Sudokuthon in aid of National Autistic Society

I’m posting this article on behalf of CathyW, one of our regular visitors. It’s about solving sudokus and raising funds at the same time for a very good cause
The National Autistic Society (NAS) is calling upon the nation to take part in the first ever NAS Sudokuthon – the world’s largest Sudoku event. During the week of 9-13 October 2006, thousands of people across the country can help the NAS to raise over £500,000 for UK families living with autism – by completing thousands of Sudoku grids online, at work and at school. Whether a big Sudoku fan or a complete beginner, the most difficult grids can be completed – by understanding the rules and using a little logic. For people with autism, the world and people in it can seem like a confusing puzzle, for which it is hard to find the right answers. However, with the right support, advice and understanding, people affected by autism can achieve their full potential – and the NAS exists to ensure people affected by autism can achieve this support. My son has Asperger’s Syndrome which is an autistic spectrum disorder. With a lot of help he is able to attend a mainstream school and will be taking his GCSEs next year. The NAS is a very worthwhile cause and you could help them while playing your favourite puzzle! By taking part in the NAS Sudokuthon you will help people with autism make sense of the world in which they live – by raising vital funds towards the work of the NAS and providing a lifeline to those affected by autism, their families and carers. You can take part as an individual or you could get your company or local school involved.

    Cathy;
    I have Asperger’s Syndrome, and I enjoyed the Sudokuthon online challenge. With mentoring, determination and a positive attitude, I am at Aston University and a high achiever (approximately third in my year last year!) Thought I might offer an example of how much an ‘Aspie’ can achieve, although I can appreciate we are all different! Best wishes to you and your son and I hope this year we Sudokuthon challengers meet our target!
