Epilepsy is a cause near and dear to our heart as our own Meg-a-Moo lives with epilepsy! March 26th has become known as Purple Day, a day when we encourage people around the world to wear purple in support of epilepsy awareness!
“Purple day began with a nine-year-old girl, Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada, who with the help of the Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia (EANS) chose the colour purple (lavender) as the international colour for epilepsy, which is awesome as it’s Megs favorite color. The lavender flower is also often associated with solitude, which represents the feeling of isolation many people affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders often feel. Cassidy’s goal is for people with epilepsy everywhere to know they are not alone. To learn more about Cassidy and Global Purple Day Partners EANS and The Anita Kaufmann Foundation (AKFUS), please click HERE .”
Meg and I were talking about what we c ould do to create awareness and so we decided to ask our friends and family to wear purple on March 26th and send us pictures so we could create a collage that would remind Meg of the love and support she has all around her.
Well then this idea grew! We put our heads together and came up with a purple themed competition… The Passionate Purple Day Giveaway!… asking bloggers to take pictures of anything and everything purple and then link them back here! The only rule is to be creative! You can take pictures of your family decked out in purple, purple jam, kids painting with purple, flowers, balloons, etc. The more creative the better!The competition will run until March 28th, which is when Meg will pick a winner and we will send them a purple prize!
So let’s show people how powerful blogging really is! Please join our family and help us spread Epilepsy Awareness around the world!Thank You!
