I never even thought about having our very own "ribbon"! I just may have to google it myself and check it out. I'm sure that there are all kinds of merchandise that you could purchase to benefit The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America and other groups supporting us! You guys are brilliant! Why shouldn't we have a ribbon? It just never dawned on me! I'll let you know if I find anything out:)

Have a good weekend!

I just googled it...According to the Awareness/Cause Ribbon Chart:

"Purple Ribbon-This color is a symbol of pancreatic cancer, domestic violence, religious tolerance, animal abuse, the victims of 9/11 including the police and firefighters, Crohn's disease and colitis, cystic fibrosis, lupus, and fibromyalgia."

Take care-

I have thought that brown would be a better color too.

So true! Yes, it is definitely purple. I have looked for awareness ribbons and have found some helpful resources. I suggest doing a google search, and even ebay. I found some really pretty sterling silver jewelry that I love.
