What is Purple Day?

Purple Day was founded in 2008, by nine-year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, Cassidy started Purple Day in an effort to get people talking about the condition, to spread awareness and to let those impacted by seizures know that they are not alone.



Do you own a business or know any businesses who would like to support epilepsy? Send us an email and we can organise to have one of our donation boxes placed on your counter.



Don’t throw them out, we can sort through and recycle them for you. Drop into The Epilepsy Centre at 463 Regency Road, Prospect, 5082, South Australia and let us take your old stamps off your hands.


If you would like to partner with us by way of our Annual appeal cans or want any more information on how you can help out then please contact us by or phone 1300 850 081
