5% goes to AutismCares!

After planning a whimsical Willy Wonka themed bar mitzvah for my client’s son (post-Sandy), they chose AutismCares for their 5% donation – another Event that Gives Back!

An excerpt from their website:

“AutismCares provides grants for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders during times of crisis or unplanned hardships. Financial Support Awards provide financial relief up to $1,000 for individuals with ASD and their families to help cover costs associated with critical living expenses such as housing, utilities, car repair, funeral expenses, and other essential items on a case-by-case basis.”

Through Autism Speaks, AutismCares is financially helping disadvantage families to cover costs that have arisen as a result of the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Families can apply online to be considered for assistance.
