Sanjay Shah has been an advocate for autism for years now. Like many other individuals, he did not know much about the condition or the effects it has on the body. However, when his son was diagnosed with autism, he quickly found all of this out and then some. Now, he understands there are many different autistic fundraisers out there, raising money to search for a cure. Due to this, he wants to help in different ways. While understanding why it is important to discover a way to prevent the development of autism, Sanjay has focused his sights on helping those children and families who already have autism but don’t have the financial needs to pay for the necessary education and treatment. There are plenty of children around the world who do not have access to the necessary financial requirements of these additional educational needs. That is why he has created Autism Rocks and established a Go Fund Me page to help bring money in.
Autism Rocks started off as a program where musicians would donate their time to put on a concert. All of the money raised from the concert would then go to help sponsor children around the world with autism in need of assistance. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Prince and Snoop Dogg. In order to increase the amount of money raised and given to children, Sanjay decided to create Autism Rocks the Go Fund Me campaign. This campaign, which is live right now, is accepting donations in order to help pay for different children and to bring in more money than just the concerts. The concerts are only able to occur from time to time simply due to the logistics required to produce the show. However, this is a campaign that can be ongoing and can continue to raise money for autism and autistic awareness.
Sanjay has worked in the financial sector for much of his life. Due to this, he knows where to go when it comes to raising funds for different projects such as this.
