National Doodle Day

National Doodle Day takes place annually on 5 February. National Doodle Day was first established in 2004 to raise money for Epilepsy Action, which acts as a voice not only for the 600,000 people in the UK who are thought to have epilepsy, but also their friends and family.

Doodling may look meaningless and bizarre at first, however the things you draw represent the subconscious out pouring a of your mind and a pattern or shape represents a facet of your personality in some way. For instance If you draw boxes, it usually means you’re highly organised! Or, if you draw triangles and other pointy shapes you’re likely to be very determined! Size and spacing also has meaning as do love hearts, stars and flowers which usually mean you are peaceful and ‘irrepressibly romantic’!

The money raised goes towards helping people whose lives are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. A number of celebrities have also taken part and doodled for charity, like Gok Wan, Joanna Lumley and Rita Ora.
