Today is #GivingTuesday, when people from all over the world show their support for causes that they care about. Your donations last year helped us advocate for autistic people’s rights to communicate, vote, control our own bodies, and live in our communities free from abuse and violence. We are determined to continue all these battles in the coming year — can we count on you to join the fight? Today, for #GivingTuesday 2018, you can support us by donating, taking an #unselfie, or both!
Facebook is matching #GivingTuesday donations up to 7 million dollars this year.This makes today a great time to donate, especially if you’d like a smaller donation to go farther. You can also donate as little as a dollar a month via Facebook’s new recurring donation feature!
Another way to support us is taking a picture with our #unselfie template and sharing it on social media. We’re asking you to #ShowUsWhatYouLove — take a photo with everything from pets, to stim toys, to favorite places, and use our printable template to let us know why you support ASAN! We will be retweeting unselfies all day today. Join in by tweeting your unselfies using the hashtag #ShowUsWhatYouLove to @autselfadvocacy.
We’re so grateful for all of the ways you’ve supported ASAN’s work this year, whether by making a donation, sharing our resources, or calling your elected officials and speaking out for disability rights. We can’t do this work without you, and we’re looking forward to another year of advocating together.
