    Autism Advocacy: 5 People From 50 States Can Do This!


    This is a call to all who care about empowering those in the Autistic Community through their struggles. I have a specific request: I'm looking for 5 people from all 50 States of the Union (the United States) to donate the minimum, Online, to Aid for Autistic Children Foundation. (www.aacfinc.org/donations) You will be helping a mom, in poverty, and her severely autistic teen, start fresh in a safe home.

    You see, she lost her original home in Katrina, then, the next house to fire. These two tragedi
    es were simply too much to recover from while caring for a severely autistic child. She refused help for months claiming it was her responsibility to figure a way out, but, the devastation left her in too deep of a hole. That's when AACF, Inc. got the call. With some coordinated assistance from the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi, MS., we've been on track to helping this mom and her autistic son find a permanent place of residence. AACF, Inc. just needs 248 people to donate the minimum at our official website. That's all! They will be placed in the home this weekend or... become homeless if no one takes action. I will post the honest results of this effort. The Catholic Diocese has done all they are designed to do. Now, it's up to us, through AACF, Inc.

    Please, spread the word to friends and neighbors! Now's not the  time to be shy! We are trying to keep a mom and her severely autistic  teen from becoming homeless after they've endured tragedy after tragedy.  Would you not expect the sa
    me grace afforded to your family if met with similar tragedy or circumstances?

    Warm regards,

    Michael Buckholtz/Founder
