Yoko Ono Given The Title As Global Autism Ambassador!

Filed under: Inspiration


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!

Congratulations, bb!
