Autism Speaks - Light It Up Blue Across the Lehigh Valley

As you may know, April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day and to recognize it, buildings and organizations all over the globe participate in Autism Speaks’ Light It Up Blue campaign.  The Empire State Building, the Sydney Opera House, and the Pyramids in Egypt are just a few of the notable landmarks to Light It Up Blue.  Locally, Air Products will be shining Blue Lights on our headquarters in Trexlertown for the third year to show our support for autism awareness.  We are inviting other companies and schools in the Lehigh Valley to Light It Up Blue for this international event.  

Our goal is to have at least 88 businesses, schools, and organizations Light It Up Blue in the Lehigh Valley this year.  This number represents the 1 in 88 American children who are diagnosed on the autism spectrum.   

If you need assistance to Light It Up Blue, visit www.LightItUpBlue.org (click Tools & Resources) for more ideas.  Showing your support for autism awareness can be done very economically and it has a big impact!  

If you have any questions, please contact lehighvalley@autismspeaks.org.  We encourage you to email photos showing participation in the Lehigh Valley Light It Up Blue campaign.  We will share them through our website, social media, and at our Lehigh Valley Walk Now for Autism Speaks (www.walknowforautismspeaks.org/lehighvalley) that will be held April 20 at Dorney Park.  Thank you very much for your support to Light It Up Blue in the Lehigh Valley!
