This fall, the Epilepsy Foundation (epilepsy.com) needs your help to raise awareness and funds for the epilepsy community. Join the Purple Pumpkin Project and paint your orange pumpkin patch purple. Over 3.4 million people live with epilepsy in the United States. That’s a lot of people! Their Purple Pumpkin Project raises money to assure them that they are not alone. Display your Purple Pumpkin and post your story and photos on your fundraising page and via social media to build awareness about epilepsy and support the Epilepsy Foundation in the fight to END EPILEPSY. It’s amazing what a small can of purple paint and a fruit can do (yes, pumpkins are fruits!).
The Epilepsy Foundation is a national voluntary health agency dedicated solely to the welfare of the nearly 3.4 million people living with epilepsy in the U.S. and their families. The Foundation works to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences and to promote research for a cure.
