I am raising funds to support a cause that is important to me while accomplishing a personal goal. Last year, I had the amazing opportunity to raise funds for the National Down Syndrome Society. Thanks to so many special people, I more than accomplished this goal! This year, I have decided to team up with Autism Speaks for the same reason. There are some very special people in my life who live everyday with Autism. Many of them have voices, while others do not. They bless my life each and every day just by sharing their unique gifts. This is why I feel it is my job to do my part to support an organization that supports them!
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 59 children is on the autism spectrum.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. They empower people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information covering the life span.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Thank you doesn't seem like enought for helping me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
