Today is: WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY

Help me help Aaron. Today is the day... and I'm not kidding. I know my family is always coming up with things we want to raise money for. Lately those things are cancer related but right now I want... NEED.. to help Aaron. Today is literally WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY. We all know the story about Aaron and how he needs a dog to help him with his autism and to prevent him from running away. If you don't know the story click on the link below and you can read all about it. He needs $5,000 for his service dog and he has already raised around $1,100. There is no time like the present.. and life is too short. Here is my idea.

If you are a dog lover, you already understand how much this will change his life so give the kid $10. If you're not a dog lover, but you're a human being and want to do the right thing... do without your latte today and donate $5. Then, send this link to all of your friends and co-workers and ask them to do the same thing. It's that simple. Heck, I don't have a dog and I can't say I'm a big animal lover but I'm going to give him $25.00.

Folks... it's WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY... can you think of a better time? Click on the link to find the address to send checks and the place to make a credit card donation (half way down the page on the right hand side). We have until midnight and I KNOW we can do it.

We still have 2 and a half hours to to get Aaron's Dog for him tonight. I'm making my donation when I get off the blog.

Have a great evening and let's make a dream come true.

My nephew, Noah is 11 and autistic, so I understand what Aaron's family goes thru. Thought I should tell you that Creative Memories is currently voting for their next charity to help (only consultants can vote) and when I voted..........Autism so far is in the lead!! So keep your fingers crossed for Autism.

Amy & Angie,
You two are the greatest. You have hearts bigger than anyone I know. You have inspired me once again and I have just fallen in love with little Aaron. I just made my donation for Aaron's dog, I hope he gets it soon. Thanks for all you do. I would have never known about Aaron if it wasn't for you two.

Just wanted to add my thanks to you too Amy and Angie and Doreen....that dog will not only help Aaron but it will also give Danica and Jason some relief in being able to go places and to not have to follow behind him every step that he takes.
You are awesome!!!!!!
Thanks to all who have helped get Aaron on his way to getting a dog

GOOD LUCK to Aaron and his family.
This is all to close to home :)
My 7 year old son has Asperger's, every minute of his success is powerful. Keep your strength.

Doreen, Amy and Angie, and Rick too!

Thank you for posting the web site for Aaron. Our company (Alliance Data) just made a donation through our "Snacks for Charity" fund to help him get his new buddy. Thank you for being an inspiration to us and reminding us all what really matters!
