Autism Awareness is a cause near and dear to our little Jack hearts. Today is World Autism Awareness Day (and throughout April) and we want to shine a light on the syndrome that affects so many lives, we’re lighting it up BLUE!

Each April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates Light It Up Blue along with the international Autism community, in commemoration of the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day. Light It Up Blue is a unique global initiative that kicks-off Autism Awareness Month and helps raise awareness about autism. In honor of this historic day, many iconic landmarks, hotels, sporting venues, concert halls, museums, bridges and retail stores are among the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities that take part to Light It Up Blue.

Feel free to light up that BLUE front porch light. Get the details here at the official site for AutismSpeaks.
