Color the World Orange™ Day

Category Lifestyle

The first Monday in November is dedicated to bringing awareness to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome with Colour the World Orange Day which was founded in 2014.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known asThe first Monday in November is dedicated to bringing awareness to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome with Colour the World Orange Day which was founded in 2014. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), describes an array of painful conditions that are characterized by a continuing (spontaneous and/or evoked) regional pain that is seemingly disproportionate in time or degree to the usual course of any known trauma or other lesion.  Usually starting in a limb, it manifests as extreme pain, swelling, limited range of motion, and changes to the skin and bones. It may initially affect one limb and then spread throughout the body. The pain of CRPS is continuous but varies in severity.

The sixth-annual Color The World Orange™ Day for CRPS/RSD on 4 November 2019 aims to create awareness of this rare disease and hopefully a better understanding of what it is about. As a real estate company with a passion for the colour orange we will participate in getting the voices heard of those affected.

Visit the CTWO Facebook Page and website for ideas on ways to Colour the World Orange.  The easiest way to get involved is to wear orange on this day and post orange pictures (orange food, orange drinks, orange flowers, orange clothes) to social media with the hashtag:  #CRPSORANGEDAY

At the last count, 130 buildings and bridges around the globe will be lit orange on 4 November 2019 for the sixth-annual Color The World Orange™ CRPS/RSD Awareness - from Las Vegas, Pennsylvania, Texas, New York  and many more cities in the United States to Perth, Brisbane, Logan, Darwin in Australia; from England to Germany!

Let's do our share in South Africa and colour the World Orange!
