McCarthy established Generation Rescue in 2005 as a research-based organization to find a cure for autism and other neurological disorders.
“Like Jenny, u might not know what to get me 4 Xmas,” posted the star on his personal Twitter page. “Give 2 www.generationrescue.org – real support 4 families struggling with autism.”
McCarthy is well known for her work supporting autism research, a cause she became involved with after her son was diagnosed with the condition. As well as supporting a number of organizations dedicated to children with autism, such as the TACA and the HEAL! Foundation, the model-turned-actress also wrote a book called Louder Than Words documenting her struggles to cope with a son who suffers from autism.
