What is LIUB?
Each April 2nd, Autism Speaks and Autism Speaks Canada celebrate the start of its signature campaign, Light It Up Blue, along with the international autism community in recognition of UN sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day and April, World Autism Month.
Thousands of iconic landmarks and buildings join the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities around the world to “light blue” in support of people living with autism. Autism-friendly events and educational activities take place all month to increase understanding and acceptance and further support people with autism.
Can I use the LIUB logo for my event/fundraiser?
- The logo must remain intact. You may not change or add anything to it
- You may not place the logo on any product or use for selling purposes
Can my charity participate in LIUB? Can we raise funds for autism-related resources?
