Lou writes, 'So when I get asked how Light It Up Blue raises awareness, or how a blue light bulb is supposed to help, I usually tell people about my experience last year. It opened up a conversation with my neighbors, it delivered compassion and not pity, it educated people, it got people to donate to a charity, it got neighbors talking and got our family talking. The more people that are aware of the situation at hand, the easier it will become to fight against discrimination, hate and bullying. The more people that know about the uphill battle families face for basic services and assistance, the greater our chances of getting help to little ones when that help is most vital. The more people are aware that autistic people are not only worthy of but DESERVING of our love, that they are not to be feared or shunned, that they are pure potential… the better for my daughter.
GIVE HOPE. TAKE ACTION!
