“It definitely spoke out to us,” says Chris Wall when asked why his class group chose to raise money for the Arts for Autism Foundation, https://www.autismspeaks.org, as a class project. “My son has autism so it’s definitely a mission of mine.”

Mariah Carmichael, Chris Spayde, Ryan Zimmerman, Chris Wall, and Brittany Baker are all students at The Art Institute of Indianapolis. Ai students who donated $3 to the foundation received a t-shirt to tie dye. The group was able to sell 43 shirts which raised $220. On top of that, The Heritage Group, http://www.thginfo.com, donated $1000. Brittany Baker, whose family owns The Heritage Group, said close friends of her family have autism.
