April is National Autism Awareness Month. At Topbulb, we have a personal relationship with autism, as one of our coworker’s sons has autism. You can read his personal story at the Northwest Indiana Times website.
So we wanted to do something special this year to help bring visibility to the issue of autism. The 2016 Autism Awareness Month represents a new paradigm in how we can treat people who have autism.
Encouraging Autism Acceptance
The Autism Society is encouraging acceptance and inclusion:
Let’s embrace a new perspective. For over 50 years we have worked in communities (both large and small) to ensure our actions, through our services and programming, supported all individuals living with autism. Let’s expand this work to focus on the rest of us – ensuring acceptance and inclusion in schools and communities that results in true appreciation of the unique aspects of all people. We want to get one step closer to a society where those with ASDs are truly valued for their unique talents and gifts.
Here are some stats from the Autism Society.
Autism Awareness Blue Light Bulbs
While the symbol for autism awareness is a puzzle in the shape of a ribbon, blue lights are also a symbol.
And at Topbulb, if there’s one thing we know, it’s lights. Show your support for Autism Awareness Month with any number and type of blue light bulbs.
This low wattage incandescent bulb will create a blue glow showing your support.
We also carry blue CFL bulbs. Our most popular is a spiral blue bulb that will fit in any table or floor lamp socket.
For the most fancy variety, we also carry a color-changing LED strip kit that you can use throughout the year to show your support for any cause. We know how popular green was for veterans, and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month when pink lighting will be appropriate.

Go All Out With Blue String Lights
Regular bulbs and rope lighting not your thing? Then we suggest grabbing some LED string lights. They aren’t just for Christmas anymore, and you can hang them around around your garage, porch, or business. We carry blue LED string lights in the following types:

Supporting Autism the Topbulb Way
When we learned it was Autism Awareness Month, we wanted to do something special for our customers. In a number of instances, we’ve lowered prices on blue lights, so you can stock up, give a bulb to a friend, or get a CFL or LED version that you can keep on all year without worrying about it burning out.
We will be donating a portion of all blue light bulb sales made in the month of April to autism charities.
So, please join us, and consider putting a blue light bulb in your home or office to show your awareness of, appreciation for, and acceptance of those people who have autism.
