Purple Announces Community Campaign: Dream Bigger

Purple announced a new community campaign called Dream Bigger ( The campaign honors 10 Trailblazers in the Deaf Community from across the country that have had tremendous impact in the areas of sports, civil rights, politics, business, language, community, medicine, art, and education.

Over the next three months, there will be local events (across the US) in the communities of the Trailblazers honoring their commitment to the Deaf Community. In addition to honoring the Trailblazer, Purple will have their new P3 netbooks on site to show attendees their latest products, specifically designed for the deaf and hard-of-hearing market.

In October, all the Trailblazers will convene in Washington D.C. for the 'Trailblazers of the Year' Gala dinner where one of the ten Trailblazers will be awarded $10,000 in their name given to the deaf charity of their choice.

By visiting the Dream Bigger website, visitors can view videos from all the Trailblazers, find information on the local events and vote for who they think the Trailblazer of the Year should be.
