Purple Day® Every Day Events

Over the past few years, we’ve seen the growth of Purple Day®, the international day for epilepsy awareness. We’ve also seen a dramatic increase of epilepsy awareness activities on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

But purple needs to become even more prominent – and not just on one day, week or month of the year. It is time for purple to represent our cause the way pink and red do theirs, and to accomplish this, we need your help.

AKF is making it easier than ever to get involved in purple events and initiatives all year round. From The Great Purple Cupcake Project to Lace Up for Epilepsy, we have a passionately purple project waiting for you. Check out all of the AKF supported projects and contact us today to get involved.

Our mission is to increase awareness of epilepsy and eliminate stigma worldwide. Help us bring purple out of the shadows. We simply cannot do it without you.
