The Forever Story Autism Project

Got the following from Nick's Writing Blog

The project launches today and aims to create the world's longest collectively written story. There are no fees on offer for writers, however; instead the project aims to raise a large sum of money for children with autism.

The money will be donated by the telecoms company TalkTalk. For every contribution to the story via the website at www.theforeverstory.com, TalkTalk will donate £1 (around $2 US) to the British children's autism charity Treehouse. The project press release explains:

There are around 100,000 children with Autism in the UK, with around half a million family members directly affected by the condition. We want to raise awareness of the work Treehouse does to alleviate the often huge financial and emotional pressures associated with looking after a child with Autism and raise the much needed money so their work can continue.

There is also the Autism Solution Center's Call:

ASC NEEDS YOUR HELP! Our annual fundraiser scheduled to have taken place in April did not happen as scheduled. This fundraiser typically helps to fund our operational expenses and some programs during a 6 month period, while we work on funding from other sources. We are now in need of financial assistance, to help get us through to our next major fundraising event, our Autism 5K Run/Walk in September.

We need to raise $10,000.00 during this month to help keep our programs running and keep our services available to families in need until our next event in September. We know that it's difficult for individuals to find extra funds for contributions these days, but we have a solution and hope you will choose to play a part!

We are starting a $1 Drive, recognizing that most are experiencing financial hardship at this time. Not everyone can give $10,000.00, but we know that there are 10,000 people out there who can easily give just $1.00. Many can give more!

Please participate and help us spread the word to find 10,000 people willing to donate $1.00 and make a difference in the lives of those effected by autism.
