Beading to Beat Autism. As I have mentioned before on this board, Kara's brother has a form of Autism called Aspergers. Several of her friends also have brothers on the spectrum. Michala Riggle is a 14 yr old girl who started this fundraising cause when she was Kara's age. We are helping the cause to raise enough money to build a world class Autism Research and Treatment Center. 1 in less than 100 children are affected by Autism and this center is very much needed. If you would like to know more about the project please check out BeadingtoBeatAutism.org here.
Because this is such a great cause and a craft tutorial I am linking this post up on several linky parties. Please make sure to check my linky party page and check out all of the awesome blogs.
