The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) established the National Brain Injury Information Center (NBIIC) to assist individuals and families who experience the life changing, sometimes devastating, effects of brain injury. Callers who dial 1-800-444-6443 are automatically linked to compassionate, knowledgeable specialists who assist in locating rehabilitative, legal, financial, and other support services critical to maximizing recovery. NBIIC offers accurate, user-friendly information about brain injury, provided by trained brain injury specialists.
BIAA is recruiting supporters who are willing to raise money for NBIIC, the helpline that connects individual callers to their state brain injury organizations for local information, resources, and support. The NBIIC program costs BIAA $157,653 per year to operate. Therefore, we need 365 people to host their own online fundraisers this summer with a goal of $432 each – the exact amount needed to run NBIIC for one day. Supporters have two easy and fun options to raise funds for NBIIC: via a Facebook Fundraiser or our crowdfunding platform, DonorPages.
