BIRMINGHAM, Ala. and NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- KultureCity in conjunction with IdeaTribes has launched an inspiring, national autism acceptance movement called "Love Without Words."

In our world, love is often defined by words. However, love travels far beyond the scope of language and should truly be defined by actions and in truth. This has never been more true for autistic individuals. Autists, whether verbal or non-verbal, can have a difficult time expressing love verbally, however this does not mean that they are incapable of feeling love. Love can be demonstrated in many ways without words. Love Without Words was designed to highlight that particular notion and to showcase the different nonverbal ways to display love.

Love Without Words will launch a social campaign filled with celebrities, influencers and companies who will all join forces to shift the autism conversation from awareness to acceptance. This campaign will be the first large-scale global campaign ever launched with a positive spin on autism. Love Without Words hopes this campaign will transcend generations and aid in helping autists gain acceptance and inclusion within the community at large.

This movement has a call to action for everyone who views this campaign to also upload photos/videos of themselves demonstrating how they, too, show love without words. In addition, donations generated via the campaign will be used to create sensory inclusive spaces across the country.

Current celebrity involvement includes: Tiki Barber, Ronde Barber, Roger Clemens, Mick Foley, Noelle Foley, Victor Ortiz Jr, Kellan Lutz, Dr. Temple Grandin, Geraldo Rivera, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric Bledsoe, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Sho Baraka, Fernando Varela, Michael Lington, Tom Petersson, Patrick Whaley, Andrew Fischer, Alimi Ballard, David Garibaldi, Xavier Mortimer, Sue Bird and the Seattle Storm, Grant and Julie Echols. Current companies involved include Joey Tag, Gemiini, Puro Sound, Pieology, My.com and Revelator Coffee.

Love Without Words is presented by IdeaTribes and KultureCity, the fastest growing autism non-profit in the nation that has accumulated multiple philanthropic accolades. The Love Without Words movement is located at www.kulturecity.org.
