Pain in Full Colour and

Best Dressed in Orange for CRPS Awareness

Thanks to the amazing support of Hervey Bay businesses, the incredible talents of Nadia Vanek from Three Owls Body Art and Kelli McAlpine from Healing Canvas Body Painting, we were able to demonstrate, for the first time ever, what CRPS and Persistent Pain may look like, and we received heaps of help colouring the world orange for CRPS Awareness, November 2018. In doing so many more people have learned about Complex Regional Pain
Syndrome.

2016

The Man From Snowy River Bush Festival

The Purple Bucket Foundation Inc, attended the 2016 Man From Snowy River Bush Festival introducing our Bucket of Hope 'BOH' and raising awareness in remote and rural communities. We also attended the Festival for a few more years as Gate Wardens, which enabled us to continue to raise awareness. 

BOH was a massive hit and we look forward to having a professional mascot made one day.
