Autism Awareness Day 2013

It's April 2nd and aside from it being the birthday of my twin cousins, it is also World Autism Awareness Day!!

To raise awareness people are asked to wear blue today and light up their porches with blue light tonight.

In honor of Autism Awareness Day I wore my PuraVida Autism Awareness bracelet that was being sold last year to raise money for the Autism Society of America. My cousin, one of the ones who's birthday it is today bought it for me as a gift last year and I have not taken it off since! (I couldn't wear blue because I wear a uniform to work but I'm still showing my support every day!)

See...you can tell its worn out....

Oh, and even my hair tie is blue!!! :-)

What are you doing today to raise awareness? Were you planning on something in advance? Did you just find out about it today? Are you affected by autism? I'd like to hear from you!!

Here are some pictures of places around the world that have already started "Lighting it up blue" for autism awareness!!
Aspen, CO

Empire State Building

Sydney Opera House

University of Connecticut


For my children, I love you!! You are miracles overcoming obstacles that nobody can even imagine in your daily lives. I am proud to be your mother!!

    1. Thanks!! I love to see all of the support out there. I would never have thought in a million years the numbers of people out there supporting this cause :-)

  2. I didn't realize today was Autism awareness day but must have had some pull to wear a blue shirt today.. so it worked out! Its awesome to see so many band together to support this cause.
