#wearitpurple at Paradise Resort

Did you know that every 33 minutes, a life is turned upside down by epilepsy? It’s the reason that every March, the world turns purple – to support the 65 million people living with epilepsy.

At Paradise Resort, we’re doing our bit to raise much needed funds and awareness. We’re getting in on Make March Purple, an Australia-wide campaign that is supported by epilepsy organisations across the country, as well as the national peak body, Epilepsy Australia.

We recognise the importance of spreading awareness and raising funds for this important cause. Epilepsy – the tendency to have recurring seizures – is caused by abnormal electrical activity somewhere in the brain. While all cases of epilepsy look different, epilepsy organisations share a common goal: to increase awareness of epilepsy in the community, while supporting people with epilepsy.

They do this by providing information, counselling, education, training and advocacy services to people with epilepsy and their families, schools, health professionals and disability services.

At Paradise Resort, we believe it is our job to help raise the funds and awareness necessary to help Epilepsy Queensland do this important work. That is why we are throwing a #wearitpurple event right here at the resort, on Saturday March 26. 

Visitors won’t just be able to support Epilepsy Queensland – they’ll also have a tonne of fun. We have loads of activities starting from 1pm, and it’s so easy for you to get involved.

In the lead up to the day, you can donate as little as $5 via our website. Your donations won’t just help us support Epilepsy Queensland, but will also see us honour some fun (and frightening) pledges, including…

  • Sliming the Entertainment Manager when we reach Goal 1 of $500 
  • Sliming the Food and Beverage Manager when we reach Goal 2 of $1000
  • Sliming the Operations Manager when we reach Goal 3 of $2000
  • Sliming the General Manager when we reach Goal 4 of $3000
  • Sliming the whole Bar and Entertainment Team on Facebook live (to the world!) when we reach Goal 5 of $4000

To get involved, all you need to do is select your desired donation amount and check our socials for updates. This ongoing fundraiser will end with our special event on Saturday March 26 – that will also be when we slime our team, with a special guest and Paradise Resort mascot, Astro.

Our #wearitpurple event is shaping up to be a very exciting day. In addition to the sliming, we’re also hosting a tonne of activities. Among them…

  • A Purple Jelly Challenge
  • Our unmissable Purple Dunk Tank
  • Purple Balloon Animals made before your very eyes!
  • Purple Face Painting to help you get into the spirit

To keep you hydrated, there will also be some tasty cocktail and mocktail specials. They include…

  • Purple Dreams $15
  • Queen’s Royale $16
  • Astro’s Purple Potion $9.50

The best part is, while you’re having fun #wearingitpurple, all the money raised will be going directly to Epilepsy Queensland. It’s a fun family day out that you can feel really good about!

Don’t forget to make your donation online to support Epilepsy Queensland and help us achieve our five fundraising goals. Then, tell your friends about our #wearitpurple event on Saturday March 26 and come along to see the Paradise Resort team get slimed!
