While I’m not trying to depress anyone, if reading this blog makes you sad and being sad motivates you to get involved in the fight against pediatric cancer or in support of individuals with autism, then, you know, cry away.
And then visit the links below to see how you can help:
Children’s Cancer Research Fund: http://www.childrenscancer.org
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: http://www.stjude.org/
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research: http://www.alexslemonade.org
Autism Speaks: https://www.autismspeaks.org
National Autism Association: http://nationalautismassociation.org
Please note the above organizations are based in the U.S. and represent only a few of the many wonderful groups out there. I would love to expand this list so feel free to suggest others.
