A quicky...

Five For Fighting will be donating $.40 to Autism Speaks every time this video is viewed.

They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but I know that we can surpass this goal!

Take a minute and watch this video and then PLEASE pass it to your friends. If nothing else, you will raise awareness by passing this message along.

1 in 150 children are diagnosed with Autism. We have all been touched by Autism in some way, shape or form. Autism Speaks researches causes and treatments and raises awareness every day.

Help raise awareness, help fund research and treatment for children like my little man Andrew and the girl featured in this video, Claudia. Please help us surpass this goal and don't forget to pass this to your friends!

Thanks!

Not only did I watch it, I will sent it to the majority of my email address book, and my entire agency which is about 200 people. Hopefully it will be passed on.

But first I have a question:
Where did you get the information about the .40 donation? I read $1.00 minus .04 for webhosting fees? But the way it was written seemed strange in the "how this works" section... I just want to be sure to explain correctly...

I don't know the answer to that, Jessi.

The information I got was passed from a few friends that work for Autism awareness groups...

I'll do some more research and get back to you if I find something different.

I have found a couple different things. Looks like anywhere from $.40 to $.49.

A couple sites to check out:
