The FASD project is a societal wake-up call - a documentary film in the making to increase awareness of the risks of alcohol consumption since the onset of the global pandemic. This film aims to bring awareness and validation to the silent epidemic that intellectually, developmentally and physically impacts more than two times the number of individuals with Autism and is highly preventable. The goal of this film is to provide evidence of this huge public health issue through interviews with scientists, clinicians, psychologists, educators, social workers, representatives of the judicial system and most importantly, parents and family members of individuals with FASD. The film will introduce you to individuals on this spectrum who, with supports which are not readily available for most, are able to live life to their potential. In addition, you will meet those who, due in large part to organic brain damage from prenatal alcohol exposure, have faced incarceration, homelessness and addiction.
In addition to the thousands of volunteer hours used to create this film project, The FASD Project needs to raise $20,000 to cover the remaining costs associated with travel, crew expenses and most importaintly film editing.
All funds raised in this campaign through FASD Communities will go to the production of The FASD Project Film. For more info on the film, go to www.theFASDproject.org.
Any funds remaining after film production will be used to support the work of FASD Communities "Forever Homes".
