The Elizabeth Richardson Center (ERC) is proud to announce that we will be participating in this year's #GivingTuesday global campaign. On November 29th, after all of your holiday shopping, we are asking for you to reflect and think how you can help those who might have less.
#GivingTuesday unifies charities, corporations, small businesses, and individuals from across the globe to show that the world gives as good as it gets. Last year alone over $116 million was raised worldwide on #GivingTuesday.
This year, with your help ERC is planning on opening the first classroom specialized for children with autism. This classroom will be the first of its kind offered by a disability service provider in Northwest Arkansas. With the number of autism diagnosis increasing each year, ERC felt that a classroom dedicated to this disorder was something not only missing in NWA, but needed.
Take a look at how you can help make this classroom a reality for those who do not have the resources to get the special care they might need.
