Some of you will already know that my son, Mini-MaFt, is autistic - if you didn't then you do now!

The 27th March to 2nd April 2015 is World Autism Awareness Week and to celebrate I'm going to do a (tandem) sky dive to raise money for the National Autistic Society (NAS) who are a national charity that provide support and resources for families and individuals around the UK.

I'm hoping to raise 500 for them with this jump and it would be great if you could spare a few quids to help me reach that target.

I hate heights, so I'm already petrified at the thought of this - I did a jump about 4 years ago and I can't understand why I'm doing it again. I think some of it is that I can't see the point in asking for sponsorship for something that comes easily, another part is that Mini-MaFt (and likely every other person on the autistic spectrum) struggles with day to day life so why shouldn't I struggle to help them? However, the main part is that I'm an idiot...

Anyway, here's a link with a bit of info and how you can donate.

Thanks in advance!

MaFt

PS - the jump has been confirmed for 30th March

Sorry to hear about Mini-MaFt's autism. NAS is a wonderful charity, deserving of everyone's support.

Good luck with the jump, and I trust you'll comply with the conditions for half of my donation! Wink

Hey MaFt, I've only just realised that your jump was over two weeks ago! Embarassed

How did it go? Presumably there are photos/video?

Great to see that you've raised nearly 800 including the Gift Aid for a really worthy cause. Well done. Clap
