INDIANAPOLIS – On Thursday, September 17th, the Autism Society of Indiana (ASI) will join with communities across the country for The Big Give for Autism – a 24-hour crowdfunding event celebrating the 50 years of advocacy and leadership by the Autism Society — helping individuals and families impacted by autism, provide options and opportunities while enabling individuals with autism to maximize their quality of life and life’s opportunities.
Beginning at midnight until 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 17th, individuals – using the hashtag #AutismBigGive – will be able to make a donation, the proceeds of which will be dedicated to supporting the programs, services and resources available through ASI to assist Hoosiers and their families, who are affected by autism.
When you support The Big Give for Autism (#AutismBigGive) you allow the Autism Society of Indiana to:
- Promote early identification and access to effective treatments for preschool children helping to reduce lifetime care costs by two-thirds;
- Help parents, teachers, and caregivers build education and treatment programs, so that all children and adolescents can leave school prepared to reach their fullest potential;
- Ensure that every young adult or post-graduate with autism has access to services and supports that maximize independence and secure the highest quality of life.
