Autism fundraiser...

A certain Cats at Finding Avalon was kind enough to bring this autism-based fundraiser to my attention.

The folks at Autism Speaks created a music video of the Five for Fighting song, "World", featuring images of autistic children and their families (The Bitch Squad not included...wink). The video was the work of Bill Shea.

Five for Fighting is donating $0.49 to Autism Speaks for each time the video is viewed - the funding goes toward research studies to find a cure.

Please take a moment to view the video and please pass this along.

I understand the goal to be 10,000 hits but this bitch thinks we can do better than that!
Thanks in advance.

i'm confused why the only statistic they used was "1 in 94 boys are on the autism spectrum." what's the statistic for girls? is it not an issue?

Good question Cryptogay...

Autism is more common in boys than girls.

I believe the average of the spectrum is 1 in 150 people.
