Great Mom, Great Cause

Follow Etsyian and yet another Fabulous Artistic Mom, Amy of Giggleberry Creations is in the process of planning a major fundraiser help with program and life costs for her 7-year-old, Felicity, who has severe Autism.

Amy's family has found an amazing program through the Autism Treatment Center of America, and Felicity has made major strides already, but they need your help. Since the program is based in the U.S. and Amy's family lives in Sydney, Australia, travel expenses are mounting, and Amy has joined with the families of two other autistic children to help raise the funds they need to continue Felicity's development.

You can read more about Amy's family and the masquerade ball fundraiser here. Amy is asking fellow Etsy shop owners to donate items to be auctioned off at the event. If you can help, convo Amy via Giggleberry on Etsy.

What a great mom to help your kid in this way :). I saw a video of the program you're describing and I'll put it down here. It is a recovery video of a boy with autism which family worked with the son-rise program. It really inspired me and maybe it can help you with your fundraising!
