International AAC Awareness Month - October 201

Power of Communication Relays:
I am Faye Warren, the chairman of people who use communication devices for the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (ISAAC). One of my duties is to organize the 2011 and 2012 International AAC Awareness Month task force in the United States. We are focused on raising the awareness of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and to inform the public about the many ways in which people may communicate using communication devices.

We would like to organize relays in cities nationwide to help spread awareness of multimodal communication in adults and children with disabilities. The name of relay is The Power of Communication. This event will take place every October starting in 2011. The relays will be held at a high school or college tracks and the money raised will go to local organizations to help support awareness of AAC.

Would you be interested in sponsoring our cause by donating your time, financial assistance, or snacks and beverages? It would help the enhancement of personal life skills through communication devices by supporting access to inclusive early education for children, and families with disabilities in a world of possibilities. In addition to helping the AAC community, it will also help and enhance your business or organization locally and nationwide.
I would really appreciate this so much. I will look forward to hearing from you. Please pass or copy and paste this message to everybody to whom you know especially to the companies and organizations to whom you think would be interested in sponsoring us and provide us with volunteers.
