Brain Injury Awareness Week POSTPONED
In light of the tragedy that unfolded in Christchurch on Friday (15th March 2019) the Brain Injury Association (Hawke’s Bay) has decided to postpone our annual appeal and #Blackout for Brain Injury day.
We believe this time needs to be spent acknowledging the victims and heroes of this horrendous attack and supporting the fundraising efforts that are taking place.
#Blackout for Brain Injury Day: POSTPONED
The campaign #Blackout for Brain Injury is a chance for people to think about the impact of Brain Injury and team up with us to start a conversation and lift the stigma that can sometimes be attached to suffering a Brain Injury.
We challenge you to get your workplace, school, sports club, friends and family on board and get involved!! Check out this page for the two simple steps you need to take to be a part of #Blackout for Brain Injury plus register your involvement so we can make sure we share your contribution with Hawke’s Bay.
Step 1: Awareness Activities for #Blackout for Brain Injury Day
It’s easy… New date TBC soon when everyone involved are encouraged to wear BLACK and to add the Blackout frame on social media.
We also want to encourage people to be posting about their involvement on Facebook, Instagram etc and on their websites.
The Facebook frame can be found by going on Facebook selecting add a frame then searching – blackout for brain injury (any combinations similar to this will also find it, and then clicking add frame – we want them to do this on Friday 22 March 2019.
Also post as much as you like about your involvement leading up to and on the day. We also really want to encourage you to use hashtags #blackoutforbraininjury and #braininjuryhb
