Wear Purple

To show support for "wear purple" day, a grass-roots day of support for those who may feel bullied based on their appearance, behavior, or sexual preferences, our blog will simply sport this sporty purple bag.   The bag will be available at the Top Shelf Flea if you wish to show your support for this cause year-round, or, if you just like purple!

A quote from the Facebook page that is the hub of the event:

It’s been decided! On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the LGBT youth who have committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes and schools.


PURPLE represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality.


We want to thank Brittany McMillan for creating this event!

Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and schools.


RIP
Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase, Asher Brown, Cody J. Barker, Harrison Chase Brown, Caleb Nolt, Billy Lucas, Jeanine Blanchette, and Chantal Dube.


Spread The Message. It is important that all this hate be stopped.
