Participating celebrities will record a personalised message for a small donation of $299, which will go towards autism research and advocacy.
Celebrity messages will be available for purchase for one week only, October 7 – 13, 2013. Fans can register online at SoundOffForAutismSpeaks.com to receive a reminder just prior to the October 7 campaign. A limited number of messages will be available from each celebrity on a first come, first served basis.
Fans will have the unique opportunity to specify what they want their chosen celebrity to say in the message. Autism Speaks will send fans a digital file of their message once it has been recorded by their celebrity.
