Only a Week Until Light It Up Blue

The countdown is on to April 1st! World Autism Awareness Month is in reach and we are so excited to Light It Up Blue! Every day, leading up to the big day we’ll post highlights, a special interview and much more!

Light the White House Blue

Today Laura Shumaker writes this letter asking President Obama to turn the White House blue! She asks that The White House is lit for her son Matthew, who wants so desperately to be ‘a regular guy.’

Who’s Lighting It Up Blue?

More than 500 buildings and communities are lighting it up blue! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio has signed on to Light It Up Blue! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Inc. is the nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music.

Community Spotlight

Today’s virtual interview is with Jennifer R. from Dothan, Al. 

Autism Speaks: What are you Lighting Up Blue?
Jennifer R.:
The Burger King in Dothan, Alabama where I work.

AS: Why was the ‘Light It Up Blue’ campaign important to you?
: I feel so lucky that my place of employment is so supportive of my son’s condition.

AS: How did you get Burger King on board?
JR: We are displaying blue lights! I went through my manager who talked to our district manager about making this happen! Next year I hope even more buildings in Dothan sign on.
