April is Autism Awareness Month, and Activision has launched a few initiatives to join the cause. Skylanders: Superchargers will be receiving to new characters linked to the "Light It Up Blue" program established by Autism Speaks, an organization striving to support families affected by autism and raise public awareness about the disorder.
The goal of the figures is to get the word out about a disorder that affects 1 in 68 children. In addition to the Skylander figures, Activision launched an employee matching program in order to raise funds for autism awareness.
