Autism Awarenes Month!

What are you doing to Light it up Blue?!
I'm making Blue cupcakes for my co-workers. Look Mom, I'm using the decorating kit you got me during the Junior League Silent Auction!
I am an alumnae of Alpha Xi Delta sorority, who's national philanthropy is Autism Speaks.
“The members of Alpha Xi Delta have embraced our families along with our cause,” said Ann Gibbons, Executive Director, National Capital Area at Autism Speaks.  "Their contribution to research funding is phenomenal.  What strikes parent after parent, however, when they meet the women at our events, is the outpouring of kindness and acceptance towards our children.  Autism can be a very isolating condition, and the Alpha Xis go out of their way to embrace us and our families.  That in itself is priceless." 

If you were in a sorority, what was your philanthropy? What did/do you do to continue that cause?
