A Letter From Our Philanthropy Vice President
My name is Morgan and I am the Philanthropy Vice President of the Theta Eta Chapter. Autism Speaks is a very important organization for Alpha Xi Delta. Our mission is to spread understanding and acceptance of individuals with autism. All funds raised for Autism Speaks is delegated to individuals with autism and their families for advocacy and support. Autism Speaks is NOT looking for a cure; we believe that Autism is different not less. Our work is to spread understanding of what autism really is and to spread the word that being different and unique does not mean less. We do this in fun and enjoyable events open to anyone on campus. In the past, we have challenged fellow Western Michigan students to participate in our Football Frenxi Tournament and in the spring we look for our Xi Man in a male pageant to help fundraise for Autism Speaks. My Chapter and I are proud to work alongside Autism Speaks to help with some of the obstacles a family or a person might face affected by autism and we are ready to make a difference.
