Purple Day

Purple Day

This is PURPLE DAY!

March 26, 2023

Many of you have heard about this global awareness raising day where we can all be as creative as possible with the color purple (official color of epilepsy) as long as we are striving to raise awareness and educate others about this serious and important disorder.  Check out the The Great Purple Cupcake Project hosted by the Anita Kaufman Foundation: https://purpledayeveryday.org/events/the-great-purple-cupcake-project-for-epilepsy/

Don't forget to send in your pictures of how YOU chose to color March 26 all shades of purple!
