Wozniak has a history of philanthropic ventures and his speaking agency is following suit. Amy Morganti, owner of New Leaf Speakers, searched for the right nonprofit to align with and chose The Friendship Network for Children. "My husband and I have twin nieces who are 5 years old who have been diagnosed with autism...so your focus is very near and dear to our hearts," Morganti told Nancy Swanberg, Executive Director of the Organization.
The Friendship Network for Children serves over 100 children with autism weekly. "All children should be allowed the gift of friendship," explains Swanberg. "Friendship is Possible" is the Network's motto. Swanberg founded the organization to decrease the extreme loneliness and isolation that often goes untreated in children with autism.
