Whether we realize it or not, we all know someone who has been touched by autism. April is Autism Awareness Month.

John Ondrasik, from Five For Fighting is not only an awesome musician, he does so much for charity. He has founded a website, called “What Kind of World Do You Want?” It allows people to upload videos, speaking out on any issue they wish. Each person who uploads a video can choose one of five charities to benefit. Each time his/her video is viewed, $.04 is given to the charity of their choice.

Autism Speaks is one of the selected charities. You can click here to visit the “World” site and watch some videos, such as this one:
