Be Purple And Proud For Epilepsy


PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release

Be Purple And Proud For Epilepsy

26 March 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.

Be a Hero on March 26 and help raise awareness of epilepsy in your 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? Create a theme – wear your best and brightest purple clothing, the most outrageous purple outfit, go the extra mile and dye your hair purple – and get people to contribute on the day for the honour of participating (and having a really good time). Any excuse for a get together is good. Have it over morning tea, lunch, and don’t forget the catwalk parade!

To host or participate, just register www.epilepsy.org.nz online or email national@epilepsy.org.nz. All funds raised go directly to Epilepsy New Zealand.

Comedy Festival Review: VOTE BATT

The political campaigning in the US over the last eight months or so has provided a stark insight into how far political candidates are willing to go.
