The LIFT4 Autism Campaign rallies authors, readers and bloggers from the romance reading community around ASD families during Autism Awareness Month. We are proud to call TACA our national charitable partner, and are hosting an auction to raise funds for its scholarship program. Thank you for LIFT-ing with us this month to benefit ASD families in April and beyond!
LIFT 4 Autism Auction Winning Bidders, please note: The money bidders submit is in exchange for goods donated by individuals, and though those funds will go toward a non-profit organization, we will not be providing tax documentation. Should you have a question or believe your situation merits an exception, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Autism is a neurological and biological condition typically affecting children between the ages in 18 months to five years old. It affects each individual differently and at different levels of severity.
Autism is a national emergency. Autism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify around 1 in 68 American children as on the autism spectrum–a ten-fold increase in prevalence in 40 years. It is now more common in the United States than pediatric AIDS, juvenile diabetes, and childhood cancer combined.
Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism. For families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments. TACA helps to strengthen the autism community by connecting families and the professionals who can help them, allowing them to share stories and information to help improve the quality of life for people with autism.
