Stars put pen to paper for National Doodle Day

To celebrate National Doodle Day on Feb. 6, a host of celebrities have created their own doodle to raise money for Epilepsy Action. And you can join in too.

Love doodling? If you find it hard to resist when there’s a scrap piece of paper lying around, then National Doodle Day is for you. It’s simple: do a doodle, donate a pound to help support the 600,000 people who live with epilepsy in the U.K. and get all your doodling friends and family involved too.

So far over £295,000 has been raised for the cause and many celebrity doodlers have got involved too. Check out some of this year’s star doodles:

Do you find yourself doodling the same thing again and again and wonder what it says about your personality? Here’s some insight from the National Doodle Day experts:

If you draw circular and rounded shapes like spirals, suns, flowers, faces, balloons, rings, clocks, etc., you’re an emotional sort who wants love and dreams of peace.

If you draw square shapes or objects with flat surfaces such as boxes, houses, tables, books, towers, ladders, etc., you’re likely to be a practical, down-to-earth type who likes to feel secure and in control.

If you draw triangular objects or things with pointed shapes such as stars, arrows, zig-zags, diamonds, kites, etc., you’re probably a driven person, who needs to find an outlet for your mental and physical energy.
