SHELTON, Conn. -- Jules Cayer, 12, of Shelton, is passionate about being a Girl Scout, participating in the robotics team at Shelton Intermediate School and raising awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder, according to the Shelton Herald.

Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Jules now runs a small business selling keychains and ornaments to raise money for two organizations —  the Autism on the Sea Foundation and the Charlie Grant — that also raise awareness about the disorder, said the Shelton Herald.

Her business has become such a success that she is now sponsored by the Autism on the Sea, a foundation that organizes cruises for adults and families with autism and other disabilities, the Herald said. The company pays for all of her materials, and Cayer, said that makes her happy, along with the look on people's faces when they buy her goods, the Herald said.
