How Are You Going To Light It Up Blue?

Light it up blue for my sonWhat are you going to do to shine a light on autism? Each April 2nd we celebrate Light It Up Blue in commemoration of the United Nations sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day. This is a unique global initiative that kicks off Autism Awareness month and helps raise awareness about autism.

Locally the Bicentennial Tower and Mercyhurst University went blue. As I drove throughout our community it was amazing the number of families who changed their white porch lights to blue.

At the BNI we will be taking a Wear It Blue group photo of our students and faculty. I am going to turn my Facebook and Twitter profiles blue as a quick way to show my support for the program. Please share ways that you are showing your support for Autism Awareness Day and Month.
