Epilepsy Fundraiser Spectacular!

By Carla Wright

Make March Purple for Epilepsy

Hello my wonderful family and friends!

๐Ÿ’œ#MakeMarchPurple is a national campaign for Epilepsy Awareness, centred around โ€˜World Purple Dayโ€™ on March 26 - the international day for epilepsy awarenessย ๐Ÿ’œย As most of you know, my family has been greatly affected by this illness with both myself and my uncle having epilepsy. I am thus very passionate about spreading epilepsy awarenessย ๐Ÿ’ž

I will therefore be holding a Purple Day Picnic Fundraiser for Epilepsy Awareness on Sunday, March 28th! Netball has been the only thing I've been able to do throughout my health journey, so I'm very excited to also be incorporating it into my fundraiser as well!ย ๐Ÿฅฐ

All proceeds will go to Epilepsy Queensland ๐Ÿ’Œ

If you canโ€™t make it but would still love to support this important cause, please donate here! Your generous contribution will help provide support for the 30,000 people living with epilepsy in Queensland.ย ๐Ÿ’œ

You can also show your support by wearing purple all month long!!ย ๐ŸŸฃ

Thank you so much!ย ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

Will YOU be the one to take us over the $2,500 line? ๐Ÿ’œ

Tuesday 30th Mar
Only a few days left in Epilepsy Awareness month - which means thereโ€™s still time to donate! Thank you so much to everyone who attended the wonderful picnic and bake sale yesterday! Together we raised $126! ๐Ÿคฉ I really appreciate everyoneโ€™s efforts and support! Ourย total is now $2,490 - so close to my final $2,500 goal you can almost taste it! Will YOU be the one to take us over the line? ๐ŸŒˆ

I cannot express how truly grateful I am for all of your support and generosity โ˜บ๏ธ Just by wearing purple and/or donating, youโ€™re โ€˜bringing epilepsy out of the shadowsโ€™ and providing much-needed support and funds to epilepsy sufferers (like me) across Queensland.

Thank you so much and lots of love,
Xoxoย

Thank you SO much for supporting me and helping me raise awareness for this special cause ๐Ÿ’œ Weโ€™ve officially cracked our $2000 target! ๐Ÿคฏ Now time to aim even higher! โ˜„๏ธ Letโ€™s see if we can reach $2500!ย 

Sending love to all my purple supporters,

The bigger the target, the better the support! ๐Ÿ’œ

Saturday 20th Mar
Thanks for smashing our target of $1000, currently at $1459! I'm so grateful to everyone who has donated! ๐Ÿ˜ Let's see if we can make $2000!! ๐Ÿ’œ Epilepsy Queensland needs to raise $100,000 this month to deliver essential support services to help people living with epilepsy ๐Ÿ’œ

How are YOU making March purple? ๐Ÿ’œ

Sunday 14th Mar

๐Ÿ’œ How are you showing your support for Epilepsy Awareness this month? Getting creative with your splashes of purple like Anna, Amy, Trinity and me?ย ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’…


๐ŸŸฃย If youโ€™re feeling particularly stuck, let our new epilepsy elephant mascot, Dan, inspire you!! I stumbled upon him at the Purple Day fundraising stand at Indro todayย ๐Ÿฅฐย I named him Dan after my incredible neurologist Dr Dan McLaughlin - without whom I wouldnโ€™t be where I am today. Our little elephant will therefore be joining us for the rest of our purple month journey and will hopefully be rolling around in donations at the end!ย ๐Ÿ˜


Your generosity is very much appreciated!
