light it up blue

Created by Autism Speaks, this event is a way of celebrating World Autism Awareness Day, a global initiative to bring attention to the growing numbers of people living with autism.  So what is Light It Up Blue?  All around the world, iconic landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the Great Buddha in Kobe Japan, the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Brazil, and the Sydney Opera House in Australia will be lit with blue lights in honor of those with autism.

You can participate too   The Home Depot carries blue light bulbs, filters and lanterns to light your house.  Encourage your colleagues to wear blue to work on April 2nd and post a picture on Facebook.   For more information and details, go to Autism Speaks – Light It Up Blue
