April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. Most people I know install blue porch lights in support of this day. 

My DH bought some blue bulbs last year, but we honestly forgot to change them out. lol. 

Will you light it up blue?

 Yes, we did last year and will again this year. My neighbor does as well she had 2 grandsons that are Autistic and even though they live in another state she feels it's a little part of her to bring awareness. My parents also light it up blue as well.

No. This is an Autism Speaks initiative and I don't support that organization or their message.

Yes, I will. Our local autism organization suggests adding yellow (symbolize movement from autism awareness to autism acceptance) and green (to celebrate neuro-diversity), but I only have one porch light lol. So I will light it up blue, simply because it is the most recognizable for the cause.

I am also looking for stickers (decals) to put on my car and looking at t-shirts.

Our blue bulbs are still in from last year.  We will all probably wear blue and his preschool is having a balloon launch that day also so were planning on attending.
