Wherever you are in the world, thank you for getting involved in SUDEP Action Day. We would love for you to join us this year by taking #5forEpilepsySafety with a fundraiser.
Could you take #5forEpilepsySafety and challenge yourself to 5 things you could do to support epilepsy safety?
- Pick your 5 challenges, anything from - sharing information you’ve learned, to building a display of leaflets in your local community centre - every little bit goes a long way to help save lives. (You can find some more ideas here).
- Set up an online donations page via JustGiving letting people know the challenges you have set for yourself, and asking for sponsored donations to complete your challenges.
- Share the page with family and friends. You can even encourage them to do the same so that we can spread more ways people can take #5forEpilepsySafety as well as raise much needed funds in our fight against SUDEP!
- Update your page after each act so your donors know how your challenges went and the inspiring ways that you have taken #5forEpilepsySafety.
- Share your page with SUDEP Action so that we can cheer you on! Don’t forget to use the hashtags #5forEpilepsySafety and #SUDEPActionDay2019!
Still need more ideas? Why not consider?
Why not take the leap and book a sponsored bungee jump or skydive? All you have to do is see what jumps are happening in your area here then email us at [email protected]udep.org so we can save a place for you.
If you find the Great British Bake Off a little more inspiring than breaking a sweat, you could consider hosting a delicious bake sale to raise awareness and funds.
Don’t forget to share your fundraiser and use the hashtags #5forEpilepsySafety and #SUDEPActionDay2019!
With plenty of ideas to get you started we hope you have a great SUDEP Action Day 2019!
