Post Blue
Turn your Facebook and/or Twitter profile picture blue to promote awareness, here's how: selfies, individual, or group photos, showing how you are lighting it up blue, on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtags #LIUB and #AASC. Share and Tweet autism facts with the hashtag #LIUB.

Make Your Business Blue
Light building exteriors blue. Feature blue window displays. Ask coworkers and staff to wear blue (ties, scarves, shirts, etc.). Get creative! For example, an ice cream shop or bakery could offer special blue treats for the month of April, boutiques can offer discounts on blue items, etc.
