Do You Know What The Epilepsy Foundation Or Its Equivalent In Your Nation (or Even What Your Regional One Does)?

While I have discovered while looking for friends for the Epilepsy Foundation in Canada and Australia, I have not only found that they have a different name in those nations. And there are also other organizations in those nations which strictly focus on getting charitable donations to pay for the research into Epilepsy research there.

I live in Western Australia. We have support groups and others in them who we can catch up with any time we like. Funds are raised for the Epilepsy Foundations. They are all wonderful. We dont have to pay for anything involving seizures or the cause if there is one.

I have been a member of the Epilepsy Foundation, for a long time, as I have been a donor to further their research, and to help those who suffer from epilepsy. Their headquarter are in Washington D.C., but they do have an office in West Los Angeles, and another one in Orange County.
Besides working to cure epilepsy, they also provide education on epilepsy, through free workshops, as well as send kids, who suffer from this disorder, to summer camps. They hold runs and other events, to raise money for research, some taking place at the Rose Bowl stadium.
I have never had direct contact, with the foundation, however, when I graduated high school, in 1974, I received a $100 gift certificate for Sears, for a new wardrobe, for college. I have no idea as to how they got my information, but I believe that this girl, who was in my graduating class, and who I was friends with, gave them my name and information.
I donate about $300 a year, because I believe that their research will end epilepsy.
