Every October, Children’s Aid Societies, in partnership with social service organizations, government, and community members across Ontario, run a provincial awareness campaign called Dress Purple Day. On October 27, we dress in purple to show families facing challenges that we care, and we can help. Its aim is to raise awareness about the supports that are available and how to access them. It also encourages all Ontarians to do their part in supporting vulnerable families in their local community.
What can you do? Help us to spread this message! Create a video, join the conversation online at #DressPurpleDay2020 and #IDressPurpleBecause, and wear purple on October 27 to show that you are part of the community that cares for children, youth, and families.
