I’m Alec. That’s me in the middle. Can't remember what I was laughing about?
My guess? It was freakin’ hilarious.
The other two are my main peeps. Daddy’s name is Mark. Mommy’s name is Tami.
I’m profoundly autistic. And I’m 20-something. Although I have no idea what that even means????
Daddy and Mommy affectionately call me The Giant 3-Year Old. Not sure what that means either????
See. I don't talk or speak (Mom knows what I'm saying when I talk...and Dad does my writing. Dance monkeys...dance). If you're curious...and why wouldn't you be...you can read more about me here ===>>> alecjohnson.org
I'm also not afraid of things that can hurt me...like snakes, spiders, on-coming traffic...
So we did some research and found the folks at SDWR. They have dogs specifically for kids like me. How cool is that?
I have two dogs already - Jack and Joey. You can read about them here. I love 'em...but they're not really afraid of those things either. Plus, they're really old (kinda like Mom and Dad) so they don't really like walking much...especially outside.
Anyway. I needed to come up with some money to help the folks at SDWR train my new buddy, and other people's buddies. And then I had a thought...
How many other kids could use the same help I need?
So I decided to not only raise money for me...but also for other people...like me.
I mean...I'm done with school now. And it's probably time for me to get a job. This is as good a job as any. Don't ya think?
We'll be doing some fundraisers later. But in the meantime click on the Donate button and stick some dollars in there. I like quarters...but I think most people like dollars better.
Also, if you know any companies that would like to sponsor a non-profit organization like SDWR contact my Mommy and Daddy. I put them in charge of helping you with that.
Plus, I think it's all tax deductible. Whatever that means???? But Daddy's says it's a good thing.
Thanks for visiting my page. And thanks for sharing my new job with your friends on social media.
Finally...thanks for donating to help me help my friends at SDWR.

Until There’s A Cure...There’s A Dog is the SDWR motto. With hundred of lives changed and over decade of dedicated work, SDWR is a leader service dog organization. We believe that through our uniquely trained service dogs, the lives of those with invisible disabilities can be improved. At SDWR, our service dogs include Diabetic Alert Dogs, Autism Service Dogs, Seizure Response Dogs, and PTSD Service Dogs. Each type of service dog is hand raised by SDWR staff and volunteers to mold it into a life-saving tool for each of our families in need. We promote a high level of interaction between the dog, the recipient family and our training staff to create an environment of success. Unlike other service dog programs, SDWR takes the next step in providing a solid base between a service dog and the recipient.
