Event - Defend from Autism
Participant: Sonia Khan
Date: April 2010 - April 2011
Event Detail: Hello, I am an 11th grade high school student, and this is my donation page for military families affected by autism. 1 in 110 children in America have autism. One out of every 88 military children has a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. ACT Today! raises money to help military children with autism. I have no affiliation with the military, but I do with autism. My own brother and cousin are autistic. I have seen firsthand the time, effort, and pain it takes to care for autistic children. I can well imagine the burden families in the military face when effected by autism. Lets defend those who defend us. Defend them from the burden of autism. Please donate now...- Sonia
