Our charity for the 2012 season is the Brain Injury Alliance of Wyoming. Just like last year, we will be selling raffle tickets to auction off gift baskets filled with a variety of goodies donated by our members and vendors. We are also selling gift bags at the front counter to wrap your gifts for you, so 100% of the proceeds from the raffle and gift bags will go to support the Brain Injury Alliance.
This great organization provides a wide range of help, hope and healing to brain injury survivors, their families and caregivers. There is NO cure- recovery varies for each person, so prevention is very important. They work to prevent brain injuries by:
* Providing free helmets for children as well as educating all ages how to minimize the risk of brain injury
*Hosting awareness walks
*Providing concussion information to school districts, coaches, parents and athletes
*Advocating for brain healthy policies and laws
*Educating the public about fall risks for the elderly
They also provide brain injury education, individual case consulting, information and referral services to professionals in hospitals, schools, and the Department of Corrections.
