Four Seasons Hotel Doha will light up in bright blue on the evening of 1 April 2014 – the first night of Autism Awareness Month and the eve of World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD). In addition, the hotel team will prepare some special amenities for its guests and the recreation team will wear blue shirts to mark the event. These initiatives will be shared on the Light It Up Blue website, launched by Autism Speaks.

We want to show our support for the World Autism Awareness Day and Autism Awareness Month…Together with Autism Speaks and iconic brands around the globe, we hope that our contribution will help towards the further understanding of autism through this global initiative.’
