Since the early 1970s, awareness ribbons have been recognized and used to raise awareness of diseases and causes. However, so many designations have been made that it can be confusing to know what color represents the cause closest to your heart.
|What Color is Your Awareness Ribbon?|
Cystic Fibrosis -purple awareness ribbon
Organ Donation -green awareness ribbon
Transplant -green awareness ribbon
Lung Transplant -green with a butterfly as the symbol designating the transplant is specifically 'lung'
I've been honored over the years to also design custom awareness bracelets for a variety of related causes that include the following causes and nationally recognized awareness ribbon color(s):
Pulmonary Fibrosis -red and blue awareness ribbons
Asthma -gray awareness ribbon
Behcet's Disease -light blue awareness ribbon
If you do not see your cause listed, please check out the full and comprehensive Awareness Colors and Meanings article or the Awareness Ribbons by Cause Color article both by Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry.
I hope this information has helped guide you in understanding some of the nationally recognized awareness ribbon colors for the cause(s) closest to your heart. And if you don't find your cause listed, please visit the articles, I'm sure you will find them there.
