The tenth annual ACT TODAY gala supporting Autism was an incredible event, full of Hollywood stars, reporters, generous donors, & wonderfully inspiring families. Autism is a cause that is close to my heart. It is something that affects more families than most people realize. One out of every fifty children born in the USA is diagnosed with Autism. It is more prevalent than juvenile diabetes, pediatric cancers, & pediatric aids COMBINED.
ACT Today (stands for Autism Care & Treatment Today) is a national nonprofit organization that provides immediate and direct care & treatment to children with autism, including behavioral therapy, medical care, social skills programs, service dogs, & so much more.
ACT Today has given more than 1.5 million dollars in care & treatment since the establishment of the Denim, Diamonds & Stars event began ten years ago, so I was thrilled to be a part of it.
My favorite part of the night was getting to sign a book for one of the teens attending the event. I am always giddy when I get to meet other book lovers & I love sharing TRUST with them.
