The Bush Bunch
My name is Shaelynne Bush, and I am the team leader of the Bush Bunch. Over the past 9 years, our team "The Bush Bunch" has raised over $74,000 for Autism Speaks Canada through our garage sale. This year, my family is hosting our tenth and final annual Garage Sale to support Autism Speaks, on Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th and May 4th and 5th from 8:00am to 2:00pm.
We are asking you as friends and neighbours to let your friends and neighbours know about our sale. This past year we added even more companies that supported our fundraising, including Tim Horton's, The Apple Market, GoodLife, Loblaws, Adhesive Communications and others. If you know of a company that would like to donate items for the sale, or cash donations, please let them know of our fundraising efforts.
Each year our family is so proud to attend the Walk Now for Autism Speaks in Toronto. We are both amazed and saddened as the event continues to grow and we see more and more families/teams joining in to support those affected by Autism. At the walk in 2008, one of the information posters stated that 1 in 110 children would be diagnosed with Autism. The 2017 statistic has dropped to 1 in 68 children, of which 1 in 42 are boys. We are again participating in Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada in Toronto on June 2, 2019. Join my team and I as we walk with our family and friends in our community.
Autism Speaks Canada is part of the world’s largest autism science and advocacy organization dedicated to funding research into the causes, preventions, treatments and cure for autism.
By supporting Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada you are helping change the future for people in the Canadian autism community. If you unable to attend our community garage sale monetary donations to this team page are greatly appreciated!
