How you can Light It Orange?
You can create, or be part of, a local Light It Orange event or fundraiser that brings together your group of friends, or the people in your workplace, school, club, etc.
Together, you can turn your average work or school week into a time of orange fun - go crazy with orange dress ups, orange games and eating a weird assortment of orange treats.
You feel great, knowing that you’re doing something to help victims of abuse.
