Not sure I have the best memory, so not a very likely, but my memory will have to do for a likely, if only I could remember….uhhhh. The cause of this organization is more than just notable, or caring for a group of people. Their aim has soared against what people today are used to, or what they can believe possible. The goal of Autism Speaks is more than crazy, its awe-tistic, meaning it's inspiring, it's wonderful, and it's meant to help a group of people in an unimaginable way. They're changing the world in more than a small step, their impacting a whole entire group of people, who are taken to badly, so what, all people are created equal; right? So…, these people need a life which is fair, a life that they want, or at least what we want for them to have, aka the best we can possibly give. So recommending a group people trying to help another group of people in such a way that will benefit the group at a disadvantage, is something worth recommending. Thank You Very Much, Awe-tistic!
