I wrote a piece on acoustic-pop band theFIVE6 after interviewing the lead singer, Cathleen Ireland. She said that for each new Twitter follower and Facebook Like they get until July 19, they’re going to donate $2 to Autism Speaks. So please, follow them on Twitter and like them on facebook.
…Ireland is no stranger to charity. She led her band to give to organizations like the American Cancer Society and Autism Speaks based on how many new Facebook likes theFIVE6’s page earned. Both cancer and autism are familiar to her — she said cancer has affected some of her family members, and she has a high-functioning and autistic 11-year-old son, whom she wrote a song for titled “Square Peg.”
