Corporate Giving Can Give Back Two-Fold

September 03, 2008

Karen Barbarics, Chair of the

Lehigh Valley Walk Now for Autism,

has created a video entitled “Possibilities” detailing Gap employees' volunteerism, as part of The Gap's “Be the Change” video competition. Voting is open from now through Saturday, September 6th – so log in now and vote. The winning organization will receive $10,000! You may vote once every 24-hour period.

Cast your vote now.

This Gap contest is just one of many creative ways that volunteers can engage their employers in supporting Autism Speaks. Employers want to support causes for which their employees are passionate.

Consider asking your employer to support Autism Speaks. Here are some ways:

  • Be a corporate sponsor of Walk Now for Autism or one of our events
  • Form a corporate team for Walk Now for Autism
