It warms our hearts to see so many celebrities giving back!
Last week, we caught up with stars at the Autism Speaks 'Blue Tie Blue Jean Ball' to talk about why it's important to show their support.
"This is something that's growing, more and more kids are being diagnosed," says Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 actor James Van Der Beek.
"The more education that we all have, the more that we can help," says co-host of the event, Beth Riesgraf.
For Nikki Reed, it's personal. "I have a brother who is autistic and it's about figuring out what I can do as a sister and how I can help and contribute," she says.
We couldn't agree with them more! Watch the video (above) to see what else the celebs had to say.
