Epilepsy affects more than 500,000 people in the UK. This means almost 1 in 100 people has the condition. Epilepsy usually begins during childhood, although it can start at any age. Epilepsy also affects over 65,000,000 people worldwide! and causes 1000 deaths in the UK alone
We’re asking Google to create a doodle for their homepage in support of Epilepsy Awareness every year, March 26th “Purple Day” and November 1st The first day of “Epilepsy Awareness Month” . It would raise awareness of the condition which still has so much stigma attatched because people dont know about it as much as other conditions. Millions of people use google every day and this would reach out to people much more than any Epilepsy charity could ever hope to do.
Google has created over 300 Doodles for musicians, inventors, artists, historians and more! Please Create A Google Doodle For Epilepsy Awareness!
Our goal is to get 50,000 signatures in hopes that Google will turn their homepage icon purple for the cause!
