Light it Up Blue

Tonight, April 1, prominent buildings across North America and the world including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada will be lit up blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Friday, April 2.

Join me to raise awareness. Here are some things I am doing to "Light It Up Blue":

•I will be sporting my novelty Chesapeake Ribbons' Autism Awareness products throughout the month of April.

•I will update my Facebook profile picture to the Light It Up Blue logo and tag my friends.

•On April 2 I will dress myself and the kids in blue clothing to show our support and hopefully open some dialogue with those that might not be as knowledgeable about World Autism Day.

Here are some things you can do to Light It Up Blue:

•Wear your Autism Speaks puzzle piece pin every day throughout the month of April, and tell people about autism if they ask about it. (Wear your Chesapeake Ribbons' product or purchase an Autism Awareness key fob).

•Change your Facebook profile picture to the Light It Up Blue logo and tag at least 10 of your friends.

•Post on your blog about how you are “lighting it up blue” to raise autism awareness.

•Add the Light It Up Blue logo to your e-mail signature … and type your e-mails in blue!

•On April 2 wear blue clothing and ask your co-workers, schools and friends to wear blue too. Take pictures and add them to our Flickr gallery.

•Bake puzzle piece shaped cookies and frost them with blue icing, then bring them to your school, work or place of worship to raise autism awareness.
