How Can I Participate? 
Wear purple on Thursday April 11th ​
Take a group photo of your friends, classroom, office or family wearing purple. Then enter our photo challenge by posting your photo on social media and including the hashtag #IApurpleup. An annual trophy is given to the individual or organization that submits the best photo showing people wearing purple and supporting military youth. ​
Change your Facebook PROFILE or BANNER to a MOMC picture for the entire month of April.  
Call our office for a Purple Up Promotion Kit to hand out to classrooms and offices. The kit includes MOMC info flyers, Purple Up pins, Purple Up wrist bands and information about the Child & Youth Program. ​
Call our office to inquire about a CYP Coordinator speaking at your event about the importance of supporting military-connected youth. ​
Write a letter to a Military-connected family or youth to show your appreciation for their service. 
Call our office with any additional ideas or questions (515.727.3064). ​
