Support local business

I’ve always been someone who believes in supporting local businesses in your community and in this case, I’m referring to local business in the autism community. I recently received an donation e-mail from Autism Speaks and the hook in this case was the young man Joe Steffy, a man with autism.

Turns out he was here in St. Louis recently but I missed him. I hope he comes back because he sounds like a great guy. Meanwhile, you can read more about him on his website here.

Sincerely-

Best Buddies

I got to think about this organization tonight because my son got the chance to hang out with a friend of his from school. It reminded me that I need to check out Best Buddies. It’s a group created to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities create friendships, develop leadership skills and gain employment.

I e-mailed them a couple of weeks ago and I need to print up the handouts they sent me. I’ll keep you posted.

Sincerely-
