On behalf of Joe and Linda at

Below is the email we've sent to our family and friends about "Hot Rock for Autism" charity project. As people associated with the world of hot & spicy food, we are asking for your help. Please try to spread the word about this event. If you have a blog, please post it and let everyone know about it. Forward this email to everyone you know who might be interested. The Autism Society of America will be giving it some PR on their website, but the more we have from people like you...the better chance we have of this project being a huge success and raising lots of money to donate to such a worthwhile cause.

Hello again,

We'd like to draw your attention to a fundraiser we are beginning today on our hot-n-spicy website, The Hot Zone Online, Blog: If you're not interested in the auctions, which we're pretty sure most of you will not be, please visit our First Giving site and consider donating to a good cause:

Some of you may or may not know that on February 22 of this year, Ari was diagnosed with Autism. If you would like you can read more about that whole process here:

We think that many people have an outdated idea of what autism is, but it's important to note that autism is a spectrum disorder that affects each person differently and to different degrees. Ari has autism and we love him for his strengths and weaknesses. Like any other child, we strive to maximize his strengths and minimize his weaknesses. Sometimes we succeed. Sometimes we fail. We're human. No matter what, though, we love him very much and hope to see him live a very full life.

Again, please consider a contribution.

Linda & Joe
