Light It Up For Autism Awareness

Posted on

From Autism Speaks, at http://www.lightitupblue.org/.  Remember, you don’t have to have a child with autism to show your support for those that do!!

On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.

We’re aiming to light the world blue all throughout April — city by city, town by town — by taking action to raise autism awareness in our communities.
