Monday night is for Hospitality—let there be light!

Over 15.8 million hospitality workers in the US have been furloughed or laid-off. We are using light, to give them hope, show them we care, and are here to support them.

Why Purple? The color purple represents the hospitality industry. And, according to color psychology, purple means you are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself – you are the person others come to for help – being needed motivates you.

Why Monday? Monday night is “industry night“ for hospitality workers. It was the one night of the week that hospitality workers could go out with their friends and enjoy the experiences they provided to us the other 6 nights of the week.

Why every Monday? COVID-19 is a long fight. As time goes on the financial and emotional stress will increase—our love and support must also endure.

See below for examples of cities and businesses showing their love. Join us and show your support for hospitality workers by sharing the message and light your windows purple every Monday!
