God did indeed multiply the volunteers, the bracelets and the money! “In just 6 months, Michala and her “Peeps”, through bracelets and donations raised nearly $300,000 for the fund that Kosair Children’s Hospital named, “The Michala Riggle Glutathione Autism Research Fund”. But that wasn’t all…having already reached and surpassed the original goal for the autism study at Kosair, Michala now believes she can raise $300,000,000 to build a world-class autism center in Louisville! What a dream.
To date, Michala and her team have: raised over a half million dollars, created a private foundation(Michala Riggle Beat Autism Foundation, Inc.), assembled a Board of Directors and announced part two of her fundraising plans:
Distribute her bracelets in every state and through partnerships and donations, raise the necessary funds to build and maintain the most comprehensive autism research and treatment center in the world. A National Campaign is scheduled to launch in the winter of 2012.
