The Day We Made Our Car Go Blue for Autism Awareness!

This guest post is from Jessica Wolfe who blogs at Courage & Coffee: Learning to Live with Autism. Jessica’s 7-year-old son Ethan is on the autism spectrum. This post was written on behalf of our 2015 Light It Up Blue Campaign! This post originally appeared on Jessica’s blog here.

Two years ago, my husband went WILD for Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue campaign. After that amazing transformation, many product retailers donated items for his next transformation. And.....here it is......

Not only did he add blue lights to the exterior....the paint is GLOW IN THE DARK!!!!!!

Corey switched out the bulbs in our garage for black lights. When the pigment is "charged," we take it out & it glows!!! He also added blue lights on the exterior & interior of the car. This car really LIGHTS up blue!

Ethan LOOOOOVES doing vinyl. He even wraps his diecast Nascar cars in vinyl. So, of course, he was VERY helpful on this project! He decided he wanted his hand on it again & he wanted a heart as well. He installed a lot of the vinyl art on the car.

Thanks so much to all of the vendors & products who helped with this transformation. Corey will leave his car this way for all of April for Autism Awareness Month!
