Anyone who is a frequent viewer of my channel has probably heard my kids in the background. Joel (my oldest child) in particular loves watching me play video games, as well as playing himself, and occasionally even streams with me. Joel was recently diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD.) ASD conditions present a wide and varied set of challenges in educational and social settings, as well as in everyday life. It is also a condition that has a lot of stigma as people don’t fully understand what it is to have an ASD. Luckily, my wife and I are blessed to be in a situation where we can afford the proper resources to assist him. However, there are many families who cannot, and there is still a general lack of knowledge as to what autism is.
For this reason, I’ve decided that any and all revenue that is generated by my Twitch channel will be donated to my local chapter of the Autism Society of America From their website:
The Autism Society of America has been improving the lives of all affected by autism for over 50 years and envisions a world where individuals and families living with autism are able to maximize their quality of life, are treated with the highest level of dignity, and live in a society in which their talents and skills are appreciated and valued. We provide advocacy, education, information and referral, support, and community at national, state and local levels through our strong nationwide network of Affiliates.
So whether you wish to subscribe, donate, or just toss a few bits my way, you can know that you are helping to support a good cause. Thank you in advance for your help in assisting Autism Speaks in their mission.
