Kulture City is a non-profit organization that truly cares for the children They understand the issues that the children are going through. They listen to the parents about the needs of their child. They then help the parents to obtain the needed items that will help that child to get through their day, the school day or their night. Which in turn helps the whole family function easier. Kulture City is definitely a God-send. Other organizations should take a good look at themselves then follow in Kulture City's footsteps!

The day the nightmare became a reality.

I am a very active member of the disability community in my area. I work with several families and I help them navigate the system. I also have a child with multiple disabilities. Having a child with a disability has made me hyper aware of her actions and surroundings because simple things become hazards to her. She doesn't stay with me and has wandered out the door when I was simply using the bathroom. These struggles are real. You read about them in the paper and listen to them on the news but it just sounds like words until it really happens. I received a phone call one night from a friend with a child with autism. Her son had made it past 2 security gates and a locked door and made his way outside. He is attracted to water and fell into the family Koi pond. When he was found he was unresponsive. She called me on the way to the hospital screaming in the way only a hurting mother could scream. I met her at the hospital and held her hand all night watching her son as they did procedures and tests and poked and prodded. He was very lucky and has pulled through. He has permanent irreversible damage. I set out the next day to find a way to prevent this. I found http://kulturecity.org/ and their LifeBoks program. LifeBOKS are kits provided to autism families designed to prevent wandering. The kit contains an emergency plan, a QR code patch and shoe tag for first responders to scan for child's information, a Buddy Tag bracelet that children can wear to alert the family when the child goes out of range, and information booklets on autism and wandering. This kit saves lives. We need to get this kit in the hands of every special needs family in the world. I immediately donated to the cause and I will continue to donate monthly until this kit is in the hands of every family with a special needs child. Please help me save lives by giving to this charity.

Why Kulturecity inspires me...
I've never seen an organization that truly cares as much as Kulturecity, they are not simply involved in what they do, they ARE what they do! Every person that is a part of Kulturecity has invested their entire hearts into what they do to help touch the lives of so many families across America. Not only do they help families in a multitude of ways but they also inspire them to make a difference in their own communities. I can honestly say this because not only have I seen it but I to have been inspired by them to reach out in my community to help others. Kulturecity is AUsome!

By Giving I Have Received Blessings Tenfold!
Kulturecity.org (Toys AUcross America) started a little over 2 years ago. I was one of the first several members so have had the priviledge to see the magical transformation that started with 'just a dad mailing trains' grow into a phenomenal act of changing our Autistic kids by giving them voices, offering ways to keep them safe, and as parents, giving us the opportunity to receive support from each other, and since Autism is a Spectrum, there is not a 'one size fits all'...our kids are each unique in their own amazing ways!
Giving to this organization just came natural, and in return I have received so many blessings and grown to love this 'family' Dillon and I belong to! Being Dillon's Guardian and having the support from Kulturecity has been life changing for me and I am forever thankful to Michael Miller and Juilan Maha for being such an inspiration to me!

Kulturecity.org helps autism families in so many ways. They are an organization near and dear to my heart. From giving away iPads to help children with autism find their voice to their LifeBOKS project to help keep children that wander safe and many things in between kulturecity is making a difference. As a parent to three children on the spectrum I can't begin to express how grateful I am for such an amazing organization. We have received help from them and that it why I donate to Kulturecity because it is an organization that I believe in and would stand behind 100%. Kulturecity.org could do so much good in the world of autism if they were to win.

I gave to Kulturecity because I personally have seen the miracles they have done for the autism community and the lives they touch. From the toy given to a child who wonders if anyone else cares, to a weighted blanket given to one that gives them peace to sleep through the night that the family couldn't afford, so the parents can finally rest themselves. Just a sounding board for those that need to know a group exsists that understands the trials it takes raising these blessings and how special each one truly is.

