PURPLE PICTURE COMPETITION: ALL MONTH
We are challenging local groups (agencies, school programs, sports teams, etc.) to send in a picture of your group wearing purple or holding things that are purple. You have the creative control to make your picture as humorous, aesthetically pleasing, and awash in purple as you wish. Send all submissions to Annie Mae Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced on October 30th, so grab your friends and observe Domestic Violence Awareness Month with us!.
