WORLD AUTISM DAY: Wear Blue Today
Posted April 2nd, 2014 @ 7:30am

 

For the seventh straight year, autism organizations around the world will celebrate the day with fundraising and awareness-raising events. In addition to people wearing blue, many landmarks like the Empire State Building, Niagara Falls and the Sydney Opera House will be illuminated with blue lights.  

According to a recent study, autism rates have more than doubled since 2000 and now one in every 68 eight-year-old children are believed to be affected by autism.
