Autism Speaks.Org and the HMIP Team Making a Positive Difference

HMIP
Did you know that “1 in every 110 children are diagnosed with Autism”?  
-Autism Speaks.Org

As part of my 2011 Initiative I have chosen to adopt Autism Speaks as the children/family cause going into the month of February.

Most recently, my family and I have registered the Hot Mama In Progress Team to partake in the upcoming Autism Speaks Walk on Key Biscayne, Florida on Sunday, February 27th, 2011.

Linked to the”“Hot Mama In Progress” Facebook page and partnered with our friends & family, we are hoping to encourage others to join our team and walk with us, as well as, receive online donations for this important cause.

I’ve set up FB events within my personal page and that of the HMIP page to create awareness of this upcoming walk and gather support for the upcoming Autism Speaks Walk.

While I am not directly affected by this disease, nor do I personally know someone who is… I am a mother, an aunt, a wifey and daughter. I can’t fathom having a child that is diagnosed with Autism or any other life-long disease. But this does not mean that I can not do my part to help others.

As my mother has always told me: “Haz bien y no mires a quien.”

Translates to: “Do good by others & don’t discriminate as to whom.”

We all have different causes, issues and concerns that we feel are important and deserve awareness and support. This is great! Because if we all shared support for only the exact same causes then…

Who would help the other important issues?

Autism may not be one that you have personally considered.

Nonetheless, Autism Speaks needs your help to fundraise for a cure.

Whether you can make a monetary donation now of ANY amount or “donate” your time by volunteering to share our Hot Mama In Progress Team’s Official Donation link…

IT ALL COUNTS!

Take the 1st step with me today to make a positive change in our community by joining our HMIP Team and register to walk/collect donations with us online now!

My family, including my daughter are registered as part of the Hot Mama In Progress Team and will be there, stroller and all on the day of the walk.

I ask that you “donate” the “website” space on your social networking profiles to show our team’s link in support of creating awareness about Autism and fundraising.
