This iReport is part of an assignment:
HUNGER STRIKE: DAY 4 - MACON, GEORGIA FOR AUTISM
This is Michael Buckholtz, founder of the non-profit Aid for Autistic Children Foundation, Inc. and diagnosed Asperger. I started the foundation to financially aid poor and disadvantaged families coping with autism. I also include dependent and independent autistic adults. This need is definitely not getting the attention it deserves and I've decided to go on a 30 day (and beyond if necessary) hunger strike. I am currently on Day 4. Autism for me and many others, lasts well beyond World Autism Awareness Month in April. It is now May and the silence is deafening. Check out my video to hear what I really think.
Peace & Love,
Aid for Autistic Children Foundation, Inc.
I also wrote a book about how I've lived and continue to cope w/my autism. Here's the link: https://www.createspace.com/3376832 If you purchase the book, you will be donating to AACF, Inc. It's a way to help the Autism Community right now.
