Brainwaves e-News, edition 15, 2019

We’re halfway through Epilepsy Awareness Month – Purple Month – our biggest awareness and fundraising time of the year.

I’d like to thank all the schools, businesses and workplaces, and individuals who have already come on board to support Tasmania’s epilepsy community.

It’s not too late to get involved – you can host a purple activity, sell our merchandise at your work or school, or volunteer to help at one of our events. Register on our website or call us on 6344 6881.

Last Wednesday, our Open Garden event at Government House was a great success. The weather was nearly perfect for viewing a garden and thankfully the rain held off until after the Governor, Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Kate Warner, had drawn our raffle winners!

We’re pleased to let you know our new ambassador, Jess McCallum, won third place in an international video competition to raise awareness of epilepsy. She was the only Australian to gain a place so we are very proud of her – view all videos here.

You can help Jess compete in the USA at the World Powerlifting Championships by making a tax-deductible donation to our Pozible fundraising campaign – Let’s Lift Tasmania and sharing it widely with your networks.
