Light Up Events

Light up the world purple and yellow!

Light up events involve key landmarks in a town or city, which are regularly lit up in different colours for special occasions. If you know of a landmark that does light up for causes, please consider submitting an application and notifying us at To help with your application, we have prepared a letter of request to get you started.

Letter of Request

We had more than 80 locations across the globe light up in 2020, and our volunteers are working hard to secure even more in 2021.
