Smile..... Someone may be taking your picture
As a volunteer, you take on an additional responsibility when photographs are

Chances are there will be no problem, but parents are totally in tune that you
should be requesting a photo release. No one wants to find their picture, or that
of their child on the Internet without prior knowledge and consent. This is an
important, but a small hurdle. If you are taking a photo, carry a couple of
consent forms with your camera. Want to learn more or obtain a consent form
for your registering organization?

April is Autism Awareness Month, but the condition itself is
lifelong. With the increasing statistics, it touches every one

America to promote awareness and as a fundraiser to help
assist impacted families. Again, one local therapy animal
group joins the effort to promote that awareness
