Get your Purple On!

It seems like it wasn't very long ago when I was doing a post about this very, another year has gone by!

March 26th, is Purple Day. So what is Purple Day? Read some of the info below (that I borrowed from the

Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness.

Purple Day was founded in 2008, by nine-year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada, with the help of the Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia (EANS). Cassidy chose the colour purple after the international colour for epilepsy, lavender. The lavender flower is also often associated with solitude, which is representative of the feelings 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.

I absolutely love that last part that....what a beautiful and amazing young girl to have such a big heart, and well beyond her years to want to spread awareness and give support to those with epilepsy all around the world. Way to go Cassidy!

So will you please join us and wear purple on Saturday, March 26th? Please do so and email your pics to me (you can find a link to my email under our profile on the blog) and I will post them on our blog. Here is a link to the pics we got last year....let's see if we can top it this year!

I know I am a little late on posting this, but I do think Cassidy will understand if you want to make your Purple Day on Monday, March 28th, in efforts to gain more support and spread the word.

Let's do it! Let's show Kylie your support for her and all of her friends around the world that have been afflicted with epilepsy. Let them know they are not alone, but standing strong with your support!
