Zac for The Golden Hat Foundation  
Tumblr satisfythecrave has been scanning in select pictures from the book The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism, including one of Zac (ty to @parisbreedlove for pointing this pic out to me). The tumblr also posted some background about what the Golden Hat Foundation is and how the book came about:
In 2009, Kate Winslet provided the English-language narration for the Icelandic documentary, A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism, about a young boy named Keli Thorsteinsson who has a severe form of non-verbal autism and is unable to speak. Thorsteinsson’s mother, Margret Ericsdottir, and Winslet became very close through their work on the documentary and are now great friends. In 2010, Winslet and Ericsdottir started the Golden Hat Foundation, which aims to improve the lives of people with autism. Their book The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism (out now) features a section of Winslet’s well-known friends taking self-portraits of themselves either wearing or somehow including the “golden” hat — one of her own fedoras. Winslet asked them to include a little quote that would express one thing they’d like to say if they couldn’t speak.

Actually I think his part in Miracle Run may be what connected him so strongly to autism. He had to do a lot of research for that role (He did a fantastic job with that part btw) and it may have caused him to want to bring more awareness to the disease, especially since he has a strong young following.

I guess Miracle Run is what sparked his interest in it, and yes, I think we all know he did a great job in that movie. Zac didn't really have a "following" when he did Miracle Run, so he must just have been interested in it just because.

Oh when I said following I meant more after the fact then in the moment when he did the film. Also he had a following when he did Miracle Run, it was all of 4 people (including me) but it was a start LOL
