Spare Some for Autism was founded in Raleigh, NC, by a local CEO and mother of an autistic daughter, Beth Jarvis. Very familiar with giving back to her community, working with celebrities, and running a highly successful charity event, as the founder and former Tournament Director of the Jimmy V Celebrity Junior Golf Classic, Beth decided it was time to turn her attention to a cause that hits a little closer to home…
Nine years ago, Beth’s daughter, Cameron, was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As a twin, Cameron was always a few steps behind her sister, Carly, and even though the mental and physical gap has lessened over the years through special attention and training, the differences are still apparent. Determined to get some answers, Spare Some for Autism is the result of Cameron’s loving spirit, Beth’s will to provide a better life for her daughter and other children with autism, and the entire autism advocacy community’s journey to provide answers and, ultimately, a cure, for this devastating disorder.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are dedicated to funding programs that will directly impact the individuals that suffer from ASD and allow them to achieve their highest level of independence within their home, school, and community, all while gaining respect and support for themselves.
Spare Some for Autism also seeks to support families affected by ASD by educating them on such topics as literacy and coping with disabilities so that families will be better prepared to support each other.
Spare some time… spare some love… spare some hope.
