How can you be a part of Put on Purple Day? It’s simple – wear purple, tell others why and let them know where to donate. This year, we are dedicating Put on Purple Day to the Michael Jon Barlin Pediatric Research Program, which will support research to address the key issues relevant to treatment options for childhood lupus research.

Change your profile picture to show your purple pride and share your lupus story with the #PutOnPurple hashtag. Follow and tag us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram so we can see your efforts.


Support our efforts to advance lupus research by making a donation. We can’t fight this disease alone, we need your help.

For most of us, a PJ Day sounds like a luxury, but for those with lupus, it’s too often a necessity due to their disease. PJ Day is a way to honor and support the many people with lupus while also raising funds. Join the movement and start your own PJ Day or support the RNS Society efforts and make a donation to the Lupus Foundation of America.

This holiday is meant to give taxpayers in the United States a day to relax after Tax Day, April 16th each year.
