ZBB is happy to support our friends at Autism Speaks and Camp Southern Ground for World Autism Day!
"Camp Southern Ground is proud to partner with Autism Speaks to make sure the voices of our uniquely gifted children are heard," says Rob Parker, CEO of Camp Southern Ground.
Camp Southern Ground is Zac's life's work, "Weíve got 500 acres dedicated to building a state-of-the-art facility at which kids of all abilities will learn teamwork and life skills, while providing cutting-edge treatments for children with neurobehavioral disorders like autism, Asperger syndrome, ADD and dyslexia," says Zac.
Each April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates Light It Up Blue along with the international autism community, in commemoration of the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day. Light It Up Blue is a unique global initiative that kicks-off Autism Awareness Month and helps raise awareness about autism. In honor of this historic day, many iconic landmarks, hotels, sporting venues, concert halls, museums, bridges and retail stores are among the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities that take part to Light It Up Blue.
For our friends in Atlanta, 191 Peachtree will be lit with a number of other buildings, including the aquarium! If you would like to support the cause to help send a message to Washington that a national plan and strategy is needed to address autism, please sign here to contribute.
