Proceeds from Canadian Home Inspections Are Slated to Fund Global Research into Causes, Prevention, Treatments and a Cure for Autism
HALIFAX, N.S. – A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) announced today its partnership with Autism Speaks Canada, an ongoing agreement to provide system-wide support for causes aimed at providing public awareness about autism. A Buyer’s Choice will be associated with Autism Speaks on a year-round basis through a marketing campaign to provide thousands of dollars in resources to help the group further its mission.
“We are committed to raising funds throughout our Canadian home inspection family in order to help Autism Speaks Canada carry out all the incredible work it does,” said Bill Redfern, CEO and founder of A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections. “The work this organization does is near and dear to me and I’m excited that our franchise partners are so willing to help out such a crucial cause.”
This announcement comes on the heels of a recent report from the United States’ Center for Disease Control and Prevention that one in 68 U.S. children have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a 30 percent increase from one in 88 two years ago.
A Buyer’s Choice will be actively working alongside Autism Speaks Canada to both provide ongoing financial support, along with organizing fundraising initiatives that further support the organization. Individual franchise partners across Canada are committing to donating a portion of their home inspections to Autism Speaks.
“A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections demonstrates that they value spreading autism awareness and raising funds for important research and family services as rates of autism increase 15% year over year,” said Jill Farber, Executive Director of Autism Speaks Canada.
Autism is general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders — autism spectrum disorders — caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by communication difficulties, social and behavioural challenges, as well as repetitive behaviors.
