‘Thoughful Thursday’ Purple Stitch Project (PSP)

Purple Stitch Project (PSP) is a web-based charitable organization to benefit babies, children and teens with epilepsy. The 1st goal of this initiative is a call to action for people who knit, crochet, or sew to make purple (the epilepsy awareness color) gifts for kids with seizure disorders. These gifts will serve as a reminder that they are not alone — that they have community support. To do this, Purple Stitch Project has teamed up with Craftsy to be able to offer free patterns and project ideas for volunteers to work from. (Check out the pattern database here. If you’re a designer who’d like to donate a pattern, go here.)

The 2nd goal of PSP is to raise awareness about epilepsy, the 3rd most prevalent neurological disorder (next to stroke and Alzheimer’s). With every purple stitch made and every handmade item worn or carried, perhaps a collective conversation will begin about a disorder that surprisingly little is known about. It’s the PSP vision that one day, thousands of people will walk at the Nation Walk for Epilepsy wearing purple scarves and beanies.
Lastly, Purple Stitch Project, Inc is currently in the application process of becoming a 501(3)c charity to achieve its 3rd goal: raising money towards research grants and support programs initiated through the Epilepsy Foundation of America and the Epilepsy Foundation of Central & South Texas (of which PSP founder, Vickie Howell, has a seat on the board.)
Use your knitting, crocheting, or sewing skills to put a smile on a kid with epilepsy’s face. Join the Purple Stitch Project initiative today!
