Autism Awareness Day!

Welcome everyone to my first ever Autism Awareness Fundraiser!

Click HERE to purchase one of the many unique handmade items.
100% proceeds go toward Autism Research!
Thank you for joining me today in learning and spreading awareness of autism. Many of you already know that I have a 7 year old nephew, Brock, who is autistic. It is in his honor that I am dedicating this event to on my blog. Today is Autism Awareness Day all over the world. Later today I am attending a presentation at Brock's class. I will report on that later. I've found a lot of information on autism that I would like to share with you in following posts. Another part of this blog event is to raise funds for Autism research. I am participating in Walk Now for Autism on May 2nd and am collecting monetary donations for that event. It is to this event that your donations / payments will go to directly. Several great friends of mine have generously donated items for this purpose. I am truly touched by your quick responses to help.
Of course you don't have to purchase something to help, you may donate any amount you wish by following the same instructions.
Anyone who donates at least $10 will get a free bookmark and a free table runner pattern from me. Please email me your mailing address so I can send you the thank you gift.
Again, thanks so much for your participation. Whether you are reading the info I've compiled, donating an item to be sold, purchasing a donated item or kindly donating funds to the cause, you are helping those who have autism and those who love and care for someone who is autistic.
If you've read this post in it's entirety, please leave a comment to be entered into a drawing. Winner announced April 3rd.
