Jenny McCarthy has already spoken about autism on the Ellen show. It is time to get a new spokesperson talking about how autism has affected their life. Fashion Designer Tommy Hilfiger has a son with autism, and has partnered with Autism Speaks to share his story.
To get Tommy on the Ellen show speaking about how having a son with autism has affected his life would give the public a whole new perspective on the cause. Tommy would reach out to publics that Jenny McCarthy and Toni Braxon have not, and he will be a fresh face to the public.
Another person in the public’s eye who suffers from autism is Heather Kuzmich. A contestant on America’s Next Top Model, Heather made it through many rounds, not letting her Asperger’s syndrome get in the way of her reaching for her dreams.
It would be a great idea to have Tommy Hilfiger on the Ellen Show and have Heather make an appearance, modeling Tommy’s new ready to wear collection. The segment will then wrap up urging the public to donate to Autism Speaks so that we can get one step closer to finding a cure for autism.
