Join in the Fight for Autism

I have many friends with autistic children. My own little sister is also austistic. It is a sad, tragic diagnosis with lifelong consequences for all involved. Over at the Allen Family blog I learned about this for the first time:

The band, Five for Fighting, is generously donating $0.40 to Autism Speaks for each time this video is viewed. The funding goes toward research studies to help find a cure. When you have a moment, please visit the link below to watch the video and pass it along to your friends and family. They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but hopefully we can help them to surpass this goal

From the website, we learn: For charity specific donations , will pay $1.00 per view of the designated charity’s videos - until the number of viewings equals the amount donated less .04 per view. The .04 expense is's .03/view webhosting charge and California Community Foundation's (CCF) 1% administrative expense. OVER 95% of money donated goes directly to the chosen charity!

For general donations, will again distribute OVER 90% of money donated to the selected charities. This is determined primarily by the amount of views per charity and available funds. The 10% expense will include's .03/view webhosting cost, CCF's 1% administrative expense and site maintenance.

Donations may be made in the name or directly to any of the charities and site will acknowledge the donation in the its list of contributors.

Donations to are tax deductible and payable to the California Community Foundation . The foundation's administrative expense is 1% of total donations and paid by wish them the very best of luck.
