Yo go, Yoko!!
Yoko Ono has been named the first Global Autism Ambassador by the Autism Speaks organization!!
The wife of the late John Lennon was given the title for creating a piece of art called Promise last year, as a dedication to World Autism Day, which is April 2nd.
While accepting the honor, she said:
"As an artist the concept of distance means nothing to me, you can bring the whole world together with a song, a painting or a single word and that is what I have tried to achieve with Promise and I hope it has been able to make a difference."
We're sure it did! What a lovely gesture!
