Pledge for Purple Day

Where's the purple?

If we see someone in pink, we all know what he or she is supporting. If we see someone wearing red, most of us will recognize his or her cause. But, very few people are aware that purple is the color of epilepsy...OUR COLOR! We need to change that. We need to make purple appear in every community! With your help, purple can become an important color every day - not just one day a year on March 26th, the international day of epilepsy awareness. To do this, The Anita Kaufmann Foundation launched the Pledge for Purple Day campaign so that you can play a very personal role in reducing stigma and getting the facts out in your community.

Our goal is to raise $200,000 from November through March 26th, one dollar for each of the estimated 200,000 persons diagnosed with epilepsy in the United States each year. After all, it's up to us to spread the word about epilepsy!
