BENEFITING: MILESTONES AUTISM ORGANIZATION
EVENT DATE: Feb 23, 2014
Hi Everyone! On Sunday February 23rd, I will be attempting to "Strike it Big" for Milestones, an incredible organization that provides amazing resources and education for families and educators who are touched by Autism and related disabilities. I'm asking for your support (and hoping the bumpers will be up so that I'll be able to break 100!!!).
As a school psychologist who works in a public school setting, I have benefitted tremendously from attending Milestones conferences and workshops for professionals over the past 10 years. This is truly a wonderful organization. Whatever you choose to donate will certainly be appreciated!!
For more information, feel free to read on, or go to their website: www.milestones.org
I THANK YOU for your consideration and generosity! ~Edie
