PURPLE DAY BLOG HOP 2019 - EPILEPSY AWARENESS

Please take a moment to read.
Purple Day is a global grassroots event formed with the intention to increase worldwide awareness of epilepsy, and to dispel common myths and fears of this neurological disorder. Further intentions of this movement are to reduce the social stigmas commonly endured by many individuals afflicted with the condition, to provide assurance and advocacy to those living with epilepsy that they are not alone in their ongoing endurance, and to initiate individuals living with the condition to take action in their communities to achieve these aims.
 The day occurs annually on March 26.
 Formation and history
  
The concept of Purple Day was initiated by a 9-year-old named Cassidy Megan, and was motivated by her own struggle with epilepsy.
The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia helped to develop Cassidy's idea, and the first Purple Day event was held on March 26, 2008, and is now known as the Purple Day for Epilepsy campaign.

In 2009, the New York-based Anita Kaufmann Foundation and Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia joined to launch Purple Day internationally and increase the involvement of numerous organizations, schools, businesses, politicians and celebrities around the world. On March 26, 2009 over 100,000 students, 95 workplaces and 116 politicians participated in Purple Day. In March 2009, the official USA Purple Day Party launch was organized by the Anita Kaufmann Foundation. Canadian Paul Shaffer of the Late Show with David Letterman attended the official launch at Dylan's Candy Bar in New York City.

In March 2012, Purple Day received the Royal Assent and became a legal day for epilepsy awareness in Canada.
In December 2015, Electronics retailer Dick Smith had arranged a major corporate partnership with Epilepsy Action Australia to support Purple Day in Australia with a $50,000 cash sponsorship, prizes and exclusive distribution of Purple Day merchandise. A week prior to Purple Day celebrations in 2016, Dick Smith was placed in receivership. Later, the Retail Food Group provided a $50,000 donation to match Dick Smith's previously promised sponsorship.

I made this card to celebrate the day - of course in purple. I used a brand new set I recently bought from ALTENEW - Build a Flower : LARKSPUR Bundle
I used everything purple and lilac. I stamped the main outline image several times on the background and then made another one, using all parts of the stamps, which I raised on 3D foamies. I also purchased the matching die set :-D 



This is the prize from me:

BABY BLANKIE

Hello Peeps,
I haven't been on much due to my neck and the latest crochet project I've been doing :-D
My Nephew recently had a new baby so I decided to crochet a blankie... a bit different for me because I usually do teeny animals and stuff like Amigurumi things :-)
I finished it and it's ready to post off so here's a looksee........



It was a bit of a moo to photograph because some of the ears folded over and every time I put one back out, another one folded over hahahaha
It certainly kept my little arthritic fingers busy and apart from slightly sore thumbs, I didn't do too bad.

I enjoyed it so much that I'm making another one which I hope to sell :-)

Thanks for popping in. I'll be back with some card commissions a bit later.
Happy weekend xxx
