Please go over to the Art Now for Autism site and take a look at all the art that's been donated, and 100% of the art sales will go to Autism Speaks through their National Walk Now for Autism Speaks event. If you've followed my blog, you already know how I feel about Roy Bedward, an artist who happens to be autistic. I'd do just about anything to help him, help find a cure, and most importantly-help those with autism find a voice, and let them be heard. You can read more about Roy here &here &here, to get a glimpse of someone who has so much to say, but is non verbal. Although with help, he can type, and his words will bring tears to your eyes. So---that said, here's all the details of the Art Now for Autism event, and please do share it on your blogs-spread the word! Today is still a preview day, but you can start shopping tomorrow. And maybe even consider donating work for this cause for next year-I know I will be!!
