Lighting Industry Generates $15,000 for the Autism Society of America 

 

Lansdale, PA., December 2021 – The grassroots initiative that called on People in the Lighting Industry to take action to make a positive difference for people who are on the Autism Spectrum has concluded with brilliant results.

The On Line Auction & Donation Campaign has generated $15,000 for the Autism Society of America which is the oldest organization with a mission to improve the lives of people on the Autism Spectrum.

Auction items included beautiful light fixtures from top tier manufacturers like Vode, Louis Poulsen, and Arturo Alvarez. The auction also included experiences that will “Light You Up” like a week’s stay at an off the grid house in Sequoia National Park, a Key West getaway house, a Stress Relief Virtual workshop with Union Yoga, boating for a day with LF Illumination President Loren Kessel, and a Day of Surfing with Award winning Lighting Designer, Sean O’Connor.

Money generated by Lights on the Spectrum will be focused in two areas:

  1. Unemployment rates for people on the Autism Spectrum run about 80%. Lights on the Spectrum intends to make a positive difference by funding the Autism Society of America to promote and expand their services to this population to make successful employment the rule rather than the exception.
  2. Lights on the Spectrum encourages and challenges Lighting Industry organizations, Manufacturers, Rep Agencies, Distributors, Lighting Designers, Showrooms and others to begin the process of creating a Neurodiverse Hiring Program at their company. With the assistance of the Autism Society of America and their nationwide Affiliate Offices and network of resources a brighter future for people on the Autism Spectrum can be realized.
