Many of our fellow bloggers and probably people we know in our personal lives have children who are autistic. I personally work with many adults who have autism. They are treasures to their parents, but they can also be extremely challenging. It is also very frustrating to try to get the help they need at such a young age to be the most beneficial.
One of our friends, Zachary at Blogging Blue, alerts us to a program sponsored by Chevy that will help further the cause:
Chevrolet Will Donate up to $1 million to Autism Speaks when Consumers Take Virtual Test Drives of the All-New Chevy Malibu during Autism Awareness Month. If you go to “Help Chevy Help Autism” during April - which is Autism Awareness Month - and take a free virtual test drive of the 2008 all-new Chevy Malibu, you will directly help Chevrolet reach its goal of donating up to $1 million to Autism Speaks and its mission of support for individuals and families affected by autism, increasing awareness of autism, and raising money to fund autism research.
Chevrolet has committed to a minimum contribution of $500,000, but every virtual test drive taken gets Chevrolet closer to its ultimate goal of $1 million.
You can go here to take the "Test Drive". It only takes a few moments of your time, and it will help a lot of people.
