Scarlett Law Group encourages you to join the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) on December 1, 2015 to recognize #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity that harnesses the collective power of people, organizations, and communities to celebrate generosity and encourage philanthropy worldwide.
The Brain Injury Association of America has made it their mission to advance brain injury research, prevention, education, and treatment in order to improve the quality of life of people whose lives have been affected by brain injury. They are committed to increasing access to health care services and raising awareness of brain injury through a network of local chapters, support groups, and state affiliates.
As advocates for people who have suffered catastrophic brain injuries in preventable accidents, we at Scarlett Law Group have seen firsthand how profoundly an injured person’s life can change. That is why we support the BIAA’s mission and encourage others to lend their support as well.
How Can I Get Involved?
This #GivingTuesday, you can raise awareness about brain injury by taking photos of yourself with your Brain Injury Heroes. Examples of brain injury heroes include those who are living with a brain injury, medical professionals, caregivers, family members, and advocates. Then, post your pictures on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook along with the hashtag #BrainInjuryHero.
You can also help BIAA celebrate their 35th anniversary by making a donation on #GivingTuesday on their website. Visit www.biausa.org/givingtuesday, then click the green "Donate & Support" button. On the drop down menu, please select "Giving Tuesday."
In addition, Nutcase Helmets will be donating $5 from each $45 purchase through their website to BIAA on Dec. 1. BIAA supporters at Bravelets will also be donating $20 from each purchase of a BIAA bracelet on Giving Tuesday.
Help spread the word about the prevalence of brain injury by liking BIAA's Facebook page, and by following them on Twitter and Instagram and sharing your stories of how brain injury has impacted you.
