What will you do for Autism Awareness Month?
(From the Autism Society’s website)
In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community. Want to get involved with the autism community this April?
There are many ways to show your awareness and support for Autism. Locally, people can offer their time and volunteer to help with some of our events. This April we will be hosting 8th Annual “Uniquely You” 5K and we can always use volunteers to help. Another way is to sport one of our t-shirts, a new design will be available soon and we have plenty of shirts from prior years selling for just $5 each. Please look for more info about our April events very soon.
Another way people show their support is to ‘Light it up Blue’ by wearing blue or adding blue lights around the exterior of their homes. Others change social media profiles and repost supportive information.
Many local businesses, organizations, and first responders all join the Awareness Campaign each year. Maybe you can too.
