Thanks to Lin Wessels, one of the families from the United States of Autism film, four GOP presidential candidates, one US senator, one Fox News commentator, and thousands of local Iowans had the opportunity to hear and see the great United States of Autism t-shirts! The GOP contenders receiving t-shirts included Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum and Herman Cain. The GOP Senator from Iowa Chuck Grassley also received a t-shirt as well as Fox News Commentator Mike Huckabee.
This was an exciting opportunity for the 2012 election candidates to start becoming aware of autism and the role it will play in the election. We’re also very thankful here at the United States of Autism to have the help of Lin and her family in helping to put this in place. While we can not always be out there at every event, the passion and commitment of all our families can play a key role in moving this film forward. Thanks Lin!
Stay tuned for more in 2012 as our film about the best of America as seen though the eyes of families affected by autism comes out, and the US election comes into focus. Coincidence? It sure seems like somebody might have been planning this all along…
