Celebrity messages are available for purchase for this week only, October 7 – 13, 2013. A limited number of messages are now available from each celebrity on a first come, first served basis. Fans have the unique opportunity to specify what they want their chosen celebrity to say in the message. Autism Speaks will send fans a digital file of their message once it has been recorded by their celebrity.
The inaugural Sound Off For Autism Speaks took place in December 2012, raising more than $100,000. The campaign was spearheaded by Ed Asner, whose son, Matt, serves as executive director of Southern California for Autism Speaks. In addition to Asner, participating celebrities included Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Carrie Fisher, Tom Hanks, Derek Jeter, Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart and Betty White.
Last year, I got together with Matt and we discussed what my friends and I could do to support the important work of Autism Speaks, said Ed Asner. We decided that bringing together a group of celebrities with great voices to do a kind of voiceathon would be a fun way to raise awareness and funds for the autism community. The campaign was such an overwhelming success and received so much positive feedback we had to do it again.

These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by communication difficulties, social and behavioral challenges, as well as repetitive behaviors. An estimated one in 88 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum a 78 percent increase in six years that is only partly explained by improved diagnosis.

I saw that Autism speak is having a fundraiser with celebrities donating a custom recorded message for $299. I can’t believe that I can have Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Leonard Nimoy (Spock), William Shatner (Captain Kirk), Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard) OR Morgan Freeman (God) are some of the celebrities that I could have record my VM. Hmmm so many beloved science fiction voices that I’m TORN .. TORN!!! Star Wars, Star Trek or God??? I can’t choose! I’m lying I’d have to go for Spock or Captain Kirk or Picard to record my voicemail .. hmmm what would I have him say? You can only purchase the Celebrity message from December 3 – 9, 2012. Fans can register online at SoundOffForAutismSpeaks.com to receive a reminder just prior to the December 3 campaign kickoff.
