I am Juliana Fetherman a Graduate student at Sacred Heart University working towards my MBA concentrated in marketing. I started a company called Making Authentic Friendships LLC, which is in the works of becoming a mobile application that will enable children (ages 13+) and adults with special needs make friends. It will match them based on their age, diagnosis, interests and geographic location. It is called Making Authentic Friendships (MAF) for short, which are also my brothers initials. My brother Michael has autism and ADHD and being lonely from his lack of friends, adds to his many other already existing issues. A majority of your contribution will go directly towards making this application a reality. It will help millions of individuals and families affected by disability. The other part of your contribution will be donated to local nonprofits that help individuals with autism and other special needs.
