I forgot to add this in my last discussion, but my local chapter of the Autism Society of America just had a walk event. It was the first one we'd ever had and wasn't sure how it would turn out. We were hoping for around 150 people to show up. I sat behind the registration with the treasurer collecting the donation forms and tshirt sales. The people and donations kept coming and coming and coming. When it was all said and done, over 600 people came, and we collected over $20,000, which will be used to help local families with autistic children get the services they need. Not too bad for small town Iowa!
