Spread the Cause. Win a BowTie {Autism Speaks}

April is National Autism Awareness Month! 

Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism.  Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to fund the organization.  Autism Speaks has grown into the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into Autism’s causes, prevention and treatments and finding a cure; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.  According to the CDC, around one in 88 American children is on the autism spectrum, a tenfold increase in 40 years.

Help us spread the word and support Autism Speaks! During the month of April, we will randomly select an individual who shares this post on Facebook or Retweets the post on Twitter to support Autism Speaks!  

We will announce the winner on Monday, April 29th!! 

Go ahead!!
