The Midnight Charity Project focuses the generosity of RPG hobby enthusiasts as a force for bringing hope to those in need. This project uses a variety of RPG-related fundraising activities throughout the month of December to bring awareness to a worthy cause.
The project for 2008 directly benefits the Autism Research Institute. Autism is unfortunately becoming more and more common. In the mid 1970s it only struck about 1 in 2,000 births. Today the incidence of babies being born autistic has been reported at 1 in every 150 kids. For more information about Autism and the Autism Research Institute, visit Autism.com. You can also objectively check out the Autism Research Institute’s rating as a charity by visiting their profile in Charity Navigator.
Throughout the month of December, 12 to Midnight will be posting a series of articles about Autism at their website: 12tomidnight.com.
