Total Care Plumbing is a family business, and as such we offer our support to a charity whose charter is to help the millions of families impacted by Autism. Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
As part of its fourth-annual Light It Up Blue (LIUB) campaign, a global initiative to raise funds and increase awareness of autism, more than 7,000 iconic structures and landmarks in 90 countries are shining a bright blue spotlight on autism. Participating landmarks include the Empire State Building and George Washington Bridge in New York City, Niagara Falls in Canada and Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
This year, Autism Speaks continues its quest to make Light It Up Blue bigger, bluer and better than ever before, by asking individuals, retailers and corporations worldwide to proudly shine a light on autism throughout the month of April – Autism Awareness Month – in their own personal way.
Supporters can join the initiative by participating in any of three ways:
Illuminate: Change your white bulbs to blue. Light up your home, business, school, place of worship or even your website blue to show your support.
Donate: Text Autism to 25383 to donate $10 to Autism Speaks* or make a donation on LightItUpBlue.org
Advocate: Take action as Autism Speaks call on President Trump and Congress to develop and implement a comprehensive national plan to address autism. Sign their petition on LightItUpBlue.org.
