Purple Day® is an international grassroots campaign founded by Canadian woman, Cassidy Megan. The day sees people across the world encouraged to wear purple in the name of epilepsy awareness and well-known buildings across the globe also light up purple in recognition of the estimated 50 million people living with epilepsy across the globe. The day takes place on March 26th every year and Epilepsy Ireland use the day to increase awareness of epilepsy by encouraging buildings to light up Purple and by asking our fantastic volunteers and supporters to take part in fundraising events in support of our work towards a society where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.
