October Awareness Campaigns - holy crap!

According to Wikipedia, there are LOTS of things to commemorate each month, all over the world, throughout the entire year!  I had to add Canada's National Brain Tumour Awareness Month to October's list, so I am sure there are other causes that have been missed.   

Maybe we need an awareness month to spread awareness about Awareness Months.

(In 2005, my Mother-in-law died of a brain tumour, to read about this type of hidden cancer and her story, please visit my post here).

Here is a list of Wikipedia's October Awareness Month Campaigns: 
Are you aware of any causes that have been missed?  Comment below with a link to a creditable website for the cause and I'll add it to Wikipedia for you.

  1. I believe Down Syndrome is purple if I am not mistaken :)

    1. I wish I could add to the ribbon image, unfortunately it's a jpg I got off the internet - could be a few missing.

      Thanks for the info though!

    2. No worries. I guess they classify it as Children with Disabilities. It should really have a Ribbon of its own like Autism. :)

  3. There may be more that could be added to the list but unfortunately I'm not quite aware of such days and what colour needs to be associated with them.
