Today, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, and April is National Autism Month. For the entire month, Caio Bela in Grand Central Terminal is taking 75 cents off the purchase of a sweet treat to support Autism Speaks, the education and research group supporting families with an autistic member. You have to buy a $1 raffle ticket to get the 75 cents off deal, but that’s another good deal, since there’s a chance to win prizes. Caio Bela is in the Dining Concourse of Grand Central Terminal.
Nationally, Toys R Us has in-store and on-line fund-raising efforts during April, called Shine a Light on Autism at 870 stores
