Happy Autism Love and Acceptance Day, everyone!
We hope that you are all doing great and that you feel unconditional love in your heart. Just a little bit of love can change the world and if we were all able to love unconditionally every day the world would certainly be a better place.
Here are the winners of this year’s awards. Usually there are only 3 winners a year for this award, but this year is our first year and we decided to double the awards, so we have six winners! This was not a competition (as we said some time ago) because we don’t like competitions and we would like to reassure you that every single person in the autism hall of fame is absolutely brilliant. However we have this annual award because some excitement is definitely positive and motivating (other organizations also confer awards on this day). While this particular award can only be won once, we might have other awards in the future. The winners will be added to an alphabetical list with the year they won next to their names.
So… this year’s winners are two fabulous children (with fabulous achievements for any age) and four fabulous adults.
The children are (in alphabetical order)
Iris Grace Halmshaw (UK) and
Jacob Velazquez (USA).
The adults are (again in alphabetical order)
Marie Faverio (Australia)
Laura Nadine (USA)
Colleen Ranney (Canada) and
Mark C. Westberg (USA).
Congratulations to all! The winners will also be notified by email within 24 hours and will receive a certificate they can print out.
Happy Autism Love and Acceptance Day (and Month) again! And don’t forget to love every day, not only today.
PS: We saw some art with delightful pastel colors on Marie’s website that we thought would be wonderful for our banner this month, so we asked her manager for permission to use it and for a high-resolution copy, then we added some text and just uploaded it! It will be our banner until the end of the month.
After April you can still enjoy it here:
Love to you-all from the whole Autism Hall of Fame Team
