THE STORY:

I love getting involved in community causes, so I can't tell you how excited I am to be chosen as a crowdfunding participant for this year’s #summershareCLT. 


Out of the 116 participating nonprofits participating in this year's campaign, my choice of partnership was ACEing Autism, an organization that connects children with autism through unique tennis programs to positively impact the children, families and communities they live in. This nonprofit speaks to my heart, as I am privileged to love and be loved by not one, but two family members with Autism. One of them is my 6 year old nephew Lawson who not only lives with Autism, but Sensory Processing Disorder as well, and is non-verbal. Despite these challenges he must face daily, he is loving, intelligent, funny, uniquely observant, talented, sweet as can be, and capable of creating extraordinary change in the world. Programs like this help children like Lawson enhance health and fitness, hand-eye coordination, motor development and improve social skills while having fun without judgement!


Here are a few ways your monetary contributions make an impact:


$15 - buys one ACEing Autism Clinic 

$50 - buys a pair of children's tennis shoes OR a junior tennis racket

$90 - buys a 6-week ACEing Autism Fall or Spring Program Enrollment


Wish list items such as:


Jump ropes - for warming up, stretching, and hand-eye coordination drills.


Starbucks Gift Cards - for cool mornings in the Fall and Spring for volunteers to enjoy before clinics and other special events. 


Books - Over 70% of the volunteer force plays tennis regularly. From present and former Division I athletes to up and coming junior tournament players, providing resources to help the vounteers succeed off the court makes ACEing Autism even more special.
