Less than a week left to vote for us for #crisafullicares! We are so thankful to our community member Steve for nominating us. Here's his story:
"My son is on the Autism Spectrum and they offer a lot of services and opportunities for people on the Autism Spectrum. The organization provides not only support for those in need but also provides wonderful opportunities to participate in fundraising. They offer a lot of resources for people to learn more about Autism and also offer guidance to parents, enabling them to better understand people with Autism."
All you have to do is go to crisafullicares.com, find the Autism Society, and "vote"! You can vote once every 24 hours. Thank you all for your support!

From Spectrum News -
Hello everyone, my names Melissa Steininger and I'm a reporter with Spectrum News. After speaking with Janine from the Autism Society, we are looking to run a story about the 'Blue Pumpkin' campaign for trick-or-treating this Halloween. We're looking to reach both families who may be participating or those don't feel it's right for their family to participate in this campaign. If you're willing to speak with us on camera, feel free to message me on here or give me a call (518) 560-1487. I hope we can spread the word to give this community a voice on their thoughts or concerns! Thank you!
We wear our autism sash with pride. For my boys 14 & 18 ASD is part of who they are and will always be. Everything we do is from the perspective of someone with ASD. We view the blue pumpkin as an opportunity to share our journey and help educate those who don’t live in our world. My younger guy (high functioning and verbal) use to wear a pin that introduced him as a young man with ASD asking for understanding, while he maneuvers through all the stimulation. Either way, I wish you all a happy and safe day.
