We all know, well anyone full immersed in the autism world knows, Autism Awareness Month begins April 1st. For the last few years I have really, really, really wanted to find a way to communicate to everyone what people touched by autism want the rest of the world to know.
So I’m going to try it here in my little corner of the blogosphere. Send me a picture of you or someone you know or love who has autism, holding up a message they would like the world to know about autism. Maybe something they feel misunderstood about or just something they want to share.
Sort of like this:
Depending on how many I get I will either post one a day for the month of April or make a slideshow of them all and display it here and everywhere else I possibly can. Is a slideshow of thousands displayed in Time Square too high of a goal?
Send me your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can put in on the Four Plus an Angel facebook page. If you aren’t comfortable taking a pic just send me your message and I will put it on a slide.
Please pass this along to anyone you know who may be interested in participating.
If you are a Pinterest user I would be thrilled if you would pin the image below to spread the word.
The autism numbers are now 1 in 88.
That is scary,
and so many other things that words fail me.
I’m not sure what my little slide show will do but I know it will be more than just one voice and our children, every one out of 88, deserve it.
