My son's name is Joey Hudy and he's a MAKER. He went to his first Maker Faire last May, it
changed his life! He has Asperger Syndrome a form of Autism. He never could find his place,
but after spending 1 day at Maker Faire San Mateo he did and realized that he was SMART!
He fundraised his way to two more Maker Faire's that summer. Over the past months, Joey has
changed from a young boy with no direction, into a boy with a love and passion. He has made
it his mission to show others about Maker Faires, what kids can make and getting
more STEM into schools. Recently, he was honored to attend the White House
Science Fair and show his invention, the Extreme Marshmallow Cannon, to President
Obama. Now, the time has come for another summer of Maker Faires’ and he can't
do it without your help. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer. We
really appreciate and love being apart of the wonderful MAKING community!
