#PurpleLightUp pledges 2018

Purple Light Up 2018 roll-call

On 3rd December 2018, in line with the annual celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) we will be leading a global celebration of the economic contribution of people with disabilities around the world. Our #PurpleLightUp movement invites networks, education providers, employers and individuals to 'go purple' for the day to show your support.

Buildings are being illuminated purple, websites and logos are adopting purples themes, CEO’s, MP's and senior leaders have been sharing VLOG's of support, awareness events are being delivered, staff will be wearing purple clothes and company Twitter accounts will be changed purple for the day using #PurpleLightUp banners and our Twibbon.

We have organisations and buildings taking part in Africa, Australia, Canada, Holland, Europe, Japan, Middle East, New Zealand, India, Philippines, US and UK and those education providers and employers include: Bank of England, Delsion, CN Tower, Channel 4, Cunard Building, Go Compare, KPMG UK, Merseyside Police, Ministry of Defence, Ruh Global Communications, Shaw Trust, St Georges Hall, St Vincent’s School, Viscardi Centre and the list goes on.
