A note from Dakota Fanning
Did you know that approximately one percent of the world population has autism spectrum disorder? With almost 1 in 68 individuals affected, autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the US. In my new film, Please Stand By, I play a young woman with autism who runs away from her caregiver in an attempt to submit her manuscript to a Star Trek writing competition. I’m so proud of this film and for giving characters with this disability such a strong, powerful voice. Now I’m raising money to help people living with autism and I want to ask for your support.
For only a minimum donation of $10, you’ll be entered to win a trip to NYC to attend a screening of Please Stand By with me on World Autism Awareness Day, April 5! You’ll get VIP tickets to the screening and we’ll hang out. And don’t worry about your airfare and hotel—we've got those covered. Your donation to The Miracle Project supports this amazing organization that uses theater and expressive arts programs to help individuals with autism and other disabilities. If you donate more, you’ll earn more chances to win!
Thanks for your generosity! I look forward to seeing one of you in New York!
About The Miracle Project
The Miracle Project is a fully inclusive theatre, film, and expressive arts program for children, teens, and adults with autism and all abilities. Using groundbreaking and evidence-based methods, originally developed by founder Elaine Hall, The Miracle Project focuses on the strengths and abilities inherent in its participants, providing tools to build communication, social skills, job skills, and friendships while developing a unique neurodiverse community.
Through shared experiences with peers, individuals with autism and other disabilities find their voice, develop their talents, create original musicals, and rehearse for life. Participants once too frightened to even walk into a room of their peers, have now performed live in front of standing room only audiences at places such as Carnegie Hall, The White House, Lincoln Center, and The United Nations. Miracle Project participants have also been featured on the hit TV shows Parenthood, Speechless, The Good Doctor, and most recently in the film Please Stand By!
The staff of The Miracle Project, which is a program of the nonprofit Project Miracles, offers trainings, summer camps, and professional development workshops nationally and internationally and at universities across the globe. Profiled in the two time Emmy Award-winning HBO film, “Autism: The Musical” The Miracle Project is lauded for changing the way audiences perceive autism.
