What Kind of World Do You Want

I came across the inspiring and moving site What Kind of World Do You Want today, from an email forwarded by my sister-in-law. This is an amazing idea put together by John Ondrasik from Five for Fighting and inspired by their video "World". Anyone can upload a video to the site and every time someone watches the video, just under $1.00 is donating to a charity.

The videos for Autism Speaks are especially poignant, bringing the beautiful faces of real children to the statistics and research breakthroughs everyone hears about. Autism Spectrum Disorders have changed the lives of so many families and I have seen first hand how good therapy can make a difference and how much more we need to learn about these disorders. It is devastating to think that so many children do not have the services they need, and Autism Speaks is working to make high quality therapy for all children a reality.

Please take a few minutes to watch a video or two, but be warned that you may need a tissue while you do.
