The countdown is on to April 2nd! World Autism Awareness Month is in reach and we are so excited to Light It Up Blue! Everyday, leading up to the big day we’ll post highlights, interviews, photos, and much more!

Who's Lighting It Up Blue?

One of the newest Light It Up Blue participants this year is Aspen, Colorado, where they’ve taken the idea of shining a light on autism seriously. On April 1, Aspen kicks off National Autism Awareness Month as the first ski resort in history to Light It Up Blue.
