Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
My name is Amal Ali, and this year, 2012, I have decided to fundraise money for the Autism Society. This idea came to me all because of my fun-loving brother, Daanish Ali. He has autism, and I am determined to help my own brother and also others who've have this disability. My uncle, Dr. S. Adil Husain, who is coming from Texas to help me and Daanish, will be running in the race for me. We are a team, and together we want to raise money for the Autism Society of Central Virginia, which does so much for my brother and my family.
My mom goes to meetings at the Autism Society, and she learns about things that will help my brother. We all go to events held by the Autism Society, and those are fun things that Daanish and the whole family can do together. That's why I want to help raise money for this group.
I won't agree for my brother to grow up with autism and deal with it if someone gives me those choices. It just doesn't agree with my heart. When my family is doing something special without my brother, it's because of autism, and it isn't as fun at it would've been. For example, when my family travelled to Istanbul and had to leave Daanish behind, I felt so sad - I cried. But I didn't show it! I cried inside of me. For an easier way to say it out loud, it was a hole in the middle of my dear heart. I declare that everyone who has autism must be helped, and we can fix it with our own hearts. Give lots of love to those who have this disabilty of autism, and always have your heart full of hope to help. That is what I say!
