Let’s Talk About Autism – 22 May 2010


talkathonlink I love music. Another thing I like is free. Yeah, that’s right, free (£0). I’ve been using Spotify for exactly a year, as it gives me the music I want, when I want it, legally, and without costing me a penny.

Spotify pays for itself through the adverts it plays every few songs, just like a commercial radio station. One of today’s adverts was about Autism, and what you can do to donate to TreeHouse, an autistic research charity. But this advert offered you to donate to TreeHouse without spending a penny of your own money; simply spread the word. For every Facebook post and Tweet on Twitter sent and shared, TalkTalk (a leading phone network in the UK) give the charity a quid. Just like that.

So why not get involved? Click here to spread the message on the TreeHouse ‘Talkathon’.  Just like Spotify, it’s free but gives you a good feeling.
