Update from the Purple Day Campaign

November 1, 2011 · No Comments

Our friends at the Purple Day Campaign are making headway on getting Purple Day recognized as an official day of epilepsy awareness by the Canadian Federal Government. I will let a status update from their Facebook page do the talking:

“Canada: Private members Bill C-278 – The Purple Day Act will be presented in the House of Commons in Ottawa on or before November 14th. Bill C-278 will be voted on and if passed with then go on the next stage of this process. We are asking you contact the Federal Member of Parliament that represents you in Ottawa and tell them why this bill is so important to support for those living with epilepsy in Canada. It’s important they know about some of the challenges that people living with epilepsy face such as; the lack of public awareness, education, and stigma associated with the condition of epilepsy. Please reshare with others to help us spread the word. If this bill passes all steps it will mean that March 26th – Purple Day will be recognized as the “Official Day” for Epilepsy Awareness in Canada.”

You heard them, get out there and contact your Federal MP! I will be writing my letter in short order. Only together can we get Purple Day recognized by Canada! Lets raise awareness of epilepsy and fight stigma in society!
