It Pays To Have People in “Well Lit Places”

This is a guest post from Barbara Goode, the St. Louis Walk Now for Autism Speaks Manager.

We really wanted to embrace the Light It Up Blue campaign in St. Louis.  The St. Louis Volunteer PR committee has really taken on this project and made it soar.

The first contact they made was nothing short of genius!  They contacted a lighting company; actually, it wasn’t just a lighting company, but THE Lighting Company in St. Louis, HOK Lighting.  HOK Lighting came on board and lent Autism Speaks their time, talent, and knowledge of the buildings and fountains that could easily and inexpensively change the color of their lighting.

And with the “flip of a switch” (okay, a few emails), we suddenly had 10 buildings confirmed… The Big Brothers Big Sisters Building, Chase Park Plaza, City Garden Fountains, Civil Courts Building, Government Hill Fountain, Lambert Airport Terminal, Lewis Rice and Fingersh, Lighting Associates, Missouri History Museum, Soldiers’ Memorial Military Museum, with more confirming each day.  And thanks to one of our fabulous fundraisers, the St. Louis Autism Speaks Office will Light It Up Blue too!

    I’m so happy to live in a community where I am confident my little one with Autism will be supported as she grows in and with the wonderful city. For everyone participating, please know how much this means to us. Thank you for being blue!!

    I love that blue neon light! I totally want one! It seems some of the neighbors in my neighborhood have no compassion and think they are better than most. I dislike people like that so much and realize they will have to answer to the lord when their time comes. I have my autism bumper stickers going, and that light would just be a nice finishing touch!!!
