Mission: The Drive for Rebecca is an ongoing effort to raise funds for research, to help start new schools, and to increase awareness of autism.In our first year, $60,000 of donations were specifically directed by donors toward helping to establish a new school for children with autism called REED Academy. A percentage of all proceeds continue to support REED Academy as well as a number of organizations to advance medical and educational research. 75% of the net proceeds are making a dramatic difference for individuals with autism today. Your funds will help support breakthrough educational research through some of the most renowned educational programs, with the goal of disseminating their collective knowledge throughout North America and around the world. 25% of the net proceeds are helping to advance groundbreaking research efforts through Cure Autism Now and The Organization for Autism Research, bringing us closer to finding the cause, appropriate treatments and a cure.
