Toys “R” Us and the Toys “R” Us Children’s Fund last week announced their continued support of Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to facilitating research that will uncover the causes of autism, develop effective biomedical treatments and hasten the discovery of a cure. For the second consecutive year, Toys “R” Us will serve as the national sponsor of the Autism Speaks Walk Now for Autism program, a series of more than 75 fundraising walk events held in communities across the country. In addition, Toys “R” Us, in connection with the Toys “R” Us Children’s Fund, will conduct a nine-week, in-store fundraising campaign in its 585 U.S. locations to coincide with Autism Awareness Month in April. To kick off the 2008 partnership, the Toys “R” Us Children’s Fund has awarded Autism Speaks a $250,000 grant.
