Help Amy Sequenzia Get to TASH

Crowd-sourced Campaign to Get Amy to TASH


Amy Sequenzia has a personal campaign on Fundrazr (similar to Kickstarter) to raise money to get to the TASH conference in Washington D.C. in December.

The campaign ends on November 30th. She's looking to raise $3000. Of the tens of thousands of supporters to Pages such as AWN, this should be an easy goal to meet if a large number of people contribute a little bit each.

From the campaign page:

My name is Amy, I am a non-speaking Autistic activist and blogger, and I have a chance to present at TASH Conference in December, in Washington, DC.
Some of you already know me and know that I need to travel with a support person. Last year I was able to present at a different conference because you helped me get there. It was awesome!...
