The Pixel Project Paint It Purple 2011 Blog Carnival

For the past seven weeks, The Pixel Project and its supporters have been painting the Internet purple because ‘it’s time to stop violence against women together.”

“Paint It Purple” is an annual global campaign that was initially created in 2010 by The Pixel Project to raise the profile of the USA’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month worldwide.

However, starting from 2011, as part of The Pixel Project’s commitment to stopping all forms of Violence Against Women (VAW), we have extended the campaign to 24 November which is the eve of the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women and the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence campaign.

“Paint It Purple” benefits the cause to end VAW because it raises worldwide awareness about all forms of VAW and it raises funds for The Pixel Project, our partners and participating VAW organisations around the world.

Gathered here are a collection of blogposts that have been made during the Paint It Purple campaign. Some feature recipes, others are heartfelt emotional stories from survivors of violence against women, and others are blog posts that help us spread the word about our campaign.

We are so thankful for all the organisations, businesses and individuals who helped us spread the word about The Pixel Project, the Paint It Purple campaign and our efforts to end violence against women around the world. Only together can we make a difference.

It’s time to stop violence against women. Together.

– Tim Busbey, “Paint It Purple” Blog Editor
