Did you know there are 65 million people living with Epilepsy worldwide? Of those 65 million 375,000 live right here in Florida! Epilepsy is a diagnosis usually given to someone who has 3 or more unprovoked seizures and a seizure, in its simplest term, is an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain. Epilepsy is not contagious, it does not discriminate and it is not a disease!
With Purple Day (March 26th) not that far off, I thought what better way to get ready for it than to have an Origami Owl Fundraiser and have a portion of the proceeds go to the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida. I also decided to have it online because I know there are purple warriors like us all over the United States and all over the world for that matter.
If you haven’t heard of Origami Owl, they offer a new and unique twist on personalized jewelry, beautiful customizable lockets with interchangeable charms! I first spotted theses lockets when, The Mom Buzz, a fellow member of The Tampa Bay Bloggers posted a link on Facebook and I fell in love with them. I contacted Paula Hebner, the Origami Owl representative, and asked if she could make one specific for Epilepsy and I loved what she came up with.
There are so many choices! Perhaps you’d like a simpler locket with a few special charms for someone special in your life, maybe your mom, sister, daughter or a good friend!
I am so excited to share this amazing line with you all and it’s so easy to get started:
