The Carlton Football Club in conjunction with Melbourne-based Irabina Autism Services, will be painting Melbourne and the MCG blue today, Thursday 2 April, as part of World Autism Day.

World Autism Day is a global initiative that sees countries throughout the world light up landmark buildings and iconic structures in blue, in support of Autism awareness throughout the world. Structures that have turned blue in support include:

·      The Eiffel Tower in Paris
·      The Empire State Building in New York
·      The Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
·      Tokyo Tower, Japan
·      The Princes Palace, Monaco

Ahead of Carlton's bid to paint the 'G navy blue in the season opener against Richmond players took time out to support the work of Irabina Autism Services.

Irabina Autism Services is Australia’s largest Autism-specific early intervention service specialising in delivering programs for children and adolescents living with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Based in Melbourne, they are doing some fantastic work and are truly making a positive impact on lives.

One in 50 children today are diagnosed with the disorder - placing considerable pressure on families, schools and communities to support and accommodate for those living with Autism.
