Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a cryptocurrency that was developed by an anonymous individual or group of individuals using the pseudonym “Ryoshi” in early 2020. The project was launched on Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token and it was inspired by the meme-based Dogecoin and its mascot is a shiba inu dog, which is a Japanese breed of dog. GalleryHope, The Art of Loving Kindness #ShibaInu Gallery is here: https://opensea.io/collection/shibainuartist
Shiba Inu has gained popularity due to its association with the popular meme-based cryptocurrency Dogecoin, as well as its distribution model, which involves a large portion of the total token supply being distributed to holders of Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies.
It is worth mentioning that Shiba Inu is a decentralized project and its development and direction is guided by the community, and it is not controlled by any single individual or organization.

NEW YORK, NY – AutismRadio, a 100% volunteer charitable organization helping families challenged with Autism since 2003 has released their first single on iTunes, “Hope Saves The Day” by Autism Radio founder and Host of the World’s First Autism Family Support Radio Network, Paul Cimins.

BEAUTIFUL STORY: Paul Cimins, Founder of Autism Radio and Host of Autism Family Support Network, “Hope Saves The Day”, wrote the song as a poem in 2005 for his amazing 9-year-old son with Autism, Jonathan Cimins. The new single “Hope Saves The Day” is a truly beautiful rendition of a communication between a Father and His Non-Verbal Son with Autism. The unspoken emotional pain and suffering that many parents silently suffer in the Autism community is not addressed enough. Families stay at home because they cannot emotionally deal with the criticism or potential public outbreak. “People who don’t know what Autism is can be really cruel, we’re here to change that, bring families out of the shadows and into the Light,” commented Paul Cimins.
After support from his family and brother, Brian Cimins (http://CoachingForAutism.org), he finally produced the full song to help his son “hear his voice”, because Jonathan hasn’t spoken since his 18-month-old Vaccine booster shot. 100% of Proceeds Donated to http://AutismRadio.org (501c3) A Heartfelt Song for All Parents of a Loving Child with Autism
Every time I see your smile,
I wonder what you feel.
Every time you laugh or cry,
I wonder if it’s real.
You seem trapped inside
Please help me understand
What is your world like,
I want to feel your love,
I want to know what its like to Laugh and Play,
Imagine a thought that you cannot feel,
A tear trapped inside,
Imagine a sound that you cannot make
No matter how hard you tried.
I want you to know how I’m Feeling
I want you to know How it feels to be me
I wish you could look into my World and see how I see
Hold my hand and remind me,
To Hold on to Hope each Day
Let this Song Be My Voice
And Remember Hope Saves The Day
I want to show you what I see,
What kind of Life will I have,
What’s in store for me?
Don’t be afraid,
Just Love and Hold Me
I can be all that I can be.
With your Love I can do anything.
With your Love I can see the World
Like Rays of Light Shine upon me, inside of me
There You are Right By My Side
I will Love you to the End of Time.
Hold my hand and remind me,
To Hold on to Hope each Day
Let this Song Be My Voice
And Remember Hope Saves The Day

1 in 88 children are diagnosed with Autism. All of the children and beautifully gifted in their own way, but because we are just starting to uncover the mysteries of Autism and Aspergers, we are realizing how very special and unique each child or adult with Autism is. Just like no child is the same, no child with Autism is the same. Some children do not speak, some are slightly introverted, some can’t be touched, some don’t like loud noise, and a million other unique potential differences that stand out on the Autism Spectrum.
There have been only a few movies that truly captured the true essence of Autism including the Temple Grandin movie on HBO back in 2010. The Story of Luke captures the innocence, the essence, the unfiltered love, the challenges, the family healing power of a child (or adult) with Autism, and the HOPE of love – “The Story of Luke” nailed it and is a must see for anyone affected by Autism. Quite simply stated, The Story of Luke is the best Autism movie ever made and everyone will enjoy it on multiple emotional levels including laughing out loud and crying uncontrollably, especially those who truly LOVE someone with Autism. Please watch this movie to gain a better understanding of Autism’s large spectrum and how one person’s experience with life is. It’ll grow your heart to better understand the family challenges and quality of life issues for 1 in 88 children in America.
I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Paul Cimins of Autism Radio (http://AutismRadio.org) since inception of their amazing charity that helps families challenged with Autism every day.
Many people do not know that Paul Cimins’ 9-year-old son, Jonathan Cimins was diagnosed with Autism at 2-years-old after an adverse reaction to a Vaccine. He went from 50+ words to Zero words after a 105 degree temperature and hasn’t communicated since. Paul and his family were massively challenged back in 2003 without any available information, diet, alternative treatments, supplements or special services. Paul Cimins became The Autism Super Dad, a voice for his son and the millions affected within the Autism community seeking knowledge in an open minded non-political environment.

