Help Chevy Help Autism

From the Fbodfather:

Good morning, Camaro Comrades and Firebird Friends --

April is Autism Awareness Month – and Chevrolet is both proud and honored to partner with “Autism Speaks” to help create awareness of autism and the effects it has on our families.

Did you know that Autism is more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes and AIDS -- COMBINED??
It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike in boys than girls.
A new case of autism is diagnosed every 20 minutes!! How can you help?

Simply go to -- and then click on the “Help Chevy Help Autism” banner. Once you do you can then click on “play video” button and receive a quick overview of the New Chevy Malibu. Every time another person watches the video, Chevrolet will make another contribution to “Autism Speaks”

…..and for your time, you’ll receive a free 30-day trial of XM Radio Online…..

Please share with your Club Members, Family, and Friends. Let's show the world that once again, the Camaro/Firebird Community cares.....

It’s one small click that can make a big difference for Autism.


DETROIT – Autism Speaks and Chevrolet today announced a month-long promotion to help generate up to $1 million for the non-profit organization and create greater awareness of autism, a disorder that is now diagnosed in one in every 150 children.

During April – Autism Awareness Month – people who go to the Autism Speaks website (, can click on the “Help Chevy Help Autism” icon and take a free virtual test drive of the 2008 North American Car of the Year – the all-new Chevy Malibu. Chevrolet has committed to a minimum contribution of $500,000, but e very virtual test drive taken gets Chevrolet closer to its goal of donating up to $1 million to Autism Speaks to support its mission of increasing awareness of autism and raising money to fund autism research. Those who participate in the virtual test drive will be offered a free 30-day online trial of XM Satellite Radio.

“Chevrolet is making a remarkable commitment to helping the millions of families across America affected by autism,” said Mark Roithmayr, Autism Speaks president. “The money raised during this campaign will fund important research focused on finding the answers our families desperately seek. In addition, by bringing our message of autism awareness to a new and expanded audience, Chevrolet and General Motors are contributing to a greater sense of understanding and compassion about this disorder.”
Autism, a complex neurobiological disorder that is more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined, impairs a person’s ability to communicate and relate to others. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike in boys than girls. A new case of autism is diagnosed every 20 minutes.

“The Chevrolet and General Motors families have a long history of giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” said Mark LaNeve, North America vice president of vehicle sales, service and marketing. “We are proud to join with Autism Speaks, the largest national organization dedicated to awareness, advocacy and finding effective treatments for autism. This is a great opportunity for us to provide consumers the opportunity to engage in the Chevy Malibu, and at the same time, help Chevy help autism.”

In addition to accessing the virtual test drive through, consumers may access the “Help Chevy Help Autism” icon to take a virtual test drive during April via the General Motors website (, the Chevrolet website (, the XM Satellite Radio website (, the OnStar website ( and nearly 4,000 Chevrolet dealer websites.

About Autism
Autism is a complex brain disorder that inhibits a person's ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by extreme behavioral challenges. Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed in one in 150 children in the United States, affecting four times as many boys as girls. The diagnosis of autism has increased tenfold in the last decade. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have called autism a national public health crisis whose cause and cure remain unknown.

About Autism Speaks Autism Speaks is dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders, to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, and to advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. It was founded in February 2005 by Suzanne and Bob Wright, the grandparents of a child with autism. Bob Wright is Vice Chairman, General Electric, and served as chief executive officer of NBC for more than twenty years. To learn more about Autism Speaks, please visit
I, too, urge you to go to take part. What do you have to lose? A few minutes of looking at a friggen' awesome car, and free XM radio. Do it!!
