BENEFITING: Life After Brain Injury
EVENT DATE: Dec 02, 2014
#GivingTuesday occurs on December 2nd this year, right after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is considered to be the biggest charitable giving day of the year. Thousands of organizations promote the idea of #GivingTuesday every year to get people excited about charitable giving.
Donate here on Crowdrise to our #GivingTuesday campaign or go to our website (www.lifeafterbraininjury.org). Also, remind everyone what giving without expectations is all about and how great it feels! Join the movement and make a donation to your favorite causes (we hope Life After Brain Injury is one of them!).
Here's how your donation will help:
$15 pays for one month of website hosting (key to raising awareness about brain injury and our free services).
$25 covers the expense of sending out our newsletter each month to survivors who don't have email.
$35 is our cost to provide a survivor with one hour of individualized training or assistance around an Independent Living issue, such as learning to use public transit; obtaining benefits; finding affordable, accessible housing; pursuing employment and/or additional education.
$100 pays all the expenses involved in presenting a one-hour community workshop and training survivors how to use the most common compensatory strategies. This includes hand-outs and notebooks.
$250 buys 1,000 brochures that we post in medical and therapists' offices to let the brain injury community know about our free services.
$500 is what we spend on gasoline every six months providing transportation for survivors who couldn't otherwise participate in meetings and activities.
