Brain Injury Awareness Week 2014. 11th-17th August.

BrainLink is part of the BANGONABEANIE National campaign supporting the over 1.6 million Australians affected by Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). The campaign encourages people to buy and proudly wear a blue beanie in support of Brain Injury Awareness Week.

 

 

Get Involved

 

In support of Acquired Brain Injury Awareness Week, we are asking Victorians to participate in one (or more!) of four ways:

 

BANGONABEANIE

 

Get your free BANGONABEANIE beanie by placing a donation with BrainLink for $30 or more during the month of August (We will contact you after your donation to arrange shipping).

 

Your donation will go toward improving essential and much needed services for this "Invisible Disability", including accommodation, support and resources. Whether you realise it or not, we all know someone affected by ABI... they contribute to our community and deserve our support. 

 

 

BANGONABARBIE in August

 

Host your own barbeque during the month of August and raise funds for BrainLink.  As well as having a great time, enjoying all that yummy tucker (don't forget the vegetarian options), you can also help raise awareness (and $$$) for a great cause: the 1.6 million Australians who are affected by Acquired Brain Injury. 

 

Click the 'Start Fundraising' button on this page. Invite your friends and collect donations for BrainLink.

The Facts 

 

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is a very common a injury caused by a traumatic event, from an external force to the brain such as a motor vehicle accident, a fall or a blow to the head.

With your help we want to show the community how to send a message of support to all those adults and children living with a brain injury:

  • Because the "one punch didn't kill"
  • As a result of falls, motor cycle and motor vehicle accidents, and other trauma
  • As a result of degenerative diseases, brain tumours, Dementia, Parkinson's, Huntington's, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy and other brain illnesses
  • As a result of stroke, alcohol, drug abuse, concussion or repeated knocks to the head from sports. 

 

ABI affects over 1.6 million Australians (that's 1 in 12) and over 1 billion people worldwide.
