Thank you so much to all who supported the RED Day Event on May 9, 2013 at the new office located in Short Hills, NJ right on Millburn Avenue. It was a huge success with so many people including Keller Williams Realty Agents, Representatives from Autism NJ, Millburn Township's Superintendent, a School Board Member, The Alternative Press, friends, and many more. We raised a ton of money to put toward Autism NJ's Classroom Packs for next year's Autism Awareness Month. Thanks again for your support, it really will "make a difference"!
It's official, we have made it happen - A partnership with Autism NJ and Keller Williams! For KW's annual RED DAY event, we will be coming together to raise money specifically for Teacher Resource Kits. These kits will be provided to any teacher who registers with Autism NJ to receive one for free. The kit will include lesson plans, professional development opportunities, decorations for bulletin boards for next year's Autism Awareness Month, give aways, and other information to support teachers in spreading Autism Awareness.
Autism NJ's current theme is to "Build Acceptance" and I am so happy that Keller Williams has taken on raising money to help make that happen. Our RED DAY event is supporting our local teachers by promoting character education as we spread Autism Awareness in our classrooms for our children. I couldn't be prouder! I hope you will stop by and join us in our efforts!
Thinking about doing a house tour in honor of Autism Awareness. It is after all, Autism Awareness month. Not sure that can actually happen this month, but was pondering for next. Considering utilizing a handful of Matthew's homes. Any interest, please lmk.
I couldn't think of a better day to launch my website! Today, April 2, 2013 is the 6th annual Autism Speaks, Autism Awareness Day. Approximately one in fifty children are diagnosed with Autism. It is important to have an understanding of Autism as it affects us all! My blog will aim to educate and support those touched by this disorder!
