By participating, individuals and organizations can offer comfort and encouragement to CRPS patients while also advocating for more attention to this painful condition.

History of Color the World Orange Day

Color the World Orange Day started in 2014 to raise awareness for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This chronic pain condition often develops after an injury and can affect any limb.

The initiative encourages people to wear orange, the chosen color symbolizing hope and strength. The goal is to highlight the struggles of those living with CRPS and to promote understanding and support for better treatments and research​.

Each year, the first Monday in November marks Color the World Orange Day. Supporters participate by wearing orange, organizing events, and sharing information on social media.

Famous landmarks around the world are lit up in orange to draw attention to the cause. This global effort unites the CRPS community, encouraging public engagement and increasing visibility for this often misunderstood condition​.

The creation of Color the World Orange Day has significantly impacted the awareness of CRPS. By spreading knowledge about the condition, the day aims to foster empathy and support.
