Last month, SayNO – UNiTE to End Violence Against Women announced its first action, and it’s something that all of us can help them do and promote.
Young people around the world want to claim 25th of every month, starting with 25 July and leading up to 25 November, which is observed as the International Day to End Violence against Women, as an Orange Day, a day for taking action.
They are asking everyone – men, women, boys and girls, young and old – to wear something orange on 25 July. It can be a t-shirt, a scarf, a tie, a dress, or any other attire that you wear! As more of us start wearing the color orange on 25th of every month, we will generate interest and spark conversations about the issue.
Ultimately, we want people to start thinking and talking about how to end violence against women and girls. Save the image and the date and show your support by posting the orange ribbon on your social walls!
Butterflies, I think it would be great to show our support by flexing our “wings”!
Here’s what we can do:
Take a picture of orange wings (you can either wear the wings in the photo, have them painted on a shirt, or do a face painting-let your imagination run wild!!) -and post them to the Say No-UNite FB Page, or you can post them directly to the Butterfly Bridge page OR you can email to us and we will post them for you.
I think this is a good way to let the world know that the butterflies are here and ready to bridge the gap!!!
The 24th of this month is just 3 days away, so let’s fly!!!
