Music is Helping to Understand Autism

Sanjay Shah is a self-made millionaire and charitable man. His son was diagnosed with Autism and this drove him to find ways to help understand it. Simply sending money to charities did not feel like enough or even buying cars for a medical facility specializing in Autism. He went on to start his own charity and helped to choose how the money would be used to research and better understand Autism.

He really started to earn his money when he established himself as a hedge-fund manager, but he would now consider himself retired. He had a lot more free time on his hands after retiring, and a chance visit by the rapping icon Snoop Dogg prompted Sanjay Shah to come across the idea of setting up a music charity concert to raise funds and awareness for Autism. One of the first concerts he was able to set up was known as Blended. A mixture of having a couple of well-known artists, a good cause and a level of exclusivity for the event established it to be successful entry into his work in charity. Continuing with his idea and success he was able to open his own charitable organization now known as Autism Rocks.

Sanjay Shah has successfully used the influence and contacts he has gained throughout his life to drive other influential people within their industries to really make a difference. Autism Rocks has already drawn many iconic names to play for his private concerts and has raised millions of dollars to aid in researching Autism.

One of the methods being used to gather donations for his charity is a www.gofundme.com campaign. This is a great way to earn funding for any circumstance in life that you can imagine. This campaign gives Sanjay Shah an excellent way to earn money for Autism Rocks from the general public from anywhere in the world. A donation to this GoFundMe campaign will go on to help the Autism Research Center in Cambridge University develop research projects to identify who may develop Autism and specific ways to help people who have it.
