Kindness Ruled in April
Nearly 1,000 registered ambassadors and hundreds of school districts across the state encouraged people throughout New Jersey to Choose Kindness in April, National Autism Month. In previous years, we have been extremely impressed by the dedication and energy of our ambassadors, and 2019 was no exception.

With the support of our ambassador fundraisers, combined with our generous sponsors, the 2019 Ambassador Program raised nearly $150,000!
