Monday, April 2, 2012, is the fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day, a day when autism advocates and organizations around the world celebrate by raising awareness and funds to support people with autism. To commemorate the event, the nonprofit autism advocacy group Autism Speaks is asking folks to Light It Up Blue to help shine a light on autism — and they've got lots of great ideas on how to do it.
From the group's website:
"Whether it's your front porch or your local city hall, an office party or a banquet, the whole world is going blue to increase awareness about autism."
