Our Mission: ACT Today! is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to raise awareness and provide treatment services and support to families to help their children with autism achieve their full potential.
Calling all Kid ACTivists to be photographed by renowned photographer, Mary Ann Halpin.
In honor of April being National Autism Awareness month, we are launching a campaign to raise money and awareness for ACT Today! for autism. The portrait campaign consists of studio portrait sessions of children who are inspired to help kids and families living with autism. A Kid ACTivist is a kid who cares, a kid who has a friend with autism, a kid whose brother or sister has autism, or a kid who has autism themselves.
