SAN MATEO, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Horn Productions, Inc. announced today that "Light of Hope: Help for Children with Autism," the first-ever internet telecast focused on autism recovery, will debut internationally on Friday, April 24, Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26 at www.findingthewords.org during the final week of World Autism Awareness Month, and will be co-sponsored by the CEOs of two Silicon Valley software companies: NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) and Zoho Corporation.

Sharing the primary sponsorship slots for broadcast programming is a first for the NetSuite and Zoho Corp. CEOs who both have children on the autism spectrum. They felt that this was their chance to bring help to families around the world struggling with similar issues.
According to Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite: "We are excited about supporting this event because it explores and presents a whole new way of thinking about autism. We are pleased to help bring this extraordinary event, and the new paradigm of autism it introduces, to families worldwide. It's too important not to be heard."
Sridhar Vembu, CEO of Zoho Corporation, agreed. "We believe that technology holds the key to uncovering the commonalities of so many of these children. We need to work with the medical community to find answers to all of the unanswered questions about autism - its treatment and its prevention. But first, one must have hope. And that's the message this program delivers so well."
Elizabeth Horn, President of Horn Productions, Inc., said: "Having support from two successful Silicon Valley industry leaders is a dream come true for us. Our mission, to bring the 'good news about autism' to families that need hope so desperately, will only be fulfilled with help from caring individuals.
