Okay so here’s the deal…
November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month and Meggers and I want to get the word out about “Talk About It”, a website created by Greg Grunberg (from Heroes) in collaboration with the Epilepsy Foundation to engage people to talk about epilepsy more to end the stigma.
The plight to find a cure and fight the stigma is near and dear to our hearts as our own Meggers lives with Epilepsy. So we decided what better way to get the word out than to do a giveaway right?! right! So what are we going to giveaway you ask?
Meggers and I discussed it and we thought with Christmas right around the corner her favorite Christmas DVD “Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas” would be the perfect giveaway.
So here are the rules…
1. In one of your blog posts add one of the cool “Talk About It” Buttons accompanied with it’s fact asking your readers to check it out. Not sure what I’m talking about click the Buttons link and I’ll wait for you to come back…
Okay got it? Cool! The idea here is to educate people and dispel myths associated with epilepsy. If you don’t want to do a post you can add the button below to your blogroll (sidebar).
2. Leave a link to your post or tell me you’ve added the button to your sidebar in the comment area.
3. For extra credit, I mean an extra chance to win you can post a comment or tweet telling us a fact you’ve learned about epilepsy. Easy enough right?
The last day to enter to win this giveaway will be Nov 30th and Meg will reveal the winner on Dec 1st. Meg and I thank you for taking the time to learn about epilepsy and wish you Luck!

I’d put this up even without the giveaway. I’ll try to remember to link this up when I’m home tonight!
You Rock Lisa!!
Hey there! I feel so proud. I knew “what to do”! In HS a girl in one of my classes had a seizure. Thank god the teacher knew what to do. In addition to what they taught on the site, he reminded us that after you turn the person on their side and make them “safe” take two steps back. He told us never to try to hold a seizing person. People can sometimes hurt themselves on other people.
I’m off to go throw up your link. Thanks for reminding me to give this some thought. With so many health issues out there, it’s hard to keep them all in mind, but it’s important.
Have a good holiday! MB
I’m dedicating tomorrow to you, Kirst!
@Mama Badger You should be proud a lot of people actually don’t know to turn a person on their side and you should never try to hold a person or put your fingers in their mouth. Happy Holidays to you too thanks! Thanks again and consider yourself entered.
