Light It Up Blue
The month of April is Autism Awareness month. We support Autism Speaks by “Lighting It Up Blue.” This campaign is designed to color the world blue in an effort to increase awareness of the challenges faced by people with autism. Awareness is the key to funding research for a cure and helping develop treatments that provide opportunities for people with autism to thrive in this world. Even more importantly, awareness leads to acceptance of people with autism, and their differences, by others. Given that one in 54 children are now being diagnosed with autism, just imagine how many community members have children, family members, or close friends that are affected!
Our Delaware “Light It Up Blue” committee is successful in lighting up University of Delaware, Legislative Hall, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, City of Seaford, Seaford School District, Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Performance, Gallery 107, St. John’s United Methodist Church, Soroptimist’s Your Sisters’ Closet, Nanticoke Automotive, Penco’s Elegant Designs, Hertrich Family of Dealerships, Sweet Serenity, Western Sussex Chamber of Commerce, Act II Florist, and 35 other local businesses. April 2, 2020, the City of Seaford, along with businesses and partners will Light Up our City.
You can help by shining blue lights, wearing blue, putting up signs and spreading the word of acceptance for children and families impacted by autism.
Thanks for helping us shine a light on autism the month of April.