Kulturecity reaches out to so many they bring families hope, smiles, voices, and joy. Many families suffer with lack of ability of communication they bring voices to those children and families making communication possible. Other families suffer sleepless nights due to fear and lack of comfort they provide heart warming weighted blankets providing the much needed help children need and the sleep so many of us parents need to continue the next day. Lastly so many children feel no one understands and cares about them Autism Santa lets these kids know there is someone who understands and cares for them he reaches out and brings a little bit of joy and a smile to there loving faces and a warm smile to the families knowing we are not alone there are others who care, others reaching out to help us others who care and are holding out there hand saying take it and we will guide you. If there is anyone out there who supports us as parents with a child on the autism spectrum it's Kulturecity

'Treat people the way you want to be treated', this is a quote I learned many many years ago from my parents. Little did I know, I would be repeating this same quote day after day to my son, hoping to raise him to be a kind young man who is diagnosed with Autism. Although our family is unique with his special needs, it is non-profits and friends like Kulturecity that have given us so much joy and spread the joy to so many other families like our own. It feels good to give, and to see those that 'get' is even more rewarding. They have an infectious giving theme that just keeps on giving. Whether it be an iPad, a special surprise toy, a fun contest, or just a kind post on their Facebook page, they have shared many smiles across the country. Kulturecity deserves to win this grant, it will benefit many families across the miles.

KultureCity is an amazing place for ASD families to feel welcome. Not only do we all get to chat in social media, but many get to meet in person and feel "normal" for once. The gifts that KultureCity have provided to many families nationwide have been amazing and so well appreciated by all. We all have daily struggles, but just for a moment, the generous gifts give so many people happiness all around. What an uplifting place for ASD families.

I give because I can. I have donated on a few occasions to Kulturecity. They help children and families affected by autism.

I have followed these two groups for a few months now and have been amazed at all of the lives they have touched. They are helping kids with autism to gain confidence and see that they do matter. Not only are they helping the kids but they are also helping the parents. It helps us see that the world is a caring place!

Why I chose to give to Kulturecity!
As a autism family. We had many doors shut in our faces. I signed up through every autism organization I could find for help and not even getting a reply back. Then I was told my son needed an ipad for educational and communication needs. I knew there was no way I could ever afford a ipad. We were told about a brand new autism orgsnization from our home state. We were invited to kulturecity's very first Gala. There they gave out not one but five ipads to kids with autism from multiple states inside the U.S. Three from Alabama, one from Georgia and one fromTexas. I knew right then. They were created to truly help kids with autism. A community of acceptance is truly what they are. They also help teens with autism as well which makes them different than the rest. They stand with us and we stand with them.! They more than deserve to win this contest. Please visit their page. www.kulturecity.org the number of children helped in the short time they have been open speaks for itself.

Yes Garrett, there is a Santa Claus! About three years into the autism diagnosis of my son, I was at a very low place. The first year is filled with shock, denial, grief, and finally acceptance. The second year is a whirlwind of research, and phone calls, advocating and paperwork. By the third year, the emotional realization hits you. Autism is many things. It's a constant challenge. It's exhausting! It's EXPENSIVE! All of that, I expected. What I didn't expect, was that it would be so lonely. Even the family and friends that stick around, really don't get it. You can explain and explain, and unless you live with this thing day in, and day out, you don't get it. Fortunately, around year three, I stumbled across a post that was about Autism Santa. A dad, with a son on the spectrum, that wanted to give gifts to children on the spectrum. I was immediately intrigued. So, I joined a group that supported him. Through this group, I met lots of autism parents. Parents like me. Parents that GOT me. That understood my challenges, but more importantly, my triumphs! Autism Santa sent my son a gift. Just because. A spongebob flashlight. My son was so happy. He got mail. It was so much more than a flashlight! It was a lifeline. It was a community! A community where we were accepted. With all of our struggles and challenges, we were accepted. That single gesture, renewed my hope! I could face the struggles. Things were not so overwhelming that I would just sit and cry. I learned with time, that Autism Santa was just one piece of KultureCity. A nonprofit that supports the autism community. They provide immediate needs for families, as well as advocating for and executing initiatives that promote inclusion and acceptance for all autistic people. Through KultureCity, I have met the most amazing, fierce, giving people I've ever known. It is community helping community. It is family! I have supported many of KultureCity's projects. Wizard Talk, that provides Ipads to children, so they can have a voice. Toys Aucross America, that provide toys to children on the spectrum. The LifeBOKS program that provides lifesaving tools to wandering children. Why do I give? Because KultureCity gave me hope, when I needed it the most. Because KultureCity is a family, and that's what families do!
