Light it Up Blue on April 2 for Autism Speaks!

LightItUp-BLOG

Are you lighting it up blue for autism? Modernica is! Tomorrow is Autism Awareness Day and our LA Showroom will be bathed in blue light as we promote awareness and understanding for autism. You can light it up as well by wearing blue for Autism Awareness Day; find out more at AutismSpeaks.org.

Since 2010, Autism Speaks has celebrated its international “Light It Up Blue” campaign for World Autism Awareness Day. Thousands of iconic landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families affected by autism. Some of these include the Empire State Building and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City, the Willis Tower in Chicago, Universal Studios in Hollywood and Orlando, STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, along with the Niagara Falls and the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
