Campaigns that raise the most money clearly explain: - Why this means so much to you - How thankful you will be Here's a start (edit this as you see fit): Every day we live with the direct effects of autism. The challenges are great and require a constant devotion from each family member, with some days requiring more energy than others. [Insert family member name with special needs] has blessed us with so many wonderful moments but has changed the way we are able to approach events that others are able to do on a regular basis. Autism affects us as a family mentally, physically, emotional and financially. We haven’t had true family vacation together in [insert time frame here]. Autism on the Seas is a non-profit company that allows families like ours to experience a vacation that at one time we would have imagined to be impossible. They arrange specific special needs accommodations with the cruise lines and they provide professionally qualified staff to assist us with expedited port check-in, meal assistance, pool time supervision, beach excursions, respite (time for [insert family member name with special needs] to be well cared for while the rest of the family can do other things), and many other perks and assistance. Autism on the Seas also provides pre-cruise professional consultation and valuable resources, including connecting with other families for support. Please let us know your message. NOTE: Be sure to add family member name and last vacation time frame (above) I Acknowledge* That I MUST and can ONLY use all funds raised through this campaign on an Autism on the Seas Staff Assisted cruise booked with Autism on the Seas for a cruise line reservation that has a guest with special needs cruising (and any other reservations with immediate family members of the guest with special needs that is cruising).
