This special day was created in 2017 to promote awareness for a variety of charitable causes, including education, poverty, refugees, and disease. So, put on your brightest and most vibrant orange garments and get ready to celebrate Color the World Orange Day on the first Monday of November! It’s a great opportunity to show support for those in need while having some fun with friends and family.

This day is also devoted to bringing awareness to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome CRPS, also called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or RSD. It is a disorder that causes lasting pain usually in an arm or leg, and it shows up after an injury, stroke, or even heart attack. But the severity of pain is typically worse than the original injury itself. It’s caused by injury to tissue with no related nerve damage.
