Autistic Icelandic Boy Inspires Winslet to Start Fund

English actress Kate Winslet announced yesterday that she has established a fund to support people with autism in cooperation with Margrét Dagmar Ericsdóttir, the mother of autistic Icelandic boy Keli, the star of the documentary A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism (original title: Sólskinsdrengurinn, or “The Sunshine Boy”) by director Fridrik Thór Fridriksson, for which Winslet did the English narration.

“It is absolutely Kate Winslet’s foundation, she is the pioneer of this project,” Ericsdóttir told Fréttabladid. It is called The Golden Hat Foundation, in reference to a poem Keli wrote. The project was presented in the US yesterday and at the same time the foundation’s website was launched.
