Dear Friends,

Many thanks to all who organized or attended our April Songs for Autism Coffee House.  At the risk of forgetting someone, a SHOUT OUT to:  Master mind Viki Gayhardt, Duo Extodinaire Dave & Sue Bastien, the fabulous Susan J. Levine, special guest Ryan Judd, maker of pretty things Adrienne Evans, the imitable Elizabeth Webster, crafty basket-maker Jessilyn Carey, and all who bought raffle tickets, sang along, or just came to enjoy the vibe.

We raised more than $800 to support positive change for NH families and individuals impacted by ASD at this event.

The NH Council on Autism Spectrum Disorders is funded entirely by grants, contibutions from participating agencies, and grassroots fundraising.  There are no dedicated funds within the NH State Budget for the work of the Council. Without the support of ordinary citizens and partner organization, we would not be able to provide adequate leadership and substantive assistance in meeting the public health challenges of autism here in New Hampshire.

So... we have another opportunity to Make a Fashion Choice for NH Families Living with ASD,

Check out Funky Planet, where artist and Concord mother Adirenne Evans is donating 20% of proceeds to the work of the NH Council on Auitsm through the end of April.  You need to mention promotion code NHCASD.

With thanks for your support

Sarah Aiken                     
Chair, NH Council on ASD
