(June 4, 2014) - MyJobChart.com Founder and CEO Gregg Murset announced this morning that Autism Speaks will become the newest featured charity for members of the fastest growing online jobs and rewards website for kids.
Starting immediately, individuals signed up will be able to complete their assigned jobs on MyJobChart.com and make the decision to donate to Autism Speaks. Additionally, parents or grandparents can choose to match the donation by using the MJC donation portal. MyJobChart.com will make an additional donation to Autism Speaks for each new member that enrolls through this link as a way to give back and support such a worthy cause.
“I have personally heard from many parents of children with autism who have been using our free service to provide much needed structure for their son or daughter,” noted Murset. “As a Father of six, I want to do all I can to help other families who are dealing with this disorder. Autism Speaks is doing tremendous work leading the fight against autism and I hope the MJC kids and parents will join in and support them regularly.”
“Autism Speaks is excited to partner with MyJobChart.com and proud to be one of the company’s featured charities,” said Lisa Goring, Autism Speaks executive vice president of programs and services. “We are confident that the site will serve as a great tool in helping to motivate individuals with autism of all ages, while increasing their independence and teaching them the important life skills of hard work and money management.”
Money raised from the partnership will go toward the Autism Speaks iPad grant program that provides iPads to financially disadvantaged individuals with autism who have challenges communicating.
