I will fundraise at school for epilepsy to raise awareness, understanding and money to make an impact for kids living with epilepsy.
An estimated 12,000 children in Queensland are currently living with epilepsy. For kids with epilepsy getting through the school day can be challenging. Not only can seizures impact on a child’s education but the side effects of anti-seizure medication can cause fatigue and changes in behaviour.
1 in every 200 Australian school children are living with epilepsy – so it is likely you already know a student with the condition.
What can your school do to make an impact?
- Host a morning tea, free dress day, crazy hair competition, tuckshop treat day, guessing competition, colouring contest, silly socks day… the options are endless!
- Register your school today to receive your FREE schools kit. Including, stickers, posters, balloons and a storybook for your library about a possum with epilepsy.
- Share your purple images on social media with #makemarchpurple #purpleday #epilepsyqueensland
- Or email us your images to firstname.lastname@example.org
Or if you would like to create an online fundraising page for your school, click here to get started. You can share your online fundraising page with your school community through email and social media keeping everyone up to date of your event plans, and also giving them an online place to donate directly to your fundraiser. At the end of your event, you can donate any money raised by students directly to your online page.
