How it all began

Like many good ideas National Doodle Day began over a drink with friends. From a simple idea grew a unique, fun and fantastically simple fundraising event that everyone could be a part of.

Over the years the event has seen thousands of celebrities, schools, individuals and organisations come together all in the name of doodling!

What’s it all about?

National Doodle Day is a fundraising event which is owned by, and raises money for, Epilepsy Action (Registered charity in England 234343). By simply donating a pound to do a doodle over £275,000 has been raised to help support the 600,000 people in the UK living with epilepsy.

There are lots of ways you can get involved and celebrate National Doodle Day. You can do a doodle, bid for your favourite celebrity doodle or organise an event in your school, workplace or local community.
