Purple Day

Purple Day

Every year in March, Lily’s Fund participates in this worldwide epilepsy awareness effort.

Show Your Support

On Thursday, March 23*, we invite you and your organization to be part of Purple Day. All you have to do is one thing: wear purple. Through this simple act, you raise awareness and show support for those living with epilepsy. Awareness brings funding. Funding brings more research, better treatments and hopefully a cure.

Think purple ties, socks, scarves, sweaters, dress shirts or wear a purple ribbon. We have a supply of special stickers to wear to show your support of those who live with epilepsy. Contact us at lilysfund@gmail.com.

*We are celebrating early this year as Purple Day, March 26, falls on a Sunday and during many people’s spring break.

 Download and print materials to promote the day.

Check out these photos from last year.

 

About Purple Day

At the age of 9, Nova Scotia resident Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came on board in 2008 to help develop Cassidy’s idea. In 2009, the Anita Kaufmann Foundation and Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia joined forces. In 2010, Lily’s Fund joined the Purple Day campaign to raise awareness about epilepsy.
