The Zonta Club of Myrtle Beach, USA, asked the owner of the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel and the ferris wheel to light up both wheels in orange on 10 December in honor of Human Rights Day.
The day is also the last day of the UN’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, observed by Zonta International. By lighting up the shoreline orange, the people of the Myrtle Beach area, including those on ships and boats sailing the Atlantic, will become energetic and filled with happiness rather than despair.
The UN chose the color orange as it symbolizes peace. It brings out the best in people, and humanity, as it shines its light on human rights enjoyed by all, as we are all one family.
The owner agreed to the club’s request and supports the Zonta Says NO message.
