What is Make March Purple for epilepsy?

Each March the world turns purple in support of the 50 million people living with epilepsy. In 2022 Epilepsy Tasmania invites you to join the movement happening in over 130 countries around the world and make March purple for epilepsy!

Make March Purple is an Australia-wide campaign supported by epilepsy organisations across the country and the national peak body – Epilepsy Australia

World Purple Day, held on March 26 is an international day of awareness for people impacted by epilepsy. 

How can you Make March Purple for epilepsy?

During the month of March, Epilepsy Tasmania invites you to get involved. On this page, you will find the many ways you can raise funds and awareness in support of the 280 Australians diagnosed with epilepsy every week.

During March you will see iconic landmarks around Australia light up PURPLE. If you have a tree, a building, or even a windmill you can light up Purple, let us know and we can help.
