September Charity

For the month of September, I have donated to Autism Speaks. The statistics concerning autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is startling:  today 1 in 150 people are diagnosed with autism. This is more common than AIDS, pediatric cancer and diabetes COMBINED.
This cause is near and dear to my heart because my mom works in a school with kids who have ASD. It's heartbreaking to hear about these kids who are unable to communicate, who won't make eye contact or smile, and whose tiny lives revolve around confusing repetitive behaviors. 
So check out the website, get the facts and donate to this worthy cause.
