My name is Richard and this is my son Paul. Paul is autistic. I collect disability due to arthiritis in my feet. Paul and I manage to make ends meet on our disability checks, but there is nothing left for the little "extras" a Dad likes to give his Son. We are lucky if we get to play putt-putt golf 4 or 5 times a year. Paul has a hard time making friends. One of his best friends is his cousin Chase, who lives in Clearwater, Florida. (We live in Ohio) Paul often asks if we can go visit Chase and I always put him off with the usual Parent answer. "Sure we can Buddy, 'Someday'"....I have been saying "someday" for over 8 years now. I want to take Paul to Florida to see his "best friend" Chase.....and while we are there I would like to take them both to Disney World. I think I could accomplish this with the $3000.00 I am asking for. I desire nothing for myself, but I want to give something special to my beautiful autistic Son!! If you find it in your heart to help, I will send you pictures so that you may see the joy you helped create.
