BIAA Celebrates Brain Injury Heroes on #GivingTuesday


Vienna, Va. – The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is inviting brain injury advocates across the country to join us in recognizing #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations in order to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide. The event takes place November 29, 2016.

More than 2.5 million people in the United States sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBI) each year, and 1 million more experience strokes and other acquired brain injuries. At least 5.3 million Americans live with TBI-related disabilities.
To help raise awareness of brain injury on #GivingTuesday, BIAA is asking people to share photos of their brain injury heroes – people who are living with the effects of brain injury, family caregivers, advocates, or medical professionals – and post those pictures on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #BrainInjuryHero.
BIAA is partnering with QCard to increase awareness of brain injury throughout the month of November. QCard, founded by TBI survivor Sergio Di Giovanni, will be matching all donations in support of #GivingTuesday. To make your donation, click here. Brain Injury Awareness Pins are also available for purchase in our marketplace at a reduced price of two for $15.
