Those of you who are fairly new to the Age of Autism family might not know our history, particularly our history with our sponsor Generation Rescue. The "prototype" AofA was a blog called "The Rescue Post," and it was launched by JB Handley and GenRescue. Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill formed Age of Autism and rolled in Rescue Post, thus a star was born! GR, like each of our sponsors, and like all of the most effective autism orgs, runs lean and mean and provides immediately accessible information and services to families. You could say the walk they walk without the walk..... From GR:
"Today is "#GivingTuesday, a day for donations. And while we know that all of us run on tight budgets, if you have family and friends who are looking to donate to an autism organizations, we hope you might suggest Generation Rescue as a wise choice.
You already know Black Friday. You've probably heard of Cyber Monday. Now we want to introduce to you: #GivingTuesday!
On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
This year, join us and give hope to families affected by autism."