Seeing this movie gave me hope for my nephew Jonathan – because I imagine him speaking one day just like “Luke” with the heartfelt emotional learning curve that comes so naturally to most people, but not as natural with some children with Autism or Aspergers. See how “Luke” heals everyone he comes into contact with, the POWER of LOVE within a child with Autism is amazing. As parents and relatives and friends, we need to support the parents and child equally, because so many parents and children with Autism live in private despair, afraid to leave the house, and afraid to face the world. Awareness of the signs of Autism and showing extra kindness and patience or being a REAL friend to someone affected with Autism can become one of the most special experiences in life.
Keep shining your LIGHT, especially for those who need it the most.
In 2011, Paul Cimins and his National Charity, Autism Radio (http://AutismRadio.org) launched an amazing “Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program” for children along with Stella Riding and the New Jersey Equestrian Center in Pompton Plains, New Jersey.
“Therapeutic horseback riding has been used to help people with autism. Especially for autistic children. This activity is said to benefit the communication, motor skills, and social skills of an autistic person. It also causes improvement in responses to verbal and external stimuli and relaxation. People with autism cannot ignore one sense and let another take over the way most people can. Instead, they see, smell, hear, taste, and feel, and think all at once giving them sort of a sensory overload that they cannot handle.[original research?] Riding a horse helps them concentrate on just the task they are doing rather than everything all at once.
Equine assisted activities work almost like a reward system. When a child with poor communication skills wants the horse to walk they have to use a verbal command to move the horse forward it gives them incentive to give that command. Also, they will begin to build a bond with the horse and also with the handlers of that horse. Although the horses are led during lessons they learn to pull the reins to move the horse to one direction or another. These could be reaching down to grab something or giving the handler a high-five. Individuals with autism will learn to interact with the horses handlers to convey to them what they want the horse to do. If they want the horse to walk they have to learn from the handler how to ask the horse to do that. Also, it helps them to focus on something outside from themselves which is a difficulty for people with autism.”
My nephew, Jonathan Cimins was born on April 16, 2003 as a seemingly healthy, beautiful blue eyed baby boy. At 18 months old, soon after his booster vaccination, his speech rapidly declined, his behaviors started becoming repetitive, spinning for hours, jumping for hours, making strange noises and even seriously injuring himself without fear, we were lost. Sadly, he’s never been able to say, “Daddy, I love you,” but his father, Paul Cimins NEVER gave up Hope. UPDATE: On May 6, 2013, Jonathan said “Daddy” – check out: http://AutismRadio.org
Cimins’ mastery in the Culinary Arts as a graduate of Culinary Institute of America and consulatations with DAN Doctors and Nutritional Experts propelled him to create the world renonwn, “Autism Spectrum Diet”, voted “best tasting gluten free and cassein free recipes”. He sought out international Autism experts and doctors, herbalists, phychiatrists, alternative biomedical treatments and most importantly, family crisis support groups throughout the World.

There was very little information available, no health insurance support and no guidance or help for families who learned their child or children had Autism. There were no treatments or hope for many of these families. The Divorce rate amongst parents of Autistic Children is 75%. With one in 91 boys being diagnosed with Autism, now is more important than ever to help raise funds to directly support families. Other Autism organizations boast “awareness” campaigns, but lack in the true families that need their help the most.
Paul Cimins and the entire family is on a QUEST to help cure and treat Autism and help the families it can potentially devastate. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Grappling Autism was founded by Brian Cimins in 2007 to help raise funds for families with AutismRadio, a 5013c charitable organization you directly helps these families, most desperately in need of support, both emotionally and biomedically to help recover their child. Cimins is the President and Founder of Grapplers Quest currently donates $1 from every competitor worldwide directly to AutismRadio and with annual donations exceeding $10,000+ annually, still just helps ONE family per year, that’s how expensive Autism can be to treat properly.
Autism Families desperately need our support.
