Hi, I was just looking to see if you could text a donation eg Purple Day and so your text donation on this page, I personally think £5.00 is a lot to ask people, for example £3 would be more realistic to people, also Epilepsy Society have got a Text a Purple Day Pound, which is better, which is even better, more people are likely to take part in this then E.A £5 one, people are just being asked so many times re fundraising, so in my oppion low fig is better than to high.

All have a lovely Purple Day at E.A.
