I would like to tell you about The Mn Autism Fundraiser.  This fundraiser is being held  to raise money for Autism Allies, an organization that is working to improve the lives of individuals with autism and their families.  Autism Allies provides support, education and research, by helping individuals with Autism to reach their fullest potential.

My daughter, Alexis is 10 years old, she was diagnosed with Autism in 2005.  With that diagnosis came a desperation for answers about why autism rates are rising, fears about her prospects in adulthood, and also great pride in watching her develop and overcome many obstacles.

The Centers for Disease Control reported that 1 in 88 children are diagnosed with autism, and the number is increasing. There is no known cure for autism. However, studies indicate that early intervention in suitable educational settings results in improved outcomes for most children with autism.

Your donation will help enable Autism Allies to fund more autism support in the following ways:

To fulfill the mission, Autism Allies is dedicated to the following programs:

  • Providing and supporting services for the continual care and development of individuals with autism
  • Supporting and conducting education and informational activities to increase public awareness of autism
  • Creating and maintaining programs at schools and care centers to help them effectively develop individuals with autism
  • Assisting members of the autism community in seeking employment opportunities and prospective employers/recruiters seeking qualified candidates to fill vacant positions

On behalf of the millions of Americans challenged by autism, your generosity would be greatly appreciated.  You are not only helping to advance the lives of children and adults with autism, you are giving our families the gift of hope.

I would like to thank you for considering this opportunity to help with my event for raising funds for Autism Allies. If you have any queries regarding this event, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
