Honestly, I hate checking my news feed on days like today. Most of my family 'thinks" they are helping, but they are just blindly sharing all the misinformation! What good does it do society if they share the wrong information, and further perpetuate the myths/misunderstandings?
This. "_______ awareness" doesn't really do anything for most things because people know. Things like "______ awareness" are just ways to do nothing, but still feel good, all while supporting so-called charities don't actually do what they claim. There are ways to actually make a difference, but "bringing awareness" to something everyone already knows about won't do anything.
A lot of us Autism moms are against Autism Speaks because the accept charity money and none of it goes to HELPING families of Autism.
Also- EVERYONE is aware of Autism. Its time for action. Its time to actually do something about it. Nothing about lighting a porch blue HELPS anyone.

Can anyone provide actual links and not vids showing their financials? I'm not being rude but am honestly curious. I can't find anything backing the vid up.
