With so many fantastic awareness days in Australia in 2023, you’ll find opportunities to support local communities, learn about important issues and help drive meaningful change. Mark these in your diary and make a date with doing good.
Wear it Purple Day
Today, we dress loud and proud in purple to show support for rainbow young people. For this year’s event, expect to see thousands of schools, organisations and workplaces taking part, acknowledging LGBTQIA+ youth and celebrating their right to show up as their true selves. It’s official – everyone looks amazing in purple.
R U OK Day
“Are you ok?” Three little words can make a world of difference to someone who’s struggling. At the end of the day, we never really know who’s having a hard time beneath the surface. So, this date is a friendly reminder to check in with those around you. Kick-starting that conversation is a simple step, but it’s one that could change a life.
Australian Organic Awareness Month

September is Australian Organic Awareness Month, encouraging us to choose certiﬁed organic for our health and the environment.
