Shine a light on Autism

Sorry for the lapse in posts…   we have had a tough week here.   I truly appreciate the emails and support checking in with me.  I’ll update you shortly.  In the meantime, I received this email from Autism Speaks that I wanted to share with all my loyal readers:

“Hi Friend,

The community we’ve built together has a powerful voice, and Autism Speaks annual Light It Up Blue event is our chance to use it.

On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings around the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the Sydney Opera House in Australia — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.

You’ve helped us provide much needed support and advocacy for individuals with autism and their families. Will you now help us light up the world for them?

Sign the pledge to raise autism awareness:

Small actions we take, like wearing blue clothing, featuring the Light It Up Blue logo on our Facebook profiles, and writing blog posts about how we’re participating in Light It Up Blue, can add up to a united movement. And our movement can hit every town across America this year — will you help us make our mark?

Sign the pledge today to help Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue this year:

Thank you for everything you do to help us — and each other.

Sincerely,

Mark Roithmayr
President, Autism Speaks”

Let’s rally together and show our support. Click on the link and spread the word.  We need to raise awareness!   🙂

Lighting it up blue for autism,

Becki
