Join us and Light It Up Blue for autism awareness

Release Date: 
4/1/2016

Tomorrow, April 2, is World Autism Awareness Day, adopted by the United Nations in 2007. The color blue comes in as Autism Speaks celebrates its “Light it Up Blue” awareness campaign on the same day to encourage people to wear blue shirts or install blue lights in their homes and businesses. Watch the video below to learn more about the Light It Up Blue Challenge and see some amazing world landmarks turn cerulean in this stirring video.

Since April 2, tomorrow, is a Saturday. We hope many of you will wear blue (and maybe post a picture of you in your blue duds on our facebook page, tag it with #LIUB and join the social buzz). Get fancy and download some of the #LIUB social swag here http://media.autismspeaks.org/liub/Selfie+Sign+%2B+How+to+Light+It+Up+Blue.pdf

As an agency we’d like to celebrate and support the hundreds of children we work with in Douglas and Jackson counties who have Autism by having a large number of staff members wear blue on Monday, April 4, too. So join us, and get decked out in your Saturday and Monday blues! We also hereby challenge Superintendent Michael Lasher to swap his trademark purple tie for a blue one this Monday!

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to Light it Up Blue!
