Autism Awareness and giveaway of 2 copies of Wither

Can you imagine hearing the words "your child has autism"? In a split second, life - as you know it - has changed. For a different family every 15 minutes, tomorrow will never be the same.

By participating in this event, you are helping to change the future for all who struggle with autism. By donating, you are getting us one step closer to finding what causes autism, how to prevent and treat it, and ultimately a cure so no family ever hears those words again. Until then, we donate to find answers and raise awareness about the devastating toll that autism has had on families like ours.

I need you to help make tomorrow be about dance lessons, school lunches and first words rather than therapy, doctor appointments and despair. Together, we will find the missing pieces.

This is Autism awareness month. 1 in every 110 children are diagnosed with autism. My grandson Gavin who's 2 has recently been diagnosed with Autism. My daughter Jessica his mother is doing an Autism walk  in May. She is trying to raise money for autism awareness.She needs sponsors. So I am asking for your help in sponsering her.I have the best followers! All you have to do is go to the website for the walk and put in her name Jessica Helton  as a walker. Then just click on her name and donate to team Gavin.  We really need your help. Even if its just 10 dollars. Autism speaks only take donations of 10 or more.  Please help  Go here to DONATE
I am giving away 2 copies of Wither to two different winners. You get 5 extra entries for donating for Jessicas walk. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider us.

Not required to Donate to enter this contest. Winner chosen by Random.org



  1. I'm a 2nd grade teacher so I know how difficult and challenging autism can be. I would donate if I had the money but once again I'm a teacher and my hubby lost his job so if I could I would. Instead let me give you my well wishes and thoughts.

  2. My older brother is autistic and having spent my entire childhood explaining to countless people what "Autism" was, it is so refreshing now that people are trying to learn about it and understand it. I can only hope and pray that the efforts of so many to increase autism awareness will better the lives of children with autism. Thank you for the role you are playing in this!

  3. Thank you for being part of this event and for the giveaway! :)

  4. Thanks for participating in the hop, my son is on the Autism spectrum. I've heard that Wither is a wonderful book - thanks for the opportunity :)
