Now is the time to participate in a special fundraising campaign designed to support local children with autism and spread hope in the Fort Bend County community. On August 11th, a non-profit called Hope for Three launched the brick campaign as part of an event to raise awareness about the needs of children on the Autism Spectrum and to rally the community to provide support.
“Your assistance will ensure our ability to effectively serve the expanding community of children with Autism. Your donation will help families and their children with treatment and services they might not otherwise afford,” said Darla Farmer, founder and president of Hope for Three.
The campaign will support the construction of a beautiful brick pathway outlining the playground and leading into the main entrance of the Texana Center. Located in Rosenberg, the center is a premier treatment center for children with autism.
The cost of the engraved bricks is $50 for a 4 x 8 and $100 for a 8 x 8. Corporate sponsorships are available and encouraged, as a permanent link to support our cause and campaign. Brick order forms are available online: www.BlessedBeHopeforThree.org/events/brick-campaign
“The path of hope bricks will be a constant reminder of the ongoing fight against Autism and the laughter of these children should forever ring in our ears,” said Stacey Milton, Advisory Board member.
The campaign is scheduled to run through the spring with a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for April 28, 2012 to coincide with Autism Awareness Month.
The need is great. An average of 1 in 110 children in the United States has an autism spectrum condition. Our philosophy is quite simple: Give the gift of hope to families in need.
