FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Bethesda, MD) – May 11, 2011 The Autism Society is partnering with Autisable, an online blog community that connects individuals whose lives are affected by autism. Starting today, all those who have blogs hosted by the Xanga network, which hosts www.Autisable.com, may join a new Autism Society group to connect with other supporters of the oldest and largest grassroots autism organization in the country.
“In this partnership with Autisable, the Autism Society looks forward to an additional venue to share credible information and news, and to strengthen its online relationship with individuals on the autism spectrum, family members, advocates and professionals that serve the autism community,” said Scott Badesch, interim President and CEO of the Autism Society. “In addition, partnering with Autisable is a way for the Autism Society to expand its commitment to bringing people together and giving them the resources to help one another, which is a service provided by the organization’s strong chapter network.”
In an effort to support the autism community, Autisable is connecting with organizations that help families living with autism spectrum disorders. The Autism Society is proud to be the first such organization. As a part of this connection, Autisable is currently donating 10 percent of its profit to the Autism Society.
“We are honored to work with the Autism Society by providing an online community platform for those who are tackling the puzzle of autism every day,” said Joel Manzer, Lead Editor of Autisable. “Through Autisable’s partnership with the Autism Society, individuals will now have an opportunity to give back to the community by simply sharing their journey and their voice.”
