Action Light it up blue at VIVO!

As in the previous year, VIVO! Lublin supports the campaign Light It Up Blue organized in Poland by the SYNAPSIS Foundation.
 
Light It Up Blue (Zaświeć się na niebiesko) is a worldwide action organized since 2011 by the American organization Autism Speaks, and propagated in Poland by the SYNAPSIS Foundation. 

The initiative is focused on expressing solidarity with people affected by autism by lighting up blue lights in buildings of public and commercial institutions on the 2nd of April, the World Autism Awareness Day.
 
People with autism have problems with speaking, perceiving the world, understanding social relationships. Although it is the most common developmental disorder (affects 1 in 59 children!), the awareness of autism in society is still very low, and people affected by it often experience hurtful
comments and cruel behaviors.
 
In a gesture of solidarity with people affected by autism, on 2nd of April at 18:00 our VIVO! Lublin Shopping Center will light up in blue.
