What Do Autism and a Mullet Have in Common?

This morning’s riddle – what do autism and a mullet have in common?

Adrien and Aaron are eight-year-old twins; Adrien is nonverbal and has autism. Since age four, Aaron has donated “every penny he has received” to Autism Speaks, starting with change he found on the ground. He is now taking his fundraising capabilities to a new level. He is going to shave his head the second week of October and is accepting donations. He hopes to raise $200.

(Here’s where a great story becomes even better.)

Their Uncle Virgil (pictured here) has offered to cut off his beloved 16-year-old mullet, IF Aaron is able to reach $5,000 in donations for Autism Speaks. And, he will donate his lovely locks to a worthy organization like Locks of Love.

In my opinion, everyone wins. Donate to Hairs To Adrien For Autism, benefiting Autism Speaks. Even one dollar will help. Check out his Facebook page and be sure to share it. And be sure to thank Aaron and Uncle Virgil for their efforts!

    Hi my name is Amanda I have twin son that are 5 and two little girls that are 4 and 2. One of my twin sons has autism and I would not trade him for any thing. We learn from one anther. I’ve learn that some of the most special things in live that you can learn is from a child with autism. People in the world today judge to much about how people look how much money you have were you’re from ect. But a child with autism look at life in a whole new way they love you no matter what. You can go to a store and act like a child your self and they love it. Some of my favor it times in live is when I’m with him. He don’t need to say a word his face say a million. Weather it something funny are sad. And I love to hear him talk. He didn’t talk in till he was almost 4. But when he started he picked up on it fast. And when we go for car rids we have a thing were we look for county car washes and he loves it. And the best way to get a child with autism to talk is to go to there world look at thing like them and talk about what they love and love to do that has o ways got my son to talk.
