Today April 2nd, is National Autism Awareness day. Many of you know our good friend Sensei Dave who has an organization called Eli Hops for his son Eli who has Autism. I have a 3 year old son, Logan, who also has Autism and a couple of other YoYo Players I have spoken to have children with Autism.
On April 2nd websites, sky scrapers, and cities around the world go blue to bring awareness to Autism. Today, many yoyo websites, yoyo facebook pages, including YYE will change a part of their website blue in honor of this day. I would also like to see if we can get everyone to take a picture with a blue YoYo if you have one or make a video with a blue yoyo and post it on here as well. I know it would mean a lot to those of us who have the amazing joy and the occasional struggle with raising a child with autism. You can learn more by going to www.lightitupblue.org. I will also be lighting up my house blue tonight with my LED par cans and will post pictures of it too. Thanks in advance for joining me!
