Another forward? What's going on?!? I couldn't resist this one from my SIL June, though. I've checked out the website and it seems legit.
Click HERE to see a short 3 min video about a sweet little girl with autism, and approximately 94 cents will be directly donated to Austism Speaks.
What gets me all teared up is that this website has hundreds of videos like the one above, all from desperate parents trying to get help for their children that seem to be slipping away by the minute. As one quote from the comments on that site says, "There is nothing more fierce than a parent fighting for their child."
A little bit about Austism Speaks:
"At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders.
We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.
Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.
Autism Speaks. It's time to listen."
