Got A Dollar? Drop Some Love: You can help a family with austistic children

I ran across this site today that has an incredible idea!  They spotlight one person in need each month and then ask anyone who feels compelled to give $1.00 or more.  At the end of the month, they bless the person in need with whatever was raised.
This month's family deals with autism.  Many homeschoolers do so because a child has austism.  So, this is a story that may hit close to home.  Read about this month's need and see how you can help with nothing more than one dollar:
Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people who unite as a community to make a difference in the lives of one person or family a month. By giving just $1.00, they make it easy for their members to change lives in a fun and super easy way.
At the end of every month, Nate and J$ show up in the town the families live in and present them with everything the team raised -- all the money, the gifts, whatever the community helped get. It's all on film, and it all ends with us making a difference! (And then it starts all over again the next month)
This month we are coming together for 2 beautiful kids with severe autism -- Ethan & Alex. Our goal is to raise $13,000 on behalf of 4 Paws for Ability so that we can place a highly trained service dog with their family (the dog is completely free, but the training that goes into it is very very expensive). And if possible, three iPads so they can all communicate better with each other (Alex is completely non-verbal). Here are 3 ways you can help:
  1. Join the team - This is the best way to help out, and all it takes is $1.00.
  2. Join our blogger network - Blog about our Love Drops each month like I am :) It's easy, it's rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps our families). Love Drop will give you all the content you need.
  3. Give a gift or provide a service - Gift cards to Target, iTunes, Wal-mart, etc would be great! As well as other items or services you think could help out. (Some people even make home-made items, we like creativity!)
