This is our 3rd annual Light Up the Night Challenge.
See the video http://youtu.be/O4Bzevj6WGA
The challenge is to get as many buildings as possible in your country to light up with one of the three colors used on May 12th: blue, purple or green. We want public buildings such as City Halls, national places of import such as Niagara Falls, and individual homes to all light up to spread awareness about the following illnesses:

  • Blue for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) sometimes shown as ME/CFS
  • Purple for Fibromyalgia (FM)
  • Green for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) or Lyme

There is also a contest afoot in order to encourage participation… see the Facebook page for details!

    I hear Houston will lite up that night. Some cities might not support this for tall structures due to aircraft risks. One option is to use a color filter if white lite, and have two people, one take picture normal, then one put blue color filter using cellophane if low power light, never touching lite, or color filter for $10 used for stage lights. Color bldg blue, take photo and take away, post photo to Utube, Facebook, ME Action etc and ideally local paper. Consider a slogan for this like “Houston Blue until they Cure M.E., Myalgic Encephalomyelitis”
    Please put blue lights on your porch, blue ribbons around the ole Oak tree etc.

  3. I am researching light up the night for our magazine, and I wanted to see if you had a list of infrastructures which were illuminated this year, and any pictures you might be willing to share for publication. If you can email me then I will not miss your reply. Thanks
