Purple Day

Join Us for Purple Day, March 26, 2015!

On Thursday, March 26, we invite you and your organization to be part of Wear Purple Day. All you have to do is one thing: wear purple. By doing this one simple act, you raise awareness and show support for those living with epilepsy. Awareness brings funding. Funding brings more research, better treatments and hopefully a cure.


So think purple ties, socks, scarves, sweaters, dress shirts or wear a purple ribbon. We have a  supply of special stickers to wear to show your support of those who live with epilepsy. Contact us at lilysfund@gmail.com.

You can also download and print materials to promote the day. Download Epilepsy Facts and your Purple Day flier (or in Spanish) here.

Check out these photos from last year.

Who Gets Their Purple On?

If you’re heading to First Choice Dental for an appointment, be prepared to see purple. All staff will be in purple scrubs and gear the week of purple day.

About Purple Day

At the age of 9, Nova Scotia resident Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came on board in 2008 to help develop Cassidy’s idea. In 2009, the Anita Kaufmann Foundation and Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia joined forces. In 2010, Lily’s Fund joined the Purple Day campaign to raise awareness about epilepsy.
