Kids will take to the streets across the country on Wednesday night for trick-or-treating, but one group is letting people know they may see some different color pumpkins or candy buckets this Halloween.

In a post now shared more than 25,000 times, Alicia Plumer said if you see someone who appears to be an adult carrying a blue bucket, it means they have autism.

"While he has the body of a 21 year old, he loves Halloween. Please help us keep his spirit alive & happy," the post reads. "So when you see the blue bucket share a piece of candy. Spread awareness! These precious people are not 'too big' to trick or treat."
