I don't know who to approach at Google, but you know how they change the lettering for the name for different events/holidays (e.g. The Olympics, artists' birthdays)? Maybe they can do one for Dyscalculia Day? For people who aren't familiar with what I'm talking about, they have one today for the collider. Since it may change before everyone gets to read it, I saved the picture, link.

It takes you to this list of resources:
Maybe something with distorted numbers for Dyscalculia Day? I know when I see the page has changed for one of those days and I don't know why, I'll click on the link which brings back topic relevant search results on the holiday or person featured. With all the Google users around, that would be a fairly large potential audience. eoffG, let me know if you want me to look into that more. I know we have some very talented artists, maybe one of them can come up with a design. I'm more of a stick figure person myself! :D It'd actually be kind of ironic if they did help us out as Google's based on a mathematics term! ;)
Another thing I can think of would be to let politicians know. Sometimes in the US, the Congressional Reps will read proclamations for certain days on the floor.
