Purple your profile for World Cancer Day

Seeing purple on social media?  There's a good reason why: Tuesday, February 4 is World Cancer Day, and Chevrolet is partnering with the American Cancer Society for the Purple Roads initiative, which encourages people to make their profiles purple to stand strong against cancer.

Purple is the color of cancer survivors, so Chevrolet is asking Facebook and Twitter users to "purple their profiles" using a tool on their website.  Chevrolet will contribute $1 to the American Cancer Society for every purple profile picture, up to $1 million!

"Action is the strongest way to improve the lives of those with cancer today and help find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Help us finish the fight and purple your profile now," Chevrolet's website reads.

You can also join the Purple Roads initiative by volunteering your time.  The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program provides transportation for people who have cancer and do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.

By giving a few hours of your week, you can make a lasting difference so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.  Click here to find out how to volunteer, or call (800) 277-2345 for more info.

Chevrolet also ran a 60-second ad called Life during the Super Bowl reminding viewers that Tuesday is World Cancer Day, and highlighting their support of the American Cancer Society's Purple Road initiative.

SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS TO ASK THEM TO DO IT TOO!

    It was commuter confusion out on Interstate 66 Monday morning. Drivers heading eastbound towards Washington D.C. wound up seeing their traffic lanes suddenly turn into a mess. Lane stripes somehow pulled away from the road surface and created a mess of tangled tape and lanes that didn't make sense.
