Review for Geek Club Books Inc, Emerald Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My story begins with a boy who looks like any other boy, but his brain is wired differently. He is autistic. The kids at school think he's weird so they bully and isolate him. This was my son's story but it's a universal experience when you are on the autism spectrum. Stigmatized and misunderstood, most grow up without an opportunity to reach their fullest potentials.

I started Geek Club Books a unique nonprofit to change how the world views autism and empower those on the autism spectrum. We use pop culture and technology to entertain, engage and educate the public. My husband and I donate all admin costs and I take no salary so every dollar donated goes directly towards our programs and paying our autistic team. I will do whatever I can to make sure people with autism know that they are valued and they matter.
