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 and Hannahtopia joined forces for the Kindness Box Initiative, which centers on providing a welcome package for patients and their caregivers that includes a signature, Purple Day® Every Day and Eisai NillyNoggin® cap, educational resources, and epilepsy awareness and advocacy materials. Our mission is to brighten every patient’s day and help them face the sterile environment of the hospital.
Inspired by Purple Day® – March 26, the international day for epilepsy awareness, we created Purple Day® Every Day to help make purple and epilepsy awareness important every day of the year.
Launched by The Anita Kaufmann Foundation, Purple Day® Every Day connects people just like you with epilepsy awareness initiatives and events year-round. Check out our Events page to find the events nearest you and
sign up to become a Purple Day Ambassador in your community.
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.
