You will receive one entry per every $10 you donate, into the raffle to win one of 3 full packages pictured above!
It is Matteo's full collection: 3 books, greeting cards with one of Matteo's sentiments inside and one "I'm Different" canvas bag. Matteo will draw the 3 winners at the end of the fundraiser! Good luck!
We have been blessed with a gracious donor who has offered to match all donations we receive in December and January, up to $5,000! We are requesting your help in funding our outreach needs for the first half of 2019.
Your donation will help spread Matteo's message:
In just 3 short years, Matteo has:
• Authored 3 books
• Presented alongside Temple Grandin on a panel for autism at the USAAA conference
• Speaker at AutismOne 2018
• Presented at the Mayo Clinic to the doctors, nurses and staff
• Has presented in total, over 75 talks, including:
Autism and special needs conferences, elementary and middle schools, colleges, universities, and parents groups throughout the united states.
• Began a youtube channel and series called "Mondays with Matteo", where he spreads his messages of love, acceptance and "do not judge a person based on appearances."
Your donation goes directly into our Creative Autism Solutions Team, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is tax deductible.
Most of the organizations Matteo is asked to speak at are non-profits and unable to pay for or fund their guest speakers. And so, the donations receive give us the capability to spread and share Matteo's message to change societies view, therefore giving hope to those who are needing it. Some of the donations we receive can help defer the expenses involved in creating/tailoring a specific presentation and actually getting to the site.
Every single dollar makes a difference and is very much appreciated!
Many employers also offer a corporate matching program and or charitable contributions to causes that matter to you, so you may want to check to see if your employer has that available.
Creative Autism Solutions Team, Inc
CAST approaches autism from the assumption of intelligence and competence of the autistic, nonverbal or non-typical person. It is this assumption that is the basis of success in teaching, educating and sharing with each other.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this mission because it means so much to me.
