    I was trying to find out if there was a specific color set aside for scoliosis awareness and I could not find one. I am wondering if anyone has an idea of how we might go about creating the awareness color for scoliosis?

    Ok, the wristbands will be green I believe, with the three s shaped curves like in their logo.
    Unfortunately SSO will not be proceeding with plans for wristbands any time in the near future.Our first priority is to deliver an improved support site for our members.To develop and distribute wristbands would deplete our funds and it is totally contrary to site policy to ask our members for funding.We do however have some exciting plans in the pipeline and we look forward to making some announcements in the near future.All will be revealed shortly.

    I'm not just referring to the wristband colors but just the official color for "scoliosis awareness" like if we wanted to do the ribbon thing and whatnot. Who decides what color belongs to what awareness? I think blue seems appropriate only since most scoliosis things I see are in blue.

    That would be great! Then we wouldn't have to worry about the donation issue we were having! I was looking there last night to find out information on how to get an official color. If those become the official wristbands, then no doubt will that color become the official awareness color. I was looking into getting ribbon pins made but I need a color!

    Well Sins, you are in luck! I emailed the NSF and they responded back stating that the official color is green! So there you have it!
