Lighting The World Purple for Orphans
This year, The Stars Foundation and its International Coalition of Global Leaders for Orphans are calling on government leaders, municipalities, mayors, churches, civic groups, and schools to Light the World Purple in any way that works within their locale, for the purposes of bringing awareness to the plight of the most vulnerable children in the world.
Starting with Arkansas State University with a Bell Tower lit up for purple for World Orphans Day, and subsequent towns in Arkansas joining the movement, we are now expanding across Tennessee and beyond.
In America, Theme parks, homes for children, and youth villages are lighting their facilities in purple lights. The Memphis Bridge is going to be lit in purple.
We are delighted that Chairman of World Orphans Day Africa, the Prime Minister of eSwatini, Themba Masuku, is also impacting the continent of Africa by inviting other heads of state to join this movement! Look for ways that your groups can do the same in your community to bring awareness to World Orphans Day.
