Go purple on March 26th to help raise funds and awareness!

Purple Day logo

Purple Day (March 26th) is an international epilepsy awareness day 

The day was founded by a young girl called Cassidy Megan in 2008. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, Cassidy's goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone. It is a great global day to raise funds and awareness for SUDEP Action. Your fundraising can help us to dispel myths about SUDEP, raise awareness and ultimately save lives.

You can take part in any Purple Day fundraiser you like, but we have come up with some ideas to help inspire you. 

Hold a purple cake sale. Purple icing, decorations and cake mix can help make a tasty purple fundraiser. 

Host a guess how many sweets are in a jar stand. If you are holding a stand in a public area make sure that you have a fundraising permit from your local council. 

Ask your workplace for a purple themed dress down day or fancy dress day if your office already wears casual clothes.

Take part in a purple fashion week. Wear purple over 7 days and blog your fashion choices on social media with the link to our donate page, 

Hold a purple themed party.

Share your event photos on Instagram, to the SUDEP Action Facebook page or tweet SUDEP Action using the #PurpleDay hashtag.
