Through our day-to-day communications with thousands of people living with epilepsy, we learned that the process of getting an EEG can be a very daunting experience for patients and their families. The sterile, cold, and mechanical environment combined with intimidating lights and machines can be very difficult to cope with, especially for a young or a newly diagnosed patient.
Helping patients from the moment they arrive at a facility for epilepsy care is crucial to our mission of making the world a kinder place for people with epilepsy; there is nothing kinder than lending a helping hand in a time of need.
That is why Purple Day® Every Day created the Kindness Box Initiative, which centers on providing a welcome package for patients and their caregivers that includes educational resources, advocacy materials, and fun (mostly purple) items to enjoy while undergoing an EEG or staying in an epilepsy center. Our mission is to brighten every patient’s day and help them face the sterile environment of the hospital.
We publish a unique collection of epilepsy information and seizure first aid materials that have been approved by our team of medical advisors. All materials, including posters, pamphlets, and bookmarks feature people who live with epilepsy. Most of our materials are available for download on our Resource Page.
The NillyNoggin® is a colorful EEG cap that is soft, comfortable, and snug. The caps are made from quality colorful fun fabrics that are sure to bring confidence to the individuals wearing them.
