Please Donate Today: Give Teens Desperately Needed Education and Job Training

API Generosity

Hi Friends!

 

Only 1 day left until I lace up my sneakers and participate in a 5K event sponsored by the Organization for Autism Research, and I need your support!

 

Help Me Provide Scholarships For Young Adults With Autism!

 

If you have received some value from Autism Plugged In, here’s your chance to give back.  

 

CLICK HERE to Donate $5, $10, $25 or whatever you can to help Jack meet his goal by Sunday!

 

Support Jack’s 5K and you will be giving young adults on the autism spectrum the opportunity for desperately needed education and job training.

Did you know that the CDC released a study in March 2012 that confirms the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder at a staggering, all-time high of 1 in 88 children?

 

A more recent government phone survey raises those estimates to 1 in 50 children!

 

According to a May 2012 USA Today article, half a million autistic kids will reach adulthood in the next decade.

 

What Does This Mean for Their Future?

 

1 in 3 of these children grow into young adults who have no paid job experience, college, or technical school training nearly 7 years after they graduate high school.

 

With your help, I am committed to raising $30,000 to give 10 young adults on the autism spectrum the opportunity to pursue a full-time post-secondary undergraduate education or a vocational / technical training education.

 

How You and I Can Make A Difference

 

1 – You donate to OAR’s Scholarship Fundraiser.

 

2 – I participate in OAR’s 5K in honor of my friend, “Kevin” – a 19-year-old high school graduate on the autism spectrum.

 

3 – OAR awards Ten (10) –  $3,000 education scholarships to fund a post-secondary educations for a qualified, future students.

 

4 – The scholarship recipients have hope for a brighter future!

 

I hope that you will consider supporting me in my effort by making a donation to the Organization for Autism Research.  Your contribution is 100% tax-deductible and donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts.

 

 

Thank you for your support — and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate, too!

 

Your support means a lot to me and to EVERY family affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder!

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
