World Autism Awareness Day Giveaway

In honor of World Autism Awareness Day, April 2, 2013, I want to bring awareness to autism. This is very near and dear to my heart because my son has autism. I have been a fierce advocate for autism awareness since his diagnosis when he was only two years old. The theme for World Autism Awareness Day is "Light It Up Blue For Autism". There are many ways you can help to bring awareness that affects 1 in 50 children that are diagnosed with autism. I am lighting it up blue by having an autism awareness ribbon as my profile picture on Facebook. I have the Light It Up Blue light bulbs in my porch lights. I purchased autism awareness items that give back to autism community. I am wearing all blue clothing on April 2, 2013. If we all spread awareness, there may one day be a cure.

In honor of this very special day, Reviewz & Newz will be giving away a $25 Amazon egift code. Please use the Rafflecopter form below to enter this giveaway and help spread autism awareness.

  10. This is great you are doing this and recognizing your son. I think this is still something people do not understand.

  11. I think it is extremely important to bring awareness about autism. I think finding a cure or treatment is important but awareness is the key.

  20. I used to be a one on one teacher for children with Autism. It was trying at times, but so worth it when I think back. I miss those days! I suspect my 3 year old may be on the spectrum so I will hug her extra tight, and wear blue. Amy Desrosier

  21. I will wear blue today. While I do not have anyone in my family (yet) that has autism, I babysat a young boy named Luke who did have it. I am happy to say he has come a long way due to the good work of his teachers and parents. Hopefully someday there will be a cure for this!
