Talk About Curing Autism
Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism. For families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments. TACA helps to strengthen the autism community by connecting families and the professionals who can help them, allowing them to share stories and information to help improve the quality of life for people with autism.
The Environmental Defense Fund was founded in 1967 and tackles the most serious environmental problems with a commitment to sound science, efficient and market-based solutions, the power of unlikely partnerships, and smart non-partisan policy.
And they do not accept money from our corporate partners. The environment is their only client.
Unlike many charities that do many different things, The Smile Train mission is focused on solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate.
Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly. Aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. And face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache.
The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with surgery that costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
Smile Train is focused on providing free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries and free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals.Until there are no more children who need help and we have completely eradicated the problem of clefts.
