GIVING AWAY SPORTS CARDS But Asking for a Donation to Willowhope!


There is a cause that hits home with me and to our family, and this same cause may actually impact some of you in your own life.  In the United States there is a growing population of children, teens, and even adults who get diagnosed with Asperger's Autism.  My son Joshua who is now 11 was diagnosed at 4 years old.  He has been tested several times, and consistently scores 141 on his IQ tests.  He is so smart, yet he can't comprehend doing what we all do on a day to day without even batting an eye.  He can do long division at age 7 yet at 11 he can't tie his shoes, ride a bike, or even get dressed properly.  As kids with Asperger's grow older, these issues just don't go away, they can get worse.  There is a young woman in the UK who suffers from Asperger's Autism and she is writing several books, from poems she wrote during her dark times as a teen, points of view to help parents of Asberger children, and even children's books to help newly diagnosed children.

My son Joshua and I at Boy Scout Camp
Chances are that each one of you reading this may know someone with Asberger's and know how hard life can be on them.  These books are being written by an actual woman who has suffered from Asperger's and not a doctor like many books out there.  The girl with this dreams name is Willow, and she has started several adventures, like forums, vlogs, and of course books.  Willow has opened her heart and soul to all the world to see, which is very brave!

Here is all her information to review, and PLEASE share this information to anyone who is affected by Asperger's!


Even if you don't donate, if you know someone with Aspergers please share her page with them.

Okay, now you maybe asking yourself how does this fit in with cards?  I have decided to donate some of my cards to help her cause to get her books published.

I will try to keep this open till Willowhope makes her goal.  You can track her goals at her website ZERO money goes to me, all goes to the upcoming author and soon to be famous Willow!
