The Answer Inc. On CBS: World Autism Day
As many of you may know, Monday April 2nd, was a big day for The Answer Inc. Everybody everywhere was wearing my favorite color for World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) which aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with autism – and others living with autism – face every day. As a growing global health issue owing to its increasing exposure in the press and common knowledge, autism is an issue that is only gaining more understanding – and WAAD activities are planned every year to further increase and develop world knowledge of children and adults who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).”
World Autism Awareness Day also brings attention to autism around the world with the Light it Up Blue campaign. This will have buildings across the world light up with blue light. This includes locations such as the White House and Empire State Building. In my hometown, Chicago, The city’s skyline is lit in blue for World Autism Awareness Day - and CBS 2’s Lauren Victory has the story of a local autism advocacy agency - your very own, The Answer Inc (click image below to watch video)
It is commonly believed that if you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem... or as we like to put it - if you are not a part of the answer then you are likely a part of the problem. My hope is that you will commit to "Being A Part Of The Answer" by Opening Your Heart To Autism Today and supporting THIS YEAR'S WALKATHON.
With state budgets being cut regularly, it is only through your support that we are able to continue in our commitment to being The Best Autism Awareness and Support Agency in the Chicagoland Area and to continue delivering on our promises to the families that we serve.
