Conceived by three smart cupcakes at the Anita Kaufman Foundation (AKF), Three Great Purple Cupcake Project is a sweet epilepsy awareness initiative supporting Purple the Day (March 26th) . During the week of March 26th AKF is inviting bakeries and cupcakeries across the United States to feature PURPLE CUPCAKES in an effort to promote awareness of a condition that effects over 3 million Americans.
Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people from around the globe wear purple to promote awareness about epilepsy. Purple Day was founded in 2008, by nine year old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, Cassidy started a day in an effort to get people talking about the disorder and reassure those with seizures that they are not alone. she named the day Purple Day after the international recognized color for epilepsy, lavender.
