Vanish, the garment care brand committed to helping clothes live longer lives, today unveils its Channel 4 Diversity in Advertising Award-winning campaign, Me, My Autism and I. Backed by £1 million worth of commercial advertising airtime across the whole Channel 4 network, it aims to nurture a conversation to broaden public understanding of autism – particularly in girls, who are three times less likely to receive a diagnosis than boys.
