Make March Purple in 2023

Help turn things around for Queenslanders with epilepsy.

The Epilepsy Queensland team are gearing up to Make March Purple this year and we are bursting at the seams with ideas on how you can get involved! Keep reading to find out how you, your family, school, workplace or community organisation can help turn things around for Queenslanders with epilepsy.

How can I get involved?

There are plenty of opportunities for you to help us Make March Purple this year. For example, you could:

If you are a school…

Did you know that 1 in 200 Aussie school children are living with epilepsy? Chances are there’s a student at your school living with this condition. You can help them feel supported to live well with their epilepsy by holding a fundraising event, dress purple day, crazy hair day, bake sale or another event with our FREE schools kit. Check out our school resources here.

If you are a pharmacy…

We encourage you to get involved by selling our purple plush merchandise packs and putting up Make March Purple posters in your pharmacy. You could even go the extra mile and host your own Purple Day event, morning tea etc. Find out more here.

Can you help me?

Of course! Our friendly fundraising team are here to help you every step of the way. If you need ideas, guidance or assistance, you can reach out to us at
