“We are visual creatures. When you doodle an image that captures the essence of an idea, you not only remember it, but you also help other people understand and act on it – which is generally the point of meetings in the first place.” – Tom Wujec
History of National Doodle Day
National Doodle Day was first established by Epilepsy Action in the year 2004. Epilepsy Action is an organization which aims at helping the people who have Epilepsy, a disorder in which the nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, and it causes seizures. National Doodle Day by this organization will invite all the doodlers as to doodle for fun and help them raise a ton of the Epilepsy research and support. “Drawing a line through epilepsy” is the tagline that heads the campaign. The participants can take part by submitting their doodle, along with a small donation. The Doodle Day team then judges the best doodles among all others doodlers who had participated in the event as to provide them with a chance of winning a prize. It doesn’t stop with the prize rather their artistic doodle will get displayed in the National Doodle Day’s Hall of Fame. Doodle Day celebrations had so far had raised funds over £15,300 for Epilepsy Action. The fund has supported 600,000 people living with epilepsy by giving them the specialist advice and thus enabling the people to live free from stigma, prejudice, and discrimination. Every doodle art will somehow support a person to get away from the deadly disease. Let your hands draw a doodle to support a life of others.
