Johnson & Johnson supports LGBT youth for #SpiritDay

Joining the international, united stand against bullying this Spirit Day is the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.

In support of LGBT youth, more than 20 of the company's brands will change their logos to purple. Check their websites, Facebook, and Twitter, for Spirit Day shout outs about ending bullying.

Spirit Day continues the mission of their Care With PRIDE™ campaign, a collaboration with Spirit Day partner organization PFLAG,  dedicated to making schools safe for all students and eradicating bullying by fostering a supportive climate through education and training programs.
