Gift A Book. Support An Autism Family.


The author of My Unique Child, Jasmine Goh believes that every family that needs to read My Unique Child should not be hindered from doing so. There are families out there who struggle to scrape together a meal, while $28 to many of us is simply the cost of 2 movie tickets.

Will you spare $28 to buy a book for these families who cannot afford it?

To identify these autism families on Public Assistance Scheme, we partnered with local charity organisation ExtraOrdinary People.

This year, 240 families (on Public Assistance Scheme) qualified for the Sponsor A Star program by ExtraOrdinary People.

When you buy a book on this page, one of these 240 families will receive the book you ordered. Your order will help us send a book to a family who needs it.

Every copy of My Unique Child purchased on this page goes directly to these needy families. The more you buy, the more families will benefit.
