Spirit Day 2012

Thu Oct 18, 2012, 10:02 AM
In early October 2010, Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan promulgated the observance of a new commemoration called Spirit Day, the first observance of which took place on October 20, 2010, in which people wear the color purple to show support for LGBT young people who are victims of bullying. Since then it has turned into a global event against bullying, promoted by GLAAD.

This year's Spirit Day is on October 19, and this is what you can do to show your support:

:bulletpurple: Turn your deviantID or your avatar purple!
:bulletpurple: Create Spirit Day artwork and submit it to our Spirit Day Gallery
Submit artwork that encourages love, acceptance, tolerance, empathy, and purple!
:bulletpurple: Show love and support to your fellow deviants!

I have been bullied all my life, but I think these "colour days" are just stupid.
Just saying. :yum:

I can't find anything stupid in raising awareness for a good cause. Even if it contains colour. ;)

No, but I do regard it a bit hypocritical to do so just ONE DAY A YEAR... :shrug:
