With more and more children being identified to have this neurological disorder, the need for additional research, education and other resources becomes more and more necessary. There are a lot of ways you can show support for autistic people and their families, including participating in the 2nd annual 'Swing 4 Autism' Golf Outing, coming April 6th at Maxwell Golf Course in Abilene.

Shay Shares Her Reasons for Supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

If I could do that we would never have to ask for money again it would just be something everyone would do without prompting. However, I can't do that so I'll try to give you a reason or two here, as to why I think this is the best charity to donate your hard earned money to.
