responses to color the world orange™ 2017

 

Thank you so much for bringing awareness to CRPS. I started tearing up when I saw [the IPL building] lit orange, because it means so much to me and everyone else who goes through this. It means there is hope that the word will be spread more each year!
— Meghan in Indiana
I feel that finally we are being heard!
— Lori from California about the Color The World Orange™ billboards in Times Square in New York
Thank you for all that the organization does to promote and bring awareness to the world. I was recently introduced to this syndrome after being diagnosed and the information provided by the Facebook page and website have helped me to understand that even though I was diagnosed early I can still be affected and help to change things.
— Sarah in Louisiana
Color The World Orange™ means so much to me. When I was diagnosed with CRPS, I had no idea what CRPS was. I felt so alone and helpless. I was in for the fight of my life and had many amazing health care professionals helping me along the way but I still felt alone. Color The World Orange™ provides me with so much hope and it is wonderful to see the thousands of people participating in this event around the world. I don’t feel alone anymore and I know that there are so many people out there supporting me, and everyone else that suffers from CRPS. Color The World Orange™ has helped me connect with other people with CRPS in my city and this has created a great support system. I can’t thank those involved with the Color The World Orange™ initiative enough for the support, hope, and awareness for CRPS. Thank You!
— Krista in Canada

Color The World Orange™ 2016


color the world orange™ 2016

November 7, 2016

The third-annual Color The World Orange™ held on Nov. 7, 2016 was the biggest yet!

Forty-nine buildings, bridges and landmarks in four countries, including Niagara Falls and the fountains in Trafalgar Square in London turned orange for Color The World Orange™ for CRPS/RSD awareness. See below for the full list of lightings.

A supporter ran the NYC Marathon and another supporter ran the Chicago Marathon in honor of Color The World Orange™.

There were 71 proclamations granted in the US, including 23 from state governors. Two proclamations were granted in Canada.

There were multiple news articles and TV news clips about the third-annual Color The World Orange™!

Color The World Orange™ was even added to the National Day Calendar!

Supporters raised more than $9,115 for the RSDSA to be used for research.

Around the world supporters wore orange to bring awareness to CRPS/RSD on Color The World Orange™, tweeting and posting pictures to Instagram with the hashtag #CRPSORANGEDAY™. Friends, family, colleagues and classmates all wore orange, hosting events and meetups. Some supporters even decorated their houses with orange lights to bring awareness.

All of these events were made possible due to the hard work of our wonderful supporters!

 

Thank you to these buildings, bridges and landmarks for turning orange for Color The World Orange™!
