Ontario Dress Purple Day, which is led by Children’s Aid Societies across the province, is a day of action to raise awareness about the community’s responsibility to look after children and youth. This year, on October 27th, communities across Ontario will go purple and collectively speak up to share the message that children and youth have a right to safety and well-being and that help is available. As key partners in keeping kids safe, OACAS and Children’s Aid Societies partner with boards of education, schools, and child care centres and homes to make Ontario Dress Purple Day a meaningful event.
The tag line and key message associated with Ontario Dress Purple Day is, “I dress purple to show I’m here for families.” The social media hashtag for this day of action is #IDressPurpleBecause.
