    If I look younger here it's because this video is actually 2 years old and it's just taken us this long to feel comfortable releasing it since this is the internet. So please be kind and please consider sharing and donating :)

      That smile! Its so genuine and big! Also that laugh! Its infectious! That is definitely his superpower! Thank you for putting this out there. I'm a father of an autistic little boy and this could not have been easy to do. All you want to do is protect them. Hard to do on the internet. Very Brave and commendable! Thank you Mark

    You're an amazing person for this mark. My brother has autism as well and I struggle a lot to try and help him the best way I can. People like you make it much easier to do this by explaining and giving your insight on the subject. I hope your charity stream goes amazingly and I hope you accomplish your goals for it

    Dued I’m probably on the spectrum I make very Complex songs like a savant and I’ve never had great social skills I have friends but I’m not a social butterfly by any means lmao I love autistic people they have always been drawn to me when I was in school for some reason. Like they know I understand them because I’m nice and have patience. I’m used to sensory overload to some extent I probably have a mild case of it. But I acknowledge it much love 😎

    Hey, Mark! Love and appreciate what you're doing, but please, please, please do NOT support Next For Autism. These guys are a hate group who support eugenics, ABA therapy, 'cures' for autism, and their founder has gone on record saying he wished his autistic son drowned. This group does NOT help autistic people and wants us gone. If you want to support autism, please instead consider donating to ASAN, AIM, A4A, or other similar autism networks!

    What’s even wrong with autism?

    • MrGonzo23

      A lot. It is very traumatic for the child and parents a like. There is a lot of help that can be given. But is still a very debilitating condition.

  • MrGonzo23

    I'm so sorry thats definitely a hard situation. With all that u do for work and having to raise a son with autism must be so difficult. Hope a lot of this money can help out with education. I know for sure there is an incredible impact on their lives when they can get the proper support they need in school. With the pandemic it is no doubt that special needs teachers have been hit the hardest. Hopefully we can change that with the new administration.

    My son is autistic and is about to turn 18. I wish there were more programs for adults with autism. I love your sons laugh and it is soooooo contagious, even on the I nterweb. I love what you are doing and I am going to donate but if the guests mentioned take a political turn, I will never donate to NEXT again.
