Light It Up Blue April 2nd!




I hope you will join me in displaying a blue light on your porch or in a window, celebrating World Autism Awareness Day April 2nd!

Autism rates jumped 23% between 2006 and 2008, and now as many as 1 in 88 children have been diagnosed with autism according to the CDC.  http://minnesota.publicradio.org/features/npr.php?id=149612138


Autism has touched my life, but with awareness there is hope.

I have my blue bulb...



It's ready for tomorrow night! 








I hope you will join me.

  2. Thank you for the link. Autism has affected me directly in my house and you can be sure we will be shinning blue in our family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  3. Hi Carlene,

    I haven't heard of Autism Day; thanks for the information. My husband was watching a basketball game last night and he wondered what the blue jigsaw pieces meant that some were wearing. Now I know!

    Happy Easter!
    Happy 1st Blue Monday.
