Open Mic For Autism
"Open Mic for Autism" is a compilation album that benefits the FEAT Foundation in BC (Families for Early Autism Treatment) and it is scheduled for released on Christmas, 2008. The purpose of the album is to promote awareness for the condition of Autism Spectrum Disorder, and to provide resources out there for parents who may have children with autism. 50% of the sales proceeds will go towards FEAT, and the remaining funds will go towards a benefit concert where all ticket sales will go towards helping children with autism. The concert will extend itself into an ongoing open mic event that will allow individuals with disabilities to share their art and personal experiences with the rest of the world.
