In addition to spreading the word on-air, The View has been tweeting anti-bullying information and resources all day long:


Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Conseulos donned purple on The Kelly & Michael Show, too:

NBC affiliates, local and national, including CNBC and MSNBC, also went purple yesterday morning on air and online while Emmy-nominated actress and leading transgender advocate Laverne Cox was busy lighting the Empire State Building purple.

Spirit Day, which took place, October 16, inspires millions to wear purple or "go purple" online in a united stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBT youth. Each year, Spirit Day draws the participation of celebrities, corporations, media outlets, sports leagues, schools, faith institutions, national landmarks, and individuals. Spirit Day is made possible by the generous support of its national partners PepsiCo and Wells Fargo, as well as official partners Comcast-NBCUniversal and Google, and supporting partner American Eagle Outfitters.
