Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought it was perfect

So, how did the Purple Pumpkin Project come about? It is all credited to a boy and his father! Founder Ron Lamontagne's son who has epilepsy, was thinking about how to spread awareness for those living with epilepsy, and when he came upon a local pumpkin patch, he was inspired! Knowing November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, and that children and their families would be carving pumpkins for Halloween on October 31, he thought why not make one purple and when folks ask, "Why is your pumpkin purple?" we can all reply "For epilepsy awareness" and encourage conversations about it! In this video, also from 2015, we highlight the program as well as many beautiful Epi-dogs and their furfriends who helped us spread the word about Canine Epilepsy Awareness and showing off their purple pumpkins in support!
Come on back next month, when I will be highlighting various Epi-dogs, information, and resources for Canine Epilepsy!
Now, be sure to show us your purple pumpkins! Simply visit our FiveSibes: Siberian Husky K9 News & Reviews Facebook page and post it (and your pet's name & town/country) under our pinned post for Purple Pumpkins, or DM it to me and I will share throughout the month! It may even wind up in a future awareness video!
