Video Transcript

Sarah: My twin brother Jacob has an autism spectrum disorder. I remember one moment after being at school all day... and I remember him getting into the car just bawling and saying 'Mom, I have no friends. Why don't I have any friends?' It broke my heart.

Lyrics: Brother let me be your shelter, never leave you all alone.

Sarah: That was the moment when I realized that I needed to do something about this. I needed to make a difference in his life. And I knew that if I could help him find a friend, I could help teach other people that including people with differences is the right thing to do.

Lyrics: Bring it home. Brother let me be your shelter...

Sarah: That was the inspiration behind my non-profit "Score A Friend". Educating people to include people with difference is so important because when Jacob's included, he feels like he can succeed in life and he feels like he actually has a purpose.

Inclusion. Pass It On!
