I’d like to thank all of the API subscribers, app developers, friends, and family who have contributed to our 5K efforts for OAR’s autism scholarships fundraiser – with your help, we have already raised over $13,000!
YOU Can Help Give Scholarships to Ten Kids on the Autism Spectrum!
Today’s the Day!
If every Autism Plugged In newsletter subscriber donates $10 today, Wednesday (April 10th), we can raise an additional $13,000! How incredible would that be for our community?!
I really do encourage everyone to participate, and to remember that every dollar really does count! If you can’t afford to give $10 on the 10th, that’s okay! Just give what you can, and I’m sure we’ll meet our goal of $30,000 before the deadline of April 28th.
Friends – I hope that we can all pull together today – Thursday, April 10th, and make a difference. $10 is all it takes, but we really need everyone to participate!
Invite your friends and family to participate — Help Us Send 10 Kids on the Autism Spectrum to College or Vocational Training!
Thanks again for being an awesome group, and I hope that Autism Plugged In has helped you in some way as you traverse this crazy world of apps and technology!
