Michael David CopleyHey Everyone, what's Up and How's it Going? "Want to join me in supporting a good cause? I'm raising money for Autism Empowerment and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. I've included information about Autism Empowerment below." Wow, hopefully Everything works Out for Better: Autism Empowerment is dedicated to enriching and empowering the lives of children, teens, adults and families within the Autism and Asperger community. "I've gone Northwest Gospel seventeen Years, had No Chance to Visit recently . . . Invited my Best friend Justen Martian, who's Media leading Citizens Youth group . . . Ten years Ago my Life's ruined, They could've Been more Involved Church?!?" The vision we work toward is an inclusive society that accepts and respects all youth and adults on the autism spectrum and empowers each person to reach his or her highest potential. Oh, and Of course They're defaming Me: "I've had ADHDS (Asperger's attention Deficit Hyperkinetic activity Disorder syndrome) without Knowing before, the Church slanders I'm threatening Terrorism?!? Well they 'Must' listen to Gossip, rumors and Speculation about my Past . . . lying I threatened Church with Bomb, they've turned 'Everyone' kicking me Out!" We offer innovative and inspiring programs, training, and support services. We also offer opportunities for leadership and volunteerism for those within and supporting the Autism and Asperger community. "Yeah, the Church's discriminating Against my Life . . . Well thank You usually Nobody believes, They're my Only volunteer Work experience!" Wow, can't Wait for Autism Empowerment's fundraiser: Game-O-Rama event "VOLUNTEERS Needed"?!? Our work is guided by Four Foundational Pillars of Positivity: Accept, Enrich, Inspire and Empower. "Oh, sorry I'm 'justen' Time-sharing my Testimony . . . thanks Again for Listening to Me, Autism's 'social' Justice: Full Spectrum Warriors?!?" Well now "Everyone" knows What happened, if Only we Knew back Then: Accept – We strongly promote the unconditional acceptance of those on the autism spectrum. Our definition of acceptance includes self-acceptance and social acceptance. By accepting each spectrum traveler for who they are, where they are in the present moment, we are promoting both autism acceptance and autism awareness in a positive and respectful way. "Wow, but Someone else Would've committed Suicide . . . In my 'Situation' without God's help, and Of course I'm being Serious! Well sorry That's the 'Full' story, I've been Diagnosed with Autism’s ADHDS (Asperger's attention Deficit Hyperkinetic activity Disorder syndrome) . . .” Wow, if Only I could Express myself . . . Too bad I'm a “Perfectionist” though, apparently I can’t Do anything Right?!? Enrich – Our goal is to provide educational resources, programs and tools to improve and enhance life skills for those on the autism spectrum as well as their families, caregivers, therapists and teachers. We aspire to make life more meaningful and rewarding. Well of Course I'm mentally “Retarded”, but No one Realized until Now: “Wow, sorry I've tried 'Writing' but Calling . . . Autism’s social Justice: Full Spectrum Warriors, like 'Social Justice Warriors' but Good!” Inspire – We dedicate ourselves to being a positive and uplifting organization that encourages, promotes and celebrates success in all individuals. We believe each person on the autism spectrum has the potential to make a positive difference in this world. Well then I'm suing Northwest Gospel, for “Ableistic (Anapirophobia/Anapirism) discrimination Hate defaming Slander” . . . “Wow, they're Enabling my Abusers protecting Them . . . hopefully ‘This’ never Happens to Them, they've No idea What it's Like?!?” Empower – We strive to empower individuals on the autism spectrum to achieve their highest quality of life academically, emotionally, financially, socially and spiritually. No, actually I'm supporting People against "Them": “Well of Course it's About them, I'm sorry You thought ‘Good bye’ . . . sorry You're my Only hope Now, thanks We both ‘Understand’ each Other!” Yes, thanks We're all Children of God . . . “You will find us collaborating with and supporting other autism and cross-disability related organizations locally, nationally and worldwide. We also work with people, businesses and organizations that are not autism-specific so that we may help others understand the strengths and challenges in daily life for individuals on the autism spectrum.” Please and Thank you God bless?!?
