About BANGONABEANIE AND NATIONAL ABI WEEK

“The BANGONABEANIE Campaign is simple - buy and proudly wear our trademark blue beanie to support National Brain Injury Awareness Week”.BANGONABEANIE is the National campaign for Brain Injury Awareness Week (17 - 23 August 2015), supporting over1.6 million Australians. In 2011 Synapse, in association with Brain Injury Associations across Australia, began work on transforming an "Invisible Disability" into a very visible one. Each year our campaign has grown to include more partners, exposure in different countries, and most importantly, more families reconnected” – courtesy of the Synapse website.

BANGONABANIE

Why BANGONABEANIE?

BECAUSE buying just one beanie will help improve the level of support to families.  In turn you will also be showing the 1 in 12 Australians with a Brain Injury they are not alone.

BECAUSE without Brain Injury organisations, everyday mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters would be left without the support they so desperately need when trying to reconnect their lives after a brain injury.

BECAUSE BANGONABEANIE supports one of the largest and most disadvantaged disability groups in Australia, and works to transform an 'Invisible Disability' into a very visible one.

-  you’re invited to the official launch of Brain Injury Awareness Week and the national BANGONABEANIE Campaign.  The launch will be hosted by Speaker of the House the Hon Elise Archer MP on Monday 17th August at Parliament House from 12:00pm.
