Autism Awareness Event

Image placeholder title

The numbers are staggering: Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed in one in 110 children in the United States. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Holly Robinson Peete, Rodney Peete and their daughter Ryan Elizabeth Peete will host a celeb book reading as well as autographing purchased copies of their two new books, My Brother Charlie(Scholastic) and Not My Boy! (Hyperion) at Toys“R”Us Times Square. This is a great way to put a face on Autism and help support the cause.

Rodney and Holly are deeply involved in the cause--their son R.J has autism. With determination, love and understanding, the family worked with R.J. to help him engage with the world. My Brother Charlie is told from a sister’s point of view, introduces a family whose oldest son teaches them important lessons about togetherness, hope, tolerance and love.

Earlier this month, the Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund kicked off the 2010 campaign by providing a $400,000 grant to Autism Speaks. Customers who donate $10 or more to Autism Speaks at any Toys“R”Us or Babies“R”Us store in the United States will receive a colorful, floral-themed reusable shopping bag designed by a talented artist with autism, James Hogarth, while supplies last.
