3rd Annual 1 in 91

Hey Guys and Gals,

So here is a update on whats coming up. I was invited to be a part of a awesome fundraiser show run by A.Skate. If you have never heard of them, here is a little about them that I copied from their site.

Who we are:
The A.skate Foundation is a non profit that allows children with autism to be a part of our social world through skateboarding. We hold clinics for children with autism at no cost to the families, give grants to children with autism for skateboard gear, as well as promote awareness and educate families about the skateboard industry. Five years ago 1:150 children were diagnosed with autism. Today 1:91 children are diagnosed with autism, 1:58 of those being boys according to the statistics on
TACA now.
Here are a few of the things that we do:
hold clinics nationwide for children with autism at no cost to the families
give "Grants for Gear" for kids to purchase skateboard gear
hold fundraisers and events to promote our cause

Autism, like skateboarding, can be unpredictable and often times unruly. We embrace the parts of autism that are hard to understand and give these kids an outlet that is free of rules or judgment, and allows them to be social without being “social”.

The show will be held on April 21st, 2012. Here is their flier for the show. I am so excited about it.

Now here is the WIP piece I am doing for the show. It will be done soon so please come back to check out the final piece photo, and if you can go to the show or even make a donation, please follow the link on how to do so.

Again, I hope alot of you can make it. I'm going to try, but not sure yet, but if you do end up going, please send me some pictures. That would be awesome!!!
