It is very hard for some kids to understand how challenging the face to face can be for a person on the spectrum. I think this touches on what I have seen H experience and he has typed about this as well.
I can’t wait to hear what he and other autistics think about this video. It’s also very cool thing that the autistic person is a girl, which you don’t see a lot in the mainstream conversation about autism.
This is the first I have heard about The Jubilee Project; I really love their site and their message. Their 12 Days of Kindness #12DOK is pretty close to perfect and their message that #DoingGoodIsContagious is one we wholeheartedly believe in. Check them out and let us know what you think.
Fireflies was inspired by Taylor Swift ‘s You Belong to Me video and they want everyone to tweet Taylor so she can spread the word about autism acceptance. Here is their message regarding the Tweet Taylor Campaign.
“1. The “Tweet Taylor Campaign”
Did you know that “Fireflies” was inspired by Taylor Swift’s “You Belong with Me” music video? Can you imagine what would happen if Taylor Swift watched and tweeted about “Fireflies” to her 21 million followers? We need your help to make this happen!
After watching “Fireflies” tweet a message at Taylor like this one:
Hey @taylorswift13 we need your help! Please watch & tweet short film #Fireflies for #Autism awareness! http://bit.ly/JPFireflies
Make sure you include the link to the video, and hashtags #Fireflies and #autism. Donate one tweet a day from this Wednesday to Saturday (Dec 19th-22nd), to ask Taylor to help raise awareness for this important cause. With all of us working together, we are sure to catch her attention! Let’s help 21 million people around the world learn about #autism! ”
