Purple Day

 

PURPLE DAY : SATURDAY, MARCH 26th

Purple Day was founded by Cassidy Megan. A young girl who through her own experiences with epilepsy, felt it was important to get people talking about epilepsy. Since its inception in 2008, Purple Day has grown to be an international effort.  Working to promote awareness, while reaching out to others living with epilepsy, Purple Day has become a day that strengthens community.

What can YOU do to participate?

If you have school age children, talk with them and their teachers as well, about creating an Epilepsy Awareness Display in their classrooms. Purple is the official colour, so a classroom can be decorated in everything Purple> pick a day in March and organize the students to come to school wearing purple. Create a fund raising event as well as an awareness raising event.

For businesses and/or stores, decorate your storefront windows or reception areas in purple. Create a fund raiser. Remember HeadWay has Epilepsy Awareness posters, so give us a call to make arrangements to pick them up. As well as our poster package, HeadWay also has purple bracelets, purple pencils and Seizure First Aid Cards to give away to participating schools and businesses to help build their displays.

Be sure to take a photo of your display and send it to us so we can post it on our bulletin board and include it in our Newsletter.

Buy a pansy and or a bunch of pansies from Country Grocer from March 13 to the 26th and Country Grocer will donate .50 to HeadWay for every Pansy Purchased.
