In case you weren’t aware, tomorrow (March 26) is Purple Day — a global initiative dedicated to raising awareness for epilepsy. Founded in 2008 by nine-year-old Cassidy Megan in an attempt to get the surrounding community talking about the condition that affects so many, young Cassidy wanted to let all those individuals impacted by seizures know that they are not alone. That she is with them and stands with them always. And why purple you my wonder? Because lavender is the internationally recognised colour for epilepsy.
Since it’s launch back in 2008, Purple Day has grown into a nationally supported awareness day with the number of participants across Australia growing each year. From community events, through to school fundraisers and corporate sector initiatives, Purple Day is one for the books.
As we mentioned, tomorrow (Friday, March 26) is Purple Day and we want to help you get involved with this incredible initiative. We’re going to take you on a quick deep dive through three of our staple LL pieces that your Little Laner can wear tomorrow to show their support for Purple Day! So, let’s begin:
We’re leaving it at three (because we don’t want to bombard you), but these three staple Lacey Lane pieces are perfect for helping you raise awareness this Purple Day. Please check with your school to see how they are getting involved with Purple Day this year and then jump on board and help raise that awareness! We’re counting on your Laner.
Send us photos or tag us in the pictures of your little love tomorrow! We’ll be responding all day long.
All of our love,
Team Lacey Lane!
