Purple Landmarks

An exciting part of the Put Your Purple On campaign is the lighting of municipal landmarks. Help us paint the country purple. Last year twenty municipal landmarks across the Canada and one in the US and one in Qatar were lit in purple in April. This year we’re hoping for even more but we need your help! Think about what you could have lit in purple in your community (bridges, buildings, signs, towers) and use our sample letter to make your request. Get a group of colleagues together along with our “Purple Pride” poster and then snap photos featuring these landmarks. Be sure to send them to marketing@cdha.ca.
