Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness

1 in 50 children are diagnosed with autism. One is mine. In honor of World Autism Awareness day on April 2, 2013, I will be lighting it up blue in honor of my son, Zachary, who has autism. I hope you will all join me in bringing awareness to autism so that we may one day find a cure. I have purchased blue light bulbs , I have an autism key chain, necklace, bracelet, and t-shirt to name a few. All of the items I have purchased give back to the autism community by having a portion of their proceeds going to funding autism research. Will you please join me in lighting it up blue for autism awareness?

  9. I did not realize there was a day for this. I have researched a lot on Autism though because there is a chance my youngest is affected by it. If so it is so slight that it is not a big deal for us yet, I guess there are different levels. I will definitely wear blue, thank you for making me aware and I hope they find something soon.
