Your Personal Page
Once you’ve registered, you can create your own personal page on the website to tell your story, post a photo, and of course, request donations. A standard greeting is provided, but personal stories have a tremendous impact. What does this cause mean to you? Why are you involved? Have you or someone close to you been touched by Epilepsy South Central Ontario? Who are you doing this for? What is your personal goal?

Dinner Party/Sporting Event - Next time you host a dinner party
or watch a sporting event with the gang, ask your guests to
bring a donation instead of wine.
Yard Sale - Sell things you don’t need any longer and donate the
profits to your team. You could even have a joint yard sale with
some of your team members.
Birthdays - Instead of gifts this year, ask for donations toward
Give-It-Up Campaign - Chose an item, set a timeline, and give it
up. Invite your friends, family, and co-workers to join you in a
give-it-up campaign or to create one of their own. That $5 latte
or $25 lunch can add up quickly.
Chef’s Table - Ask the owner of a restaurant you frequently eat at to reserve a Chef’s Table and promote that 50% of sales from that table will support Epilepsy South Central Ontario. You can create signage for the table with information about the Foundation and how guests are helping those effected by Epilepsy by eating at that table.
