The organization donates money for the Autism Research Center, which is based at Cambridge University. Autism Rocks raises its funds through concerts that it holds with the help of various celebrated artists. The idea was suggested by Snoop Dogg, who has also performed in the foundation’s concerts.
In 2014, Autism Rocks hosted its first gig, and the late Prince was among the invited celebrities. Other artists who have worked with the charity include Drake, Michael Buble, and Lenny Kravitz. The 2016 concert is designed to be a family event with a lot of enjoyable activities. The featured artists include Tyga and Flo Rida. More information on the Autism Rock’s events can be found on the organization’s official website.
Autism disorder affects the entire life of an individual and is, therefore, worth the effort of research and awareness creation. About two percent of children across the planet are affected by the disorder annually.
