Autism is the fastest growing serious developmental disability in the U.S., affecting every 1 in 110 American children. For the third year, Lindt has partnered with Autism Speaks, the global leader in autism advocacy, to help provide hope to millions of families impacted by autism. Lindt will donate to Autism Speaks 10¢ with each purchase of a Lindt Gold Bunny, $1 with every Lindt eCard sent, and $1 with every new Lindt Facebook fan.*
On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.
We’re aiming to light the world blue all throughout April — city by city, town by town — by taking action to raise autism awareness in our communities.
P.S.: Home Depot is selling Autism Speaks blue light bulbs in honor of Autism Awareness Month
