Beading to Beat Autism

Merry Meet :))

Every once in awhile I happen across a cause that I can't help but just support.  This is one of those causes.  The story about what this little girl has done for her little brother is heartwarming to say the least.  If you get a moment please read the story, check out the website and if so inclined see if you can help.  They have a lot of beautiful bracelets that you can get for just $3.00.  Let's help to show this little girl that her ambition to help her brother and pure heart will pay off.  I know I am ;)  There are all sorts of options to help from making the bracelets to purchasing them.  Thank you in advance to those of you who stop by the page and help out.

Love and Blessings

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE!!!

Her youngest brother, Evan, has autism. In February 2006, Evan began receiving IV infusions of an amino acid called Glutathione. Evan was the first Glutathione IV patient at Kosair Childrens Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky. He gets these IV’s every week and they have been very helpful in Evan’s battle to overcome autism. Evan responded so well to this medical treatment that Kosair physicians decided they wanted to do a medical study using the same IV protocol on more kids with autism, but they didn’t have the money to do it. Even though Evan was already getting this very helpful therapy, Michala wanted other kids battling autism to be able to get these IV’s as well. She gave her mother $7.35 and said. “It’s not enough but you can have it for the study.” She continued, “I’m going to make more bracelets and I’m going to raise that money.” Michala believed that thousands of beaded bracelets would raise the $200,000.00that Kosair needed to conduct the study. Michala, full of faith and ambition was ready to take on the challenge and raise the needed funds one bead and one bracelet at a time! When Michala was confronted by doubters that didn’t think she could raise such a large amount of money, the 10-year old athlete in her would boldly reply, “If you go into a game thinking you’re gonna lose, it’s game over- you’ve lost- YOU GOTTA BELIEVE!!!” Michala recruited volunteers she affectionately called her “ Peeps” to help bead and distribute thousands of bracelets at local art shows and community events. Armed with her “You Gotta Believe” Motto and unwavering faith, Michala’s initial donation of $7.35 and relentless hard work, reaped a harvest of astounding proportions. God honored her faith and hard work as Michala and her Peeps not only met but, exceeded their goal. People nationwide heard about Michala’s dedication and success through her appearances on “Good Morning America” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Within six short months she shocked the nation by raising nearly $300,000.00 for the study and put autism on the country’s radar screen.  A half-million dollars later, she is on a new mission to bring Autism Awareness to even greater levels and build the most comprehensive Autism Research and Treatment Center in the world. The price tag- $300 Million dollars! – and she has a three-year plan to get it done!!!
