Epilepsy gifts that make an impact

During this season of holiday parties and gift giving, I thought it would be fun to see what’s available in epilepsy gifts. I was surprised to find that there are many options for contributing to the cause and increasing awareness by way of a holiday gift.

Since everyone loves to open a gift, I thought it made sense to start with the things that can be wrapped. There are several sites that offer epilepsy awareness shirts, caps and other merchandise. Two of my favorites are Zazzle and Cafe Press. To the right you’ll see a shirt that can be found on these sites.

If you are looking for a gift that makes more of a direct impact, you’ll find that many organizations welcome donations as gifts. In fact, the Epilepsy Foundation has set up a way to send a card to let your friend or family member know a gift has been made in their name.

And, if you want to contribute to your local epilepsy organization but don’t know where to find them, start by following me on Twitter. Check out the organizations I’m following and you will find many of the epilepsy organizations throughout the world.

    to Jessica: it was turkey good to hear someone’s story that relates to my son, cory. I just found this blog today. Cory’s epilepsy is now called intractable. meaning meds will not help. at one time cory was in 5000 mg. meds per day, he to lost weight down to anexeria, then we give him a pill to make him hungry. that would make him gain weight at dangerous pace. after 3 yrs of this , we quit & let god handle it. he eats fairly now. cory is facin lobe surgery, soon . I will b thinkin of u & Thanku.
