Autumn will be selling pieces of her art work, and will also accept donations from the community, which will be donated to Telemiracle. To donate, go to her Facebook page and donate online, or through the link to TeleMiracle’s page.

Nutrien is matching donations made via Saskatchewan Talent performers, so if donations are made through Autumn’s page, the donation will be doubled.

The money raised throughout the year and during the TeleMiracle telethon benefits the Kinsmen Foundation. They provide funding to the people of Saskatchewan requiring special needs equipment to maintain or improve their quality of life; as well as, travel assistance to those needing to leave their community, to access life-saving medical treatment. Funding is also provided to institutions and health foundations to purchase specialized, new or innovating equipment to improve health care.

“I want to raise funds to help make life easier for those who need extra support, whether that be for people who need prosthetics or maybe those who need help with other medical needs,” she said in a post on her Facebook page.
