Light It Up Blue 

Last year, people in 142 countries and all seven continents participated, and with your help, we’ll make an even bigger impact for autism awareness this time around.



  • Wear a blue t-shirt and make sure your friends, coworkers, or classmates do, too!
  • Pick up a blue light bulb and swap it in at your home or work
  • Post a picture of yourself holding the Light It Up Blue selfie sign
  • Turn your Facebook or Twitter profile picture blue
  • Tweet autism facts with the hashtag #LIUB
  • Organize a LIUB get-together with some friends to raise money on April 2nd

Whatever you do, make sure you capture your LIUB moments and share them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #LIUB.

April 2nd only comes once a year -- and it’s our big chance to bring autism awareness to millions of people around the world. Let’s make 2016 our biggest year for Light It Up Blue yet.
