    i live in a small town and in some instances the organizations not only seem to be more concentrated and they have less of a wait, but as far as national organizations that bring awareness for certain issues we are severely lacking.

    We are huge supports of Easter Seals and Autism Awareness. It hits us close to home, we have 2 children that get support from Easter Seals and are autistic. The resources in our town are AWESOME We also are big couponers, and donate twice yearly 2/3 of our stockpile.

    I find it inspiring just that you are doing this, there are so many things that are important to me its so hard to just pick one, however if I had to pick I would say helping people learn about mental illness such as sociopaths and psychopaths as they can seem so normal and being sucked into their lives can nearly ruin your own.

    I love supporting causes for women and children. I have been involved in supporting Domestic Violence awareness , mentoring for pregnant teens, and now my latest is bringing awareness to the foods we eat. Our children are starting puberty at an earlier age due to the toxins in our foods, and cleaning's creating a synthetic estrogen called xenoestrogens, therefore resulting in little girls developing breasts and starting periods at a young age, boys going through puberty earlier, men developing breasts, and women going through pre-menopause in their early 20's.

    I used to work as a Developmental Aide for individuals with mental disabilities. I left after 13 years and stay home with my son who is in the Autism Spectrum. Well that was almost 9 years ago, he is 17 almost 18 now. Time goes so fast. Too many people are afraid of what they don't understand. They should educate themselves more.

    Ronald McDonald House has had my heart for 30 years. My now sister-law needed a bone marrow transplant. Back then few Hospitals around had the level of skill and knowledge to perform such a procedure. She was given a 1 in 4 chance. She had to go to New York City and was there for four months. The family would have never been able to support her if it was not for being able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House.
