Brainwaves e-News, Ed 26, 2020

Hello and welcome to Purple Month!

Epilepsy Awareness Month has well and truly started and there are lots of interesting and fun activities going on.

We began Purple Month by launching our new TV and Cinema advertisement – perhaps you’ve seen it? – and our schools’ finger knitting challenge with a special bus named Miss Lila – perhaps you saw it on the TV news or in the Examiner newspaper?

Sam from Ikin Media has produced a new podcast initiative and an exciting first for Epilepsy Tasmania that complements our second My Journey photo-story exhibition showcasing in Launceston next week. It is free and you are invited to attend as many times as you would like and join us for celebratory evening drinks and canapes on Friday 13th.

International  Women’s Day is this Sunday 8th March, and as Serena Williams says below: we are strongest when we cheer each other on. I hope you get to enjoy the day with those around you, regardless of gender.

Epilepsy Tasmania has been receiving some great support from atWork, including their sponsorship of our celebratory music and canape launch of the My Journey Exhibition and their hosting of an epilepsy awareness morning tea on Thursday 26th March from 10 to 11.30 am at the Strike It Out Café in Thistle Street South Launceston. Everyone is welcome to this event, but please RSVP by March 20th to 0439041162 or email cassandra.phillips@atworkaustralia.com.au

As you can see below, there is lots going on and I hope you enjoy participating in Purple Month and sharing your experiences with us. As always, your feedback is encouraged.
