Florida Brain Injury Fundraiser

Mothers_against_brain_injury  There is a new group formed in Florida, Mothers Against Brain Injury, Inc. that needs your help.

The group was founded in May of 2005 as a non profit organizaton by a group of mothers in Florida, all of whom have children that sustained severe traumatic brain damage.  As you can probably imagine, it is a parent’s worst nightmare to be notified that their child has been transported by Trauma One in “Life Threatening” condition to the nearest Trauma Center. Your immediate thoughts are to get to the hospital as quickly as possible to be with your child. There is no time to pack a bag or grab items for your own personal needs and once at the hospital nearly impossible to leave your child.

So, having been through the experience and after meeting each other through the recovery process, they realized there was a need to help other parents through this experience by providing personal toiletry items and other valuable items to parents upon their arrival at the Trauma Center to help them cope with the uncertain days ahead.  They began collecting items on  their own to create, fill and donate tote bags filled with these basic yet necessary items. Items such as shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, business card holders, journals, snack foods, phone cards and more are included. The cost to make 1 tote bag usually costs $40.00-$50.00 and all profits from their  fundraisers go directly towards the tote bags.

They will be hosting a Golf Tournament on Saturday May 13, 2006 at the Champions Club at Julington Creek Plantation, Florida. By donating Gift Certificates, Free Merchandise, Sponsoring a hole or simply signing up to play in this fundraiser, you will be supporting an endeavor to provide these tote bags to every parent who finds themselves in such a tragic circumstance.

The chairperson of the golf tournament is Brian Leonard.  Please contact  him if you are interested in helping to support this worthwhile organization. I am sure that they can use your help.
