posts that Mr. Hilfiger, one the most well-known fashion designers, has a son with autism and is committing his own efforts to promote finding a cure. One in 110 children are diagnosed with autism and with statistics like that, I agree that there needs to be a new spokesperson for the future of autism. Thank you for sharing such great information and how to spread autism awareness!

    I remember Heather! I used to be an avid watcher of America’s Next Top Model. I think it’s great to support those who want to challenge themselves and see how far they can really get. You really used your creativity and reached out to a spread of organizations to accomplish your goals. Nice! 🙂

  5. Autism so much more common that people think. I think just the fact of awareness about autism can really get a fuel going in the fight to find a cure or to prevention education. I know parents with autistic children who do nothing but love these children. I’ve actually go to work with a few autistic children at an autistic children’s activity day at the YMCA in San Francisco. They are wonderful children. These children don’t have the mental capacity to judge or hate. In a way, that makes them better than us who have full mental capacity.

    This is such a great idea! Using personal stories like this is definitely the best way to bring attention to an important issue like this. Im looking forward to seeing this plan unfold. Keep at it!

  7. I think your mission to spread the awareness of autism is a beautiful topic. It’s something that people definitely forget about if it’s not affecting their life directly. Children with autism are so open to love, they just want and need people who can relate and understand what they’re going through.

    Your idea to have Tommy Hilfiger on the Ellen Show is such a fantastic idea. I actually think you could make this happen. I think the organization would really benefit about having a father’s opinion be heard loud and clear. Awesome job.
