After it was decided that our #LIFT4Autism2016 group would hold an auction to raise funds to donate to Talk About Curing Autism’s (TACA) scholarship fund (for more information on that, click here), I sent out a request to my #IndieAuthor friends for help, and they didn’t disappoint.

I received a total of 27 #books from 16 extremely talented writers, and I’d like to thank them again for their generosity. Click on their names below to visit their Amazon page and show them some love!

LIFT 4 Autism 2016: Stronger Together!

Lift_BannerLarge

 

As the mother of an autistic child, this yearly event is dear to my heart and I’m honored to be a part of it. As most of you know, April is #Autism Awareness month, shining a global light on the condition an estimated 3 million people in the United States and 70 million people worldwide live with every day – 1 in every 68 American children, 1 in every 42 boys.
Though autism is the fastest growing developmental disability, for those on the outside looking in, it often remains a mystery. This month, we hope to shine light and spread compassion for families living with autism.

In addition to raising awareness, we also want to take action. This is the second LIFT 4 Autism campaign, rallying the reading community around this cause. More than 200 authors and bloggers are partnering with this effort, many donating #books and other items to an #auction the last week of April. Proceeds from this auction will go directly to our charitable partner, Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), a national non-profit organization dedicated to educating, empowering, and supporting families affected by autism. Specifically, our efforts will benefit #families served through TACA’s scholarship program to offset medical and therapy costs.

To stay abreast of LIFT news and developments this month, please join our Facebook Group.

Lift 4 Autism 2016 Campaign – Authors Needed!

LiftLogoSingle

Authors! It’s that time again. The wonderful organizers of #Lift4Autism, Ginger Scott and Kennedy Ryan, are ready to kick off the 2016 campaign, and we need #author participation to help support this important cause. Please read a message from Kennedy posted below, and make sure to check out the sign-up and Talk About a Cure for Autism (TACA) links. Let’s make this campaign even more successful than last year’s, and help families with autistic children!

***

Friends! Hope you’re doing well! Many of you participated in the first LIFT 4 Autism campaign last year organized by the lovely Ginger Scott and me. Some of you weren’t a part last year, but have graciously agreed to participate for 2016. We’re really excited about the campaign, which will kick off the first week of April, Autism Awareness Month, and culminate the last week with an online auction. We’ll donate funds raised from the auction to a program offering financial assistance to ASD families for medical bills and therapy costs. Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is our national charitable partner, and details of the program can be found HERE.
We’ll be following up with more details soon, but we wanted to at least start gathering participants and organizing items for the auction. There is a sign up HERE. If you aren’t sure yet what you’d like to donate, that is fine. You can just add your name and contact info, and confirm donated items later. If you know of other authors who would like to participate, feel free to pass the link on to them, or direct them to me.
One last thing. In addition to another t-shirt (we had so much fun with those later year – smile), Ginger is creating a website that will house campaign details, including videos from parents and others who have been impacted by autism. If you think you’d be interested in sharing how autism has impacted you or someone close to you, let me know.
Again, thank you so much for being a part of this, and we look forward to working with you in April to LIFT this cause high!
