Sometimes, a small idea plants a seed for a larger purpose. 11 years ago, Melissa was planning a small birthday party for her son, JT, who has low functioning autism. In lieu of gifts, she requested that folks make a donation to Autism Speaks, an organization that is very close to their hearts. From this, an annual fundraising event was born and has taken on a life of its own. Not only raising money and awareness for Autism Speaks, the event celebrates JT and children like him for the amazing and awesome people they are.
Gethrr is proud to be a supporter of the 11th annual JT’s Birthday Celebration. Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.
