How could I fundraise?

Ask for donations on your Birthday

Many people set up Facebook fundraisers and for donations for their birthdays. You can easily set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook and share your story with friends and family. Maybe fundraise instead of presents, to make lasting change for all autistic people.
