So the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event was on 10/10 and I have to say I did my fair share of fundraising. My total was $2710.10, or $700 over goal. How I did was was by basically using my Facebook page as a constant push for donations. I don't feel bad about it. When the math of autism breaks down, $2710.10 wouldn't even cover one child's one year of private services (speech, OT, music, play). So it's the least I could do.
We also used the day to take advantage of Nicole Tugeau's Kidsfest, complete with popcorn and live band. Ellie didn't socialize too much with kids she didn't know, but she did love the band. I think "My Sharona" is a new hit.
