(March 24, 2014) -- Halley VI, the research station in Antarctica run by the British Antarctic Survey, will light up blue for autism awareness on April 2 again this year. Last year, when Halley VI went blue for the first time, it meant people on all seven continents helped raise autism awareness by participating in Light It Up Blue.
Halley VI is the latest landmark that will go blue next month for autism awareness. On April 2, all over the world, on all seven contintents, iconic landmarks and buildings get lit in blue in commemoration of World Autism Awareness Day. The Empire State Building, the Sydney Opera House, Christ the Redeemer in Rio and the Pyramids in Egypt, along with thousands of other buildings, light the night sky blue as a gesture of worldwide solidarity for the cause.
Wherever you live, you can join in by lighting your work or home blue. See which other buildings around the world will Light It Up Blue for autism awareness and add your building to the list!
