Burlington, Canada –  Dorian Poe, Profiles in Brief

Starting in January 2013 autistic Dorian Poe sent his Ganz Webkinz Polar Bear Tikko out into the world to raise funds for autism awareness. Dorian who is 10 years old and autistic has been encouraging people who are traveling far and wide to take his stuffed polar bear Tikko on their trips to spread the word about autism. Tikko always travels in his ‘It’s okay to be different’ T-shirt.
