As many know my wife has had epilepsy for over thirty years and we are large advocates with supporting raising Epilepsy Awareness. A couple years ago, the Purple Pumpkin Project began. While on a drive through Connecticut one Sunday morning with his family, founder Ron Lamontagne was brainstorming ideas on how to spread epilepsy awareness. The local pumpkin patch provided the solution. Since kids would soon be carving and decorating pumpkins, he thought why not make one purple and tell people about epilepsy when asked, “Why is your pumpkin purple?”
We have been making sure one of our pumpkins is decorated in purple during October right into November for Epilepsy Awareness month. I used the comic book features on Book Creator and then used iMovie to make a fun and simple little “Why is your pumpkin purple?” movie.
