Having a brother profoundly mentally retarded I know what it means to be challenged every day with a disability problem. Autism awareness is about supporting families thorough these challenges and helping people with autism to get the best potential out of their lives. Angie, a friend of mine on myspace, and mother of a child with autism sent me a message informing me of this campaign. Please support it, if you can! :-)
An art auction to benefit the Autism Society of McLean County, Illinois' "Walk for Autism" (www.autismmclean.org) is being planned. The Autism Society is calling all artists to submit original works with autism as a theme. The date of the auction will be in the spring, date dependent on securing the location and auctioneer.
