Food Network “Lights It Up Blue” for Autism Today

autism awarenessNotice something different on Food Network this morning? Today, Food Network and Cooking Channel are participating in the Autism Speaks: Light It Up Blue campaign, an annual global initiative that raises awareness about the growing public health concern that is autism. That means they’re taking the logos you see on television and turning them blue for one day.

“Autism impacts an estimated 1 in every 110 children in the United States, and through the extraordinary support of such wide-ranging cable television networks we are raising awareness and building support by delivering an important message about autism to millions of people watching television today,” said Robert Wright, co-founder of Autism Speaks, in a press release.

Autism Awareness Day has partners in 180 cities and 35 countries around the world — they’ll all turn iconic landmarks blue for the day, including New York City’s Empire State Building.

Food Network invites you to Light It Up Blue today. Find out how here.

    I leave a response when I like reading an article on a website or if I have got something of value to chip in to a discussion. And on this particular article I was frankly moved enough to leave a remark ;) I do have some questions for you if it’s allright?. Could it be simply me or do some of these comments come across as coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list every one of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile? Thanks!
