Spirit Day is Coming

Tue Oct 16, 2012, 9:00 AM

Spirit Day

Save the date! Spirit Day is Friday, October 19th! Which means you can show your support for the LGBT community by doing a number of things, from raising awareness through articles, artwork, literature or simply sporting the team colors on and/or offline. What colors?


The color that represents Spirit Day is purple! Which brings us to the challenge portion of Spirit Day!

The Purple Challenge

The Purple Challenge is simple, go one day (October 19th) using only one color during your daily adventure on deviantART:  purple. Here are some places you can pimp out the color purple:

:bulletpurple: Your avatar. Use a simple photo editing program to temporarily turn your avatar purple.
:bulletpurple: A featured deviation on your page.
:bulletpurple: A collection of purple deviations.
:bulletpurple: Your devID.
:bulletpurple: Use only purple emoticons! :meow:
:bulletpurple: In journal skins.
:bulletpurple: In a deviation!

Everyone is widely encouraged to participate and suggest deviations related to the occasion to the ^Community Volunteers. See the following FAQ for a complete list:

From Around the Community

Spirit Day is coming.
This is a subject that is close to me, for lots of obvious reasons, but that's not important. What's important is that you reach out. Doesn't matter how much or how little, you don't have to quantify your actions. Just be in the know, be aware, lend a hand. Make the world a better place for it.
  Spirit DaySpirit Day is coming! :love:  On Friday 19th October, the world goes purple in support of the fight against sexuality related bullying. Nichrysalis already posted a great article about Spirit Day and how you can participate :squee:
There is also a category specially for Spirit Day related deviations, in Community Projects > Awareness. You can already submit to the Spirit Day 2012 category - so collect your favourite art tools and show your support :dalove:
Thanks to the groups shown to the right for requesting to submit this journal :meow:

This is my college color, so about 90% of campus was already wearing it. I hardly ever wear purple normally though, so I was happy to have things to wear yesterday. :)
