Castlewood, Marion and Christiansburg staff (top to bottom) lend their support to the annual PAINT IT PURPLE campaign, which each October raises awareness about Violence Against Women (VAW)  by asking a global audience to "paint" the internet purple using social media (including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs).


Begun by The Pixel Project in 2010, PAINT IT PURPLE also raises funds for participating VAW nonprofits worldwide through special cupcake sales and "Paint it Purple" parties.
