Wow we just love Purple Day! In 2016 our amazing supporters helped to raise almost $160,000, which is HUGE!!!
Purple Day is a global initiative to raise awareness of epilepsy and is held on the 26th March each year. We were so excited to see our supporters all around Australia getting purple, raising funds and starting conversations about epilepsy.
We also held our inaugural Art for Epilepsy Auction at this time which featured artists from around the country who very generously donated their work; each piece of art contained the colour purple (the internationally recognised colour for epilepsy). The auction alone raised over $20,000!
Whether you hosted a fundraising event, made a donation, bought merchandise or wore purple – we thank you! And we hope to have you involved again in 2017!
Even though Purple Day 2016 is over, you can still get involved and support those impacted by the condition any time throughout the year via any of our fun and engaging initiatives – check out some of the other ways you can support us by clicking here.
We're already counting down to Purple Day 2017 and cannot wait to unveil what exciting plans we have in store for you! Stay tuned!
