Throughout the year we are reminded that the autism community is among the most generous groups in the country; our families answer the call for help every time as we create fundraising events and awareness campaigns all year long. So we turn to our extended communities for help during November and December with our Annual Appeal. We couple this appeal with Giving Tuesday .
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity
In 2017 your family or business faced some of its biggest challenges ever. For families of children with autism, every day is a challenge regardless of the economy. Our children cannot ‘cut back’ on their disability. Add a life challenging event like hospitalization, job loss , illness of a caregiver and a family is in crisis . Our Annual Giving Campaign and #givingtuesday donations are restricted to our family emergency fund. You can feel good donating , knowing that your gift will help a family truly in need.
