When to Wear Purple?

So you all know that PURPLE is the color for epilepsy awareness, right? If you don't, now you do! Purple also happens to be our Little Luella's favorite color! Works out nicely. Do you ever wonder when you should wear purple to show support for epilepsy and Dravet syndrome? The easy answer is ANYTIME you want! :-) While you can wear purple anytime, there are a few special days devoted to epilepsy awareness and Dravet syndrome awareness. The first of these special days is coming up soon. March 26th is Purple Day for Epilepsy! Wear purple on Thursday, March 26th and read more about this special Purple Day initiative at http://www.purpleday.org/index.html.

The next special purple day is closer to our hearts as it is the Dravet Syndrome Awareness Day. This day is June 23rd. This year will mark the 2nd annual Dravet Syndrome Awareness Day!! We are excited that Dravet itself has a special day and we hope you will all mark it on your calendar and wear purple for Luella and those affected by Dravet syndrome! Read more about it at http://www.dravetfoundation.org/archives/events/dravet-syndrome-awareness-day.

Finally the ENTIRE month of NOVEMBER is Epilepsy Awareness Month!! So wear purple anytime in November and help spread awareness for epilepsy! More about it at http://www.epilepsy.com/make-difference/get-involved/national-epilepsy-awareness-month.

Thank you for your continued support!! I love seeing these Little Luella shirts worn randomly by so many of our friends and family!! If anyone is interested in ordering a shirt, please let me know. If I get enough interest to keep the cost down I will place another order before June.
