Sanjay has always been about giving back to the community. While he is best known for his professional work, through the success of his investment capital company that spans around the world, he has been able to turn his attention to assisting those around him in need. In one such case, it has proven especially important for him to assist individuals suffering from autism. When his son was diagnosed with autism, he found himself behind the eight ball, as he really didn’t know much about the condition or how to cope with it. He simply figured his son would be unable to do anything in life. That, he eventually learned, is simply not the case at all, it just takes special attention and care early on to help develop the motor skills and to make him that much more capable of succeeding in life. All of this helped spur Sanjay on to creating Autism Rocks.
So what is Autism Rocks exactly? It is a non profit organization designed to raise money for sponsoring children with autism around the world. There are some locations in the U.S. where schools, either public or private, offer specially tailored services for students with autism. However, most locations around the world do not have this kind of access. Now, these children are able to thrive and succeed. All it takes is a bit of help and Sanjay’s program.
The Autism Rocks name comes from the main way the organization raises money. Autism rocks puts on concerts around the world where big name performers, such as Snoop Dogg and Prince perform and all of the ticket sales go towards raising money. Sanjay Shah also has a secondary way to raise money, and this is through his Go Fund Me page. This page makes it possible for individuals to directly donate to the program. Even if they are not able to attend a concert, they can still help raise money for the cause.
