  1. Hi Paul,

    Mother Theresa was once asked if she would like to participate in an anti-war rally. She said , “No thank you, but if you are ever holding a pro-peace rally, please invite me.” The oint being that there’s a universal principle that operates like this: “What you resist, persists.” Or, “What you go to war with — you strengthen.”

    In our email to potential donors, we ask them to get enlist in “… the fight against autism… Please join me in my fight…”

    So rather than an anti-autism message, how about a pro-research message?

    A suggestion (which I’ve re-written in my own emails) is a slight re-wording from this:
    Walk Now for Autism Speaks is our chance to make a difference in the fight against autism by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness. Please join me in my fight as I raise money to help fund essential research.

    To this:
    Walk Now for Autism Speaks is our chance to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by autism by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness. Please join me as I raise money to help fund essential research.

    Thank you so much for everything that you’re doing,

  2. Hi Again,

    (Stephanie Roy here – I hit ‘post’ before proofreading : )

    A better re-wording is this:

    Walk Now for Autism Speaks is our chance to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by autism. Please join me as we heighten
    public awareness about autism and raise money to help fund essential research.

    Thanks again,
