Back to I am Raising Autism Awareness!

Send a Child Who Has Autism to Camp this Summer!

Did you know that more than 1 million people like you belong to Causes on Facebook which support Autism Speaks? Thanks to your efforts, we have raised over $50,000 to fund research, awareness, advocacy and family services programs.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Baker family, Autism Speaks has launched the new Autism Speaks Baker Summer Camp Scholarship Program that will provide eligible camps with funding to offer scholarships to campers with autism.

With the existing budget, Autism Speaks has the budget to send 40 children to camp at a cost of $2,500 per camper. Our goal is to expand this program (through grants and fundraising efforts) to allow Autism Speaks to send 100 children to camp in the summer of 2010. There is an urgent need for this program in our community. Any contribution will make a difference in our fundraising efforts.

We are asking you to make a donation of any amount to supplement our fundraising efforts for this very worthwhile program. If you cannot, please share this fundraising campaign by asking your friends to donate or posting it on your Facebook wall.

Thank you for your continued support of Autism Speaks!
