Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) July 20, 2015
[EpilepsyStore.com, the new nonprofit online retail marketplace where people can “Shop Purple for a Purpose™", is celebrating “Christmas in July” to raise epilepsy awareness and generate funds to improve the quality of life for those 3.5 million Americans living with epilepsy.
To commemorate this event, an exclusive, limited-edition set of purple and white Christmas ornaments with the brand’s signature “e” epilepsy awareness ribbon have been designed especially for the EpilepsyStore.com. The trademarked purple “e” ribbon was created to distinguish epilepsy from over 25 causes that are using a generic purple awareness ribbon.
With 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these holiday ornaments benefiting the programs of [Epilepsy Association of Central Florida, customers can purchase with confidence knowing they are helping others in need. Funds generated from this venture will help to support specific cause-related activities such as epilepsy prevention and education presentations, individual and family case management, support groups, and epilepsy-related medical services such as laboratory testing, neurologist visits, and diagnostics such as EEG’s and MRI’s to non-insured, underinsured, and those with pressing economic needs.
“This one-of-kind Christmas ornament has been specially designed so families affected by epilepsy can share the message of epilepsy awareness in a subtle way, and, hopefully start a conversation about epilepsy during the holidays with their friends and loved ones,” said Charles Carmen, Executive Director of Epilepsy Association of Central Florida and founder of the EpilepsyStore.com. “There are still too many myths and stigmas surrounding this disorder that we must dispel.”
EpilepsyStore.com is launching its “Christmas in July” event with a specially priced introductory offer of $14.95 for the set of two ornaments, which includes one each in purple and white. The hope is that these festive epilepsy awareness items will be both appealing and accessible to a broad segment of consumers. To celebrate “Christmas In July”, help raise epilepsy awareness, and help those in need, visit EpilepsyStore.com.
