Seizures haven’t stopped. Neither have we. 
And thankfully, neither have you.

So, that was Black Friday. Did you find a bargain? Or are you a fully signed up member of the Ban Black Friday campaign? Either way, Giving Tuesday is around the corner and we are asking (ever so politely) if you would consider donating what you DIDN’T spend today to Epilepsy Research UK? By supporting vital research you will be providing help for today and hope for tomorrow to countless people living with epilepsy.

Tuesday 1 December is Giving Tuesday, a day when people everywhere can do something to support the causes that mean so much to them. In a year that has seen everyone’s plans disrupted by Covid-19, we are reminded that epilepsy interrupts the lives of ordinary, extraordinary people every day, every year. Thanks to investment in research, promising vaccines are in development and Covid-19 could soon be brought under control. Epilepsy, however, will continue to cause profound personal, family and social disruption. The need for driving and enabling research into epilepsy remains clear.

Help us celebrate this day of generosity and the beginning of the giving season by making a donation to Epilepsy Research UK or by setting up your own Facebook Fundraiser to show your friends and family how much epilepsy research means to you. We’ll be happy to lend a hand if you need any top tips to get your Facebook fundraising page really singing!
