Why I Choose The Charity
Autism Speaks helps research what causes autism and it helps to connect people impacted by autism to things like therapists, doctors, camps, information and help that they need. Autism speaks mission is to make a meaningful difference throughout the entire life of people impacted by Autism. My sister has special needs and even though she does not have Autism I want to help her and many others like her by raising awareness and money to fund research so that one day maybe Autism can be “cured”. I would also like to be a big part of Autism Speaks just like my dad and my mom. My sister has many similarities to autism such as communication problems and behaviors (good and bad) but she still is very nice and makes A LOT of friends. Other kids with special needs sometimes have trouble making friends and Autism Speaks can help them communicate better. I have helped my dad raise money for Autism Speaks and I would like to raise a lot more.
How I Plan To Raise The Money
