Kaitlin was featured on the Autism Speaks blog earlier this evening. The blog post not only features the details of this project, but also contains an interview that she did with Autism Speaks earlier today. Check out the blog post, and continue to share this website with friends and family!
Autism Speaks: Thanks for taking the time to have a chat with us! How did you come up with ‘Every Piece Counts?’
Kaitlin Reilly: Well, I was working on a puzzle and my brother came up with an idea. He thought that maybe we get could people to sponsor a piece and then donate to a charity.
AS: Why autism?
KR: Well my cousin has autism, and I have other family members and friends that are affected. I wanted to raise awareness and funds for autism research.
AS: So what is your game plan?
KR: I am looking to raise $24,000, because the puzzle has 24,000 pieces. I am going to work putting the pieces together as donations come in. I want to keep with the pace!
