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 a record breaking 108 locations across the globe light up in 2023, and our volunteers are working hard to secure even more in 2024.
