Pueblo West man selling homemade bracelets for autism

Posted at 11:02 PM, Aug 19, 2020

PUEBLO WEST — A man living with autism in Pueblo West has found a unique way to give back.

Josiah Aguilar taught himself how to make paracord bracelets while staying at home during the pandemic.

He is now selling the bracelets for $5 and donating the money he makes to "4-20 Autism," a non-profit that is dedicated to raising awareness about the benefits of using cannabis as a way to treat autistic tendencies.

"Since they are not really out there in the community, they need help. So if we can have as many people to help understand what I am doing this for, that's awesome," Aguilar said.

If you're interested in buying a bracelet, drop by Josiah's house on Monday or Wednesday, near Maher and Bond in Pueblo West.
