Managing Editor's Note: Lynda Huggins is a Mother Warrior raising money for the Autism Research Institute Million Dollar Puzzle Campaign. She sent us this note:
Here is an update on the Million Dollar Puzzle. To date we have distributed 182,500 puzzle pieces to 48 states, Norway, Singapore, and 5 locations in Canada (468 cities). We are not yet in Montana or North Dakota. We have forwarded $68,855.79 to the Autism Research Institute. That means that many of those who have received the puzzle packets have not returned any of the donations they have collected.
I am writing to encourage you to go ahead and send in whatever you have collected; no need to wait until you have distributed all the puzzle pieces that you received. We want that total to rise! Many thanks to those of you who have already forwarded your donations to me.
Please make any checks or money orders payable to Autism Research Institute (or ARI). ARI will gladly send a tax receipt to anyone who made a donation and wishes to receive a receipt, Just be sure to note that someone wants a tax receipt when you send in the donations. (Be sure to include mailing address if not included on a check.) Mail the donations to me. (Email Lynda for her address.) firstname.lastname@example.org
