Due to Covid-19, AIM annual fundraising Toonie 4 Autism Campaign that we usually held with our community and business partners in April and May of each year was cancelled because of the lock down. Toonie 4 Autism is an annual event where we bring awareness to our communities and to raise much needed fund for our subsidized program like AIM without Limit Subsidized Therapy Program. This program was designed to help those families gain access to affordable one-to-one therapy for 12 months (with 50-60 hours of therapy per month) at a subsidy rate while they are waiting for government funding. Many children have benefited through the 9000+ subsidized IBI hours that this program has provided. This year, we are forced to delay our originally planned application in April 2020 for families to apply to this program because we couldn't raise fund in April.
This program existence rely solely on the generosity of supporters in our communities. While we cannot run face-to-face fundraising event like we traditionally do, we cannot let Covid-19 stop us raising funds to continue giving these critical service to children with autism who are waiting for help. Please give generously so that we can continue our application process to give much needed help to these children.
