Active Hope Generates Brain Injury Awareness
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 15, 2016, VICTORIA BC – June is designated as Brain Injury Awareness month and Hope Generator, Janelle Breese Biagioni intends to end the month with a loud thunder clap of understanding.
Brain injury is at epidemic proportions in Canada and is the #1 killer and disabler of young people under the age of 44. The consequences of brain injury is disruptive and devastating not only to the survivors but also to family members, caregivers and support workers.
This is why Biagioni, a professional counsellor and brain injury support worker, has set up a much anticipated Twitter event to ensure the affects of brain injury is heard far and wide in this country and perhaps beyond. On June 30 the Twitter airways will be aflutter with messages from industry staff, community leaders, politicians, family and survivors themselves all showing support for this much misunderstood issue.
Coast to Coast beginning at 1pm Eastern Time / 10am Pacific Time tweeting will begin. Victoria’s Mayor, Lisa Helps will be joining in on this captivating initiative.
Mayor Helps is leading a highly emotive initiative to end homelessness in this city. Brain injury is found to be a major contributor to the homeless question and anything that can be done to lessen the incident of both injury and homelessness is appreciated.
The public is invited to participate in this social media extravaganza. It is recommended that 10 tweets are sent out within an hour using prescribed hashtags specially created for the occasion.
Full details of the event and hashtags can be seen at www.TheHopeGenerator.com.
Tweeting itself won’t solve the issue for those living with the affects of brain injury, however the awareness gained and the spiralled up understanding of how we are all affected will go a long way in helping to ease the burden in a multitude of ways.
Join in and tweet and let’s share in the solution as a team, community and country.
