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.
