Last year, Purple Day on March 26th was declared an official day by the Government of Canada. It comes from an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy. Every year, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness.
Here is the best part: it was started by Cassidy Megan, a young girl in Halifax, when she was nine years old.
Epilepsy Toronto is hosting some excellent events and I’ll definitely be at The Purple Party.
Enjoy wearing the beautiful colour purple!
