Purple Day Goes International

This year Purple Day has gotten even bigger and on March 9th the Anita Kaufmann Foundation flew me to New York with my Mom and brother Chad for the USA launch of Purple Day. There was a huge party at Dylan’s candy Bar and me and my brother got a whole whack of candy! My mom didn’t get too much candy because she didn’t want to get an overload, sugar rush.

The party was on March 19th and a lot of people came and they took a lot of pictures of me and one of my new best friends, Jamie Paetz
