Do you believe that vaccines cause autism?
Then spend $20 to let others know!
Are you sick and tired of this issue being glossed over and ignored by the media? Then do something about it!
Can you afford to donate $20 to help let Australians know that vaccines do, in fact, cause Autism? I guess the question actually should be, can you afford NOT to donate $20?
The following ad ran in this week's USA Today newspaper and was seen by millions of people all over America. It is hard-hitting, no-holds barred and has set the whole country talking about this subject which is so taboo in the mainstream media.
We have been in communication with Operation Rescue - the organisers of this campaign - and have been given permission to run the same ad in Australia (with some minor changes to make it more Australian in nature). The cost of this ad is $53,000 - a figure which seems staggering until you break it down into the number of people reading this email. Then, you realise that it will cost each one of us very little if, working together, we feel the importance of this action.
So, just $20 will mean that we could pay for an ad which would educate hundreds of thousands of Australians about the real connection between the administration of vaccines and the explosion of Autism-Spectrum disorders (ASDs) currently being experienced in every developed country - including Australia.
Strike a blow for freedom of choice - for only $20! We need your donation by Monday, March 9th so please don't delay and if you are in a position to give more, please do so.
Funds can be deposited into the following account either over the counter at a branch or via Internet banking (please email Judy at judy@avn.org.au to let her know that your donation is directed to this fund and please also leave your name on the deposit so we can send you a receipt).

Gardasil Vaccine overview
presented by Meryl Dorey
Tuesday, March 24
from 7:30 PM AEST to 8:45 PM AEST
Meryl will be discussing the horrendous reactions that have been reported to the AVN, the way in which this vaccine is being marketed, the fact that boys are soon to be vaccinated with Gardasil and ways in which, through community and grass-roots action, pressure can be applied to bring about the withdrawal of this extremely dangerous shot. The seminar will run for 45 minutes with 1/2 an hour for question time.

Free to all current AVN members.

Your support is amazing!
The AVN can continue...for now
We put out a call for help and you have come through with flying colours! We have received enough support to continue operations for the present but we want to avoid a repeat of this situation at all costs!

The AVN committee is in the process of working with our accountants in order to develop systems which will make our operations more sustainable. In the meantime, if there are any business mentors out there who would like to help us with advice, that would be very much appreciated. Please just contact our office on info@avn.org.au or call us on 02 6687 1699 and speak with either Judy or Meryl.

In addition, due to the breathing space which your donations have granted us, we have been able to link up with Generation Rescue to try and publicise the proven links between vaccination and autism (see the article at the top of this publication) and to also get information out into the QLD media regarding the current 'outbreak' of measles which is sending fear and loathing out into the community as a whole.

While you continue to support us, we will do everything in our power to support you. If you have not yet made a donation to the AVN, if you value what we do, if you are in a position to help us in any way, please don't feel that the need is over. In this environment of forced medication, cover-ups of information and refusal to accept that people have a right to choose their own therapies, the AVN is more necessary than ever before.
Annual General Meeting - Please attend!
March 23, 2009 - held online
All AVN members should have received a proxy form in their latest Inside Edition to inform them that the AVN is holding its AGM on March 23rd. I would personally like to encourage all of you to attend this meeting (it is held online in much the same way that the webinars will be) since we value your input highly. If you can also nominate for a committee position, that would be great as our support base on the committee is a bit sparse at present. Meetings are held bi-monthly so the commitment on your part will be minimal. Please, either return your proxy forms with your nomination or contact us on 02 6687 1699 for further information.
