April is Autism Awareness Month in America and Infolinks is excited to play a role in supporting this great cause. We’ll be donating a percentage of our April earnings to an organization aiding those with autism. Read on to learn how you can help start this first month of spring off right by assisting those working hard at improving lives!
What is Autism?
Autism appears to have its roots in very early brain development. However, the most obvious signs of autism and symptoms of autism tend to emerge between 2 and 3 years of age. Autism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify around 1 in 88 American children as on the autism spectrum–a ten-fold increase in prevalence in 40 years.
Why Raise Awareness?
Though big strides have been taken towards shining light on autism, there is still plenty of work to be done. Different organizations are working hard on developing appropriate services and different support for children, adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum and their families.
How is Infolinks Helping?
Infolinks pledges to donate 5% of our entire April earnings to a recognized organization committed to raising awareness of autism and providing the necessary means to families in need of support. This month you can feel even better about your clicks. Not only will you be learning more about a product of interest, you’ll also be supporting a great cause. Pat yourselves on the backs Infolinkers, we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!
We found a few organizations that we think are doing miraculous work to assist autistic children, adults and their families, so instead of choosing just one, we chose all three! Organization for Autism Outreach (OAR) is an organization that works solely on applied research and funds research studies. Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. And the cuddliest of the bunch, Heeling Autism, run by the group Guiding Eyes for the Blind, provides trained-to-assist dogs for homes with children with autism. Each of these organizations works hard to improve the lives of those living with autism.
Infolinks is dedicated to working with and for our community to better the world we all live in. Do you have a favorite cause? Leave us a comment on Facebook telling us the cause you most support and we’ll consider it for the future!
