Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) has changed lives for many families I know, by changing outcomes for children with autism. I am a parent of a child with autism, and I was so impressed with the work that TACA does in the community that I am now a TACA donor and a contributor to the blog.

TACA is an amazing organization. We started out as confused and upset parents, desperately needing guidance for our diagnosed children. Later, we attended events, and starting donating. Eventually, we've started our own software company to help children on the Autism spectrum, and are now a TACA sponsor. TACA people are THERE FOR YOU to help you get your services and programs on track, to get the best possible outcome for your child. There is so much love and care -- there is no other Autism charity like TACA.

In my role with Community Relations at Oakley, Inc. I have had the privilege of working with TACA for several years now. Initially, we worked with them in an employee engagement capacity. Our employees always loved volunteering with their organization and came back raving about the experience. TACA runs such impactful programs and provides much needed navigation services for families facing autism. They work with such compassion and expertise and have a truely essential impact on the community. The stories of those whose lives have been changed by TACA are countless. If I ever have a child with autism, I will be so glad to know that I can count on TACA. About a year and a half ago, Oakley launched a product collection with proceeds going to TACA. We did this because we felt we were in a unique position to raise awareness of this disease that affects 1 in 91 children. Our employees and athletes were very passionate and we wanted to step up and make a bigger impact. It's been great to see how our support has encouraged others to give and get involved!
