Paint the town purple
March 26 is international purple day for epilepsy, and Epilepsy New Zealand is doing its bit to ensure the day is celebrated proudly for all those with the condition, an estimated 90,000 people in New Zealand.
This month, Epilepsy New Zealand is challenging everyone to be a hero on March 26 and help raise awareness of epilepsy in the community.
Whether you fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, as long as it’s purple it will be perfect for Purple Day. If you’re the social and energetic type, why not organise an event at work, school or with friends and get people to contribute on the day?
Create a theme – wear your best and brightest purple clothing, the most outrageous purple outfit or even go the extra mile and dye your hair purple!
Epilepsy New Zealand needs volunteers to hold purple themed events around the country to raise awareness.
Prizes will be awarded to the biggest and most creative events.
