A TRALEE mother is part of an Autism Awareness campaign to be officially launched next Monday on Snapchat.

Lisa Curran, who has a young son with autism, is asking people to support the ‘Through Their Eyes’ campaign which has seen a promo video with a song written by Killarney man Tom Lucey seen over 92,000 times on Facebook.

“Our campaign consists of 35 people doing takeovers on snapchat over 7 days to tell their stories with autism (parents, snas, therapists, companies etc) and what it means to them to have the awareness out there for the future generation,” Lisa told us.

“Lots of companies are following suit with autism awareness such as Supervalu in Tralee running autism friendly shopping times and Lidl are beginning theirs in April during World Autism Awareness month.”

The campaign has chosen the charity ‘My Canine Companion’ to be the beneficiary of donations with a number to text open from next week and the money raised from the song’s sales/streams will go to the charity.

‘My Canine Companion’ provides service dogs for children with autism. Each dog costs €10,000 to train.

See thrutheireyes on Snapchat. To donate €4 text MCC to 50300 from Monday next when the line is open. For more info see the My Boy Blue Facebook page and check out the song below…
