Raising Funds to offset the cost of ABA therapy for Dominic

9-15 update
We have hit our Goal!!!! And about 10 hours early!! You are all the most amazing people on the planet!

9-13 update
We are now to a total of $3883 between online, offline, and yardsale item total, which represents a total of 84.4% of our original goal! We are so incredibly blessed with wonderful people in our lives!

9-12 update:
With the offline donations directly to Alpine, and the money we made Saturday in the yardsale, we are at $3683 out of the original goal of $4600! Which is 80%. There's no way to add in offline donations to give forward, so I've adjusted our total on here so that the percentage is correct. Thank you all SO much, we are incredibly grateful to all of you who have pitched in to help make this such a success. 2 1/2 more days until we close the fundraiser!


As ya’ll know from keeping up with us on Facebook, DomsJourney blog, Mama Drama, T-Tapp forums and everywhere else online we spend time, Dominic is making good and steady progress at Alpine Autism Center.

Alpine is a state of the art ABA (applied behavioral analysis) therapy facility in Colorado Springs. They are a 501,c,3 non profit, so their charges are lower than just about any other ABA provider would be. But lets face it, 15 hours a week of ANYTHING is going to be expensive.

We have been paying most of the expenses out of pocket for nearly 3 years now – with some help from family and friends, and a bit of insurance here and there. The day that Dominic turns 7, Feb 11 2012, our insurance policy will stop paying for all therapies related to a diagnosis of Autism.

This is the first time we’ve publically asked for help paying for Dominic’s therapy. The other fundraisers we’ve take part in have gone specifically to Alpine’s general fund. Up to this point, we’ve been able to keep expenses balanced, but due to a number of unexpected house/car expenses in the last month we have had to start robbing the therapy account to stay afloat. As a result of doing this fundraiser now, we will not be participating in the fundraiser part of the Alpine walk in the spring.

The monies raised here will go to Alpine Autism Center as scholarship money specifically for Dominic’s therapy. If you are interested in doing a tax deductible donation instead of this webpage, hit me up on email ( and I'll let you know the way to accomplish that.
