Freddie is 10 years old, autistic and a true 10 out of 10 human being. He lives in a wonderworld called space, where the stars live. Nobody, not even scientists, really understand what's going on up there. In the same way, Freddie, aware he is different, he feels like nobody understands what's going on in his universe and struggles to make friends.
"Daddy, can you get me a friend?"
Sean is a young single dad, Freddie's primary carer, Freddie's best friend and his first fan. He never asks any help and is just a true 24/7 superhero.
Our future space traveller, when he doesn't have his head in the stars, dreams of having a puppy to be his friend.
Sean is trying to save up to be able to get a trained assistant dog for his child but for many reasons, he is struggling to do so.
So, as Sean's friends, we are hoping to raise the money to cover the cost of a trained dog.
Autism assistance dogs are trained to provide safety and to facilitate a more independent and socially inclusive life for both the child with autism and their family. Currently, charities in the UK are stretched and the waiting list for getting a therapy dog is very long. Freddie is growing up quickly and battling more and more with his loneliness.
Our hope is to give support to the both of them so they can add a 3rd beautiful mind to watch the shooting stars with.
