Today is April 2nd LIGHT IT UP BLUE for Autism Awareness Day !!! I decided to find creative ways to be and get more people involved with raising awareness. So I began to tell people via facebook, twitter, word of mouth and etc to light it up blue by wearing blue, creating a sign, something, ANYTHING that supports today and Autism Awareness month. Did you know that the numbers went from every 1 in 110 child is affected by Autism to every 1 in 88, that's right every 1 in 88 !! We MUST raise awareness, teach and inform our communities so those on the Autism Spectrum and their families will feel more accepted because their community cares to educate themselves and others about autism.
