Autism In Australia: A Morass of Thoughts
Final Inning for our Matching Gift Campaign

Giving Tuesday: Who Has Given More Than Autism Families?

Thank you typeOn this "Giving Tuesday" I ask a simple question. Who has given more than autism families? Than our Age of Autism family. And most of all, than our CHILDREN themselves? We could call it "Given UP" Tuesday because we have given up so much. Milestones. Recitals. Holidays. First loves. Graduations. Vacations. Weddings. Grandchildren. Savings. Retirement. And on it goes.  But we have NOT given up, nor will we.


I know we have changed dramatically since Dan Olmsted's death. Truth be told, we were already changing. Politics and Covid social media crackdowns hurried us along. Young families do not seek us out the way the "tough nuts and old timers" sought out Yahoo groups. Many think autism is kind of OK and everything will be just fine. Ah, youth. We have no "omerta" at Age of Autism. The journey grows tougher, more exhausting and frustrating as our kids age into adulthood. The schooling parents think is so bad today (and much of it is) will seem like the halcyon days once age 23 hits and the bus stops coming.  It's imperative to have  a voice of reality. The site that tells you that all is NOT well. If we don't, our kids' very lives will have been in vain. Ours too. And we can't have that. Please consider a donation today. Online or at Autism Age, PO Box 110546 Trumbull CT 06611. Give 'til it hurts. That's our way. XOX  Kim

Reprint of my original post regarding this year’s matching donation campaign:

Dear AoA Readers,

What a joy it is to connect daily with those whose lives have also been impacted by "autism", a label which many of us believe to be an intentional misnomer for serious, life-altering, debilitating, often catastrophic, vaccine-induced injury.

I certainly did not ever think 25+ years ago, once I made the connection between "routine" childhood vaccinations and our son's subsequent loss of skills, development of odd behaviors, and resultant profound disability, that medical "professionals" would still be administering vaccines to children. It was my sincere, and very naive, belief at the time that once I, along with so many other parents, began sharing what happened to our children after their vaccinations that it would become front-page news, with doctors, government regulators, legislators, the media, and even remorseful vaccine-making companies screaming for an immediate moratorium on each and every vaccine until we got to the bottom of what was causing not only "autism", but the many other new disorders of childhood. How incredibly wrong I was.

Those I now refer to as "vaccine profiteers" refused to hear so much as a suggestion that vaccines were anything other than safe, effective, and needed. They banded together, and in their willful ignorance, prideful arrogance, and for many, full-fledged corruption, began to collectively and forcefully ignore, dismiss, belittle, and malign parents who reported their children's vaccine injury and vaccine death stories, which they had witnessed firsthand. Throwing caution, compassion, ethics, and morals to the wind, they proceeded to add more and more vaccines, in more and more haphazard combinations, to the childhood "vaccination schedule". They lobbied to further restrict exemptions to vaccinations, and then went further, making laws to eliminate exemptions, and laws permitting children to make vaccination decisions for themselves without their parents' knowledge or consent, and then went yet further, making laws to punish and delicense the rare doctor willing to write a medical exemption for a patient.

All the while, those who manufacture, administer, approve, recommend, promote, and mandate vaccines have remained free of accountability and liability, often getting rich, advancing in position, and gaining in power. To date, and to the best of my knowledge, not one person has been held personally liable, been personally fined, been fired, or faced so much as a day in jail for their complicity in vaccine-induced injuries and deaths, which now affect the vast majority of the world's population, given the widespread and ever-increasing use of vaccines.

Think about that...vaccine crimes committed day in and day every country, in every age group, now including babies in the womb...with no signs of slowing down or stopping...and with no worry of being prosecuted or punished, at least here in the earthly realm.

Thankfully, since 2007, the Age of Autism website has been a beacon of light to those of us whose children have been diagnosed with "autism", and to so many others, who love, work with, or care for someone with autism, whose children have suffered other forms of vaccine-induced injuries, including death, who have suffered their own vaccine injuries, and who simply want to read information that has not been censored, altered, or lied about by mainstream media, medical organizations, and our government.

Kim Rossi, Managing Editor, and mother of three young-adult daughters, all diagnosed with "autism", has forged on, year after year, to keep this blog up and running. That is no small task when one is a single mother caring for and managing the intense needs of 3 dependent young adults. To that end, my husband and I are again offering a matching donation campaign to both keep AoA up and running, and to keep our fearless leader, Kim Rossi, encouraged and motivated to continue to make this forum available for those of us who read, comment, and connect here at AoA. Here are the details:

$10,000 Matching Donation Campaign, beginning October 30th, ending November 30th

All donations made during the above timeframe will be matched, up to $10,000

Donations can be made by check or credit card, with details at the top right on AoA's home page

It would be wonderful if we could far exceed the matching amount, enabling and encouraging Kim Rossi to continue on with this important publication

Please don't delay, donate today!

With deep appreciation for all those who write for, read, comment on, and donate to Age of Autism,

Laura Hayes
