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!!
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!!
