Help Autisitc Children

Stengthen the Good is highlighting its second charity; The Brent Woodall Foundation For Exceptional Children

Brent Woodall was one of those who lost their lives in the world trade center on 9/11. At the time his wife Tracy was five weeks pregnant. Their child was born on April 22nd 2002. In his memory Tracy started a charity to provide free-care giving education to families of autistic children. Tracy and Brent had talked about starting such a charity prior to his death.

For those who have been long term readers of my blog, you know that I have more than a passing interest in autistic children. The child I took care of for about 6 months is autistic. The toll on the family is great; this is a wonderful way to honor the memory of her husband---helping those who must shoulder the burden of care, and thus helping their children. This help can make a great difference in the lives of the children and their families.

You may read more about the charity here.
