“We hope to see a lot of purple in our town on March 26! If all goes well, we hope to expand on the project next year!”

I advocate for myself and my daughter Mariah.

As Mariah’s Girl Scout Leader, we had a talk about doing an Epilepsy Awareness project during this school year (2014-2015). We started by joining the local Daisy Troop for our Homecoming Parades. We dressed up as “”Alice in Wonderland”” characters (Author Lewis Carroll had epilepsy!) for the Kiddie Parade, and did a float and wore T-shirts saying “”Girl Scouts Go Purple For Epilepsy”” for the Grand Parade.
