Apparently this is a "thing" people do. This particular video has 2,411,389 views! Seriously? I don't get it, but he absolutely loves these videos so much he acts them out. hehe
Has anyone else heard of this?
Good evening, I was told you are the perfect person I need to speak with. I understand that Home Depot is known for its charitable work and volunteer programs within the community. I am also aware that your company was very involved with the “Light It Up Blue” campaign with Autism Speaks in April of this year which brings me to why I am contacting you.
To make a long story short my 6 year old son, Ashton, has autism and exhibits severe eloping behaviors. A fenced yard would mean the world to our family and to Ashton. Currently he is unable to play outside like other children his age (unless he is at school or at my mom’s house, both areas are fenced). At any moment no matter how “supervised” he is, he could bolt (and does) and from experience it takes every ounce of strength from my 6ft 2in husband to catch up to him if he gets away. Our house is locked down like Fort Knox and we also participate in the project lifesaver program to dull the constant worry although it does not take the place of having a safe place for my son to play. If we are in a situation outside of the home, he must hold an adults hand which leaves very little freedom for my awesome boy to develop and grow by playing outside and develop his sense of self. My husband and I are trying to raise money to purchase a fence for our backyard.
Please feel free to visit www.afenceforashton.com for more information about my son, the importance of a fence and our unique situation. Please let me know if this is something that Home Depot would be interested in getting involved with.
Thank you so much for your time.
