Get Involved, Have Your Say, Make a Difference
According to the CDC, an estimated 1 in every 54 children lives with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These numbers occur in all racial, ethnic and wealth brackets. Children across the United States and San Diego live with autism every day without the same support their peers have to learn and grow. Be Involved *Act Now* Champion Autism now works hard to raise money that will help kids of all ages across the San Diego area gain the tools they need to live with autism.
If you, your family or someone you know has been touched by autism, here are some ways you can make a difference with B.I.A.N.C.A. today.
B.I.A.N.C.A. hosts multiple fundraisers for autism awareness and help. Our fundraising events are scheduled throughout the year. Keep updated on our Events Calendar when you want to be involved. We also have annual autism awareness activities and fundraisers. Spread the word about events such as Golf Fore Autism Charity Golf Tournament and our Annual Amazing Lace Fashion Show & Culinary Adventure.
Fundraise through Recycling
It isn’t hard to help local children and the earth at the same time. One of our popular autism awareness fundraisers includes our Fundraise through Recycling event. Bring in used office supplies such as laser jet or ink jet cartridges, copy machine toner cartridges and old or ruined cell phones. Instead of throwing these old items away, why not donate them to a good cause for the children of San Diego and the planet?
