Purple Day

ANY DAY CAN BE PURPLE DAY - BUT OFFICIALLY IT'S MARCH 26

 

What is Purple Day?

Purple Day aims to encourage people to talk about epilepsy and to remind those who live with seizures, that they are not alone.

Founded in 2008 by a young Canadian school girl Cassidy Megan, Purple Day** has become a global campaign dedicated to increasing epilepsy awareness worldwide.

Purple is the official color of epilepsy and PURPLE DAY aims to encourage people to talk about epilepsy and to remind those who live with seizures, that they are not alone. To support epilepsy awareness, we encourage you to ‘GO PURPLE’ to support and increase awareness and understanding of epilepsy.

What can you do to support Purple Day?

Australians can show their support by hosting a Purple Day fundraising event at school, with friends or at work, buying merchandise or making a donation to raise epilepsy awareness.

**If you are a school, working towards becoming an Epilepsy Smart School – ANY DAY can be purple day. This will enable you to complete stage 3 to become an Epilepsy Smart School. www.epilepsysmartschools.org.au

To fundraise for Epilepsy Australia and make it even easier, we've partnered with Everyday Hero to give you the ability to create your own online fundraising page. In just minutes you can build and customise your page, then start sharing the link with your friends, family and colleagues and asking them to make a donation. Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors.
