PropStream is joining forces with Autism Speaks to help raise funds to enhance lives today and accelerate a spectrum of tomorrow's solutions.
As part of PropStream's corporate responsibility program, PropStream has decided to raise funds virtually with our employees, partners, and customers with a matching program. For every $1 donated by the PropStream community, PropStream will match donations up to $10,000. In addition, PropStream will donate its own $10,000.
Our goal is to raise a total of $30,000!
The program will start on Give Something Away Day on July 15th and will end July 31st, when PropStream will provide its final donation.
With the fantastic opportunities that PropStream has been able to provide to customers through real estate investment, we wish to share that same abundance with others by giving to causes that our group believes can make a difference in our country and in our communities.
1 in 54 children and 1 in 45 adults have Autism in the U.S.
Each requires a different type and amount of support. Some may live
entirely independently, while others require 24/7 care. With so many children and adults in the U.S. on the spectrum, Autism touches every member of our community. From aunts and uncles to grandparents and neighbors, there is likely someone in your circle that may be on the spectrum, and you can help support their needs through this fundraiser.
What is Autism?
Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder, refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. Autism is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences and is often accompanied by medical issues, seizures, and sleep disorders.
Why is Autism a Spectrum?
There is not one autism but many subtypes, and because of this, diagnosis is provided as a spectrum. Often those diagnosed with ASD will have their own unique strengths and challenges, which need to be supported by a range of customized therapies and supports for the individual and their caregivers.
What your donation will support:
- Screening and Interventions: left undetected ASD can lead to anxiety and depression, so early identification is vital for individuals to get the support they need
- Medical Research: for breakthroughs and understanding of ASD
- Transition into adulthood
- Reliable information and services
- Advocacy: understanding and acceptance to help those on the spectrum feel included in our communities
We are looking forward to your support in raising money for this important cause!
Thank you for your generosity,
The PropStream Family
