Light it Up Blue for Autism Awareness

Thursday, April 2, 2015



Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop! 

Today I am participating to help spread awareness for friends and family members who have

children and family members with Autism. 


Unfortunately we live in a world where people judge what they do not

 know or understand rather than seek information. It's my hope that today's hop will help

 spread awareness and inspire people to become educated on what Autism is and show 

compassion towards those who are affected.

 I came across this amazing 

video made by a young woman with Autism and cannot speak. 

It's called Carly's Cafe


It closes with Carly's message: "Everyone has an inner voice. I found a way to let mine out.








We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness. 





You can see the complete list here:


If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies leave a 

comment on this blog and any of the other blogs participating in today's hop! 

Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday April 6. 


Now here is the card I created for today's hop!






Thanks so much for stopping by!
