Light It Up Blue and Autism Blog Hop!

Saturday, April 2, 2011


***See below for the Etsy Inspired Challenge***

I wanted to share with you all that "Light It Up Blue" is going on right now. In fact, buildings all over the world are lighting up in bright blue to help kick off Autism Awareness Month and celebrate World Autism Awareness Day on April 2

Most of my bloggy friends know that my youngest daughter Rachel is a high functioning Autistic child. Some days are a challenge, but with great doctors and several therapies she is thriving. She is a Blessing from God and we Adore her soooo much.


Be sure to visit lightitupblue.org for more photos and information, and events in your area. See a list of the more than 1000 buildings participating in Light It Up Blue and find out about national fundraising and awareness initiatives from Autism Speaks’ partners.

For more info you can also visit the Autism Speaks website HERE!
Also, Sarah at The Pink Cricut is actually having an Autism Awareness Blog Hop today. There are prizes to win along the way. Please visit these wonderful crafters and read about their experiences with Autism. Here's a list and links to their blog hop.
