A little while ago I put the word out there on Twitter that I was in need of some assistance and wanted to start a Feature Friday post for awesome Canadians here on my blog.

Debbie was one of the bloggers that reached out to me in my time of need. Thanks Debbie for all that you do with Canadian National Autism Foundation. Did you know that April is Autism Awareness Month?!

Please give Debbie a warm welcome!

Avid Contester Turned Blogger:

First of all I would like to consider myself more of a promoter than a reviewer. New to the world of blogging, I hope to obtain my goal, by writing, promoting the charity I am most passionate about, and our photographs through Picture Ontario.

My first passion is our first blog, showcasing our adventures through photographs has always been a desire. I am fortunate enough to be married 27 years to a man than has the same interests as myself, and photography is one of them.

Because of our photography, we were exposed to CNAF Autism, and I admire the strength of the families who live every day with loved ones diagnosed with Autism. Our relationship grew closer with the Foundation, and I found myself contributing ideas eg. blogging to their subscribed communities. Low and behold, many companies are just as passionate. The charity is amazing, and having the opportunity to assist is very gratifying.

My blog is not complicated. Simplistic is characteristic of me.

The CNAF Autism blog promotes companies that donate portions of their sales. For anyone that knows me, they know I love goodies, and receiving donations, giving them away is one of the fringe benefits.

To conclude:

No! I do not have a fancy name for my blog. I blog in conjunction with the main CNAF Autism blog, and tweet through my own accounts @mommakoala and @CNAFAutism. You can find CNAFAutism group page on Facebook and all the giveaways go through their feed.
