Shine a (blue) light on autism (video)

Join Fletcher Prince and Shine a Light on Autism on April 1

Each year that we have been in business, Fletcher Prince has completed pro bono projects for area communications organizations.  This year, we are turning our pro bono focus to raising awareness about autism and providing resources to parents and caregivers of children with autism.

Please join Fletcher Prince as we help raise awareness of autism, a developmental disability that affects 1/110 children in the U.S.

Here are some easy ways to show your support during April, Autism Awareness Month.

  • Shine a blue light at your business or residence starting April 1.
  • Wear blue on April 1
  • Welcome families and individuals living with autism into your lives, schools, and workplaces.
  • Refer friends living with autism to free resources, such as Living Well With Autism.
  • Be a friend to a child or adult living with autism.

In addition to launching a new website for parents and caregivers of children living with autism on April 1, we will honor people who support autism by featuring supporters on the home page of our website during the month of April.  To participate in this aspect of this awareness campaign, upload a photo of your home or workplace, displaying a blue light for autism, on Friday, April 1 or Saturday, April 2 to our Facebook Page.  Provide us with your URL of choice and we will recognize you and link to the URL (e.g., for a business website or personal website) from our homepage in April.

Please participate, and thank you for helping raise awareness of autism and its impact.
