Help The Fight Against Autism

As you all know I have a couple of causes that are near and dear to my heart.  The first one is March of Dimes.  The second one is autism.  Not only do I have a cousin with autism, but my sister in law is an autism specialist.  She is in New York right now studying with one of the top specialists there.

The band Five for Fighting has truly stepped up to the plate with this issue.  Every time you watch the video here, Five for Fighting will donate $0.40 to Autism Speaks.  This funding goes towards research studies to find a cure.  They are hoping for 10,000 hits.  However, I know the blogging community, and I know what we can accomplish.  Please pass this along to all of your friends and family.

Now, my cousin does not have same type of autism as the child on the video.  However, the challenges regarding therapy and the insurance companies is the same.  I do have to warn you though — make sure you have a box of Kleenex’s nearby because you are going to need them.
