"Bowling for Dollars" To Help National Autism Association NY Metro Chapter

I am so proud to be the Vice President and Treasurer of a not-for-profit, the National Autism Association - NY Metro Chapter, which provides direct support to families whose lives are affected by autism through free parent mentoring, moderated support groups, educational sessions and other activities and outreach. We have operated on a shoestring budget since we were established in March 2008 -- and have still reached many families and provided many great services. However, we want to expand our programs and services and reach even more families -- the need is so great for families of children and adults with autism. To do so, we are having a bowlathon fundraiser on March 21 and I am heading up "Team Henry and Scott" in honor of my own son and one of his best friends, who also is bowling with us.
Any donation in any amount is very much appreciated. Every dollar will go a long way to helping families. Please share this post with your friends and family as well!

Cick on the icon below to go to my donations page for safe and secure online donations. If you prefer to donate "offline" by check or cash, please email me privately.

If you cannot pass up an opportunity to bowl, go to NAA-NYM's FirstGiving homepage to start your own team or join an existing team, and join in our fundraising efforts and come out to have a blast bowling on March 21 at our fun-filled family event.

NAA-NY Metro Bowlathon

Help me help to support the National Autism Association NY Metro Chapter. We are hosting our first fundraiser - a bowlathon - on March 21, 2010. I have set up a team page for donations -- Henry and I are bowling as a team along with some friends. NAA NY Metro will use the funds donated to expand our programming and services to ASD families in the NY Metro area. We have operated on a shoestring budget since we were founded and we would like to be able to do even more for a population so in need! Any donation is much appreciated.

Catch Up!

Things have been busy here so I have lots of catching up to do....
I will post in more detail later but I have adopted a vegan (almost completely!) diet and have restarted my long (reallllllly long) dormant yoga practice. These changes feel really good and very positive. I will post more shortly about each of these. The new year brings so many opportunities for change and, especially with the vegan diet, it felt right and was a surprisingly easy switch to make. Who knew???
