Each person in the brain injury community has their own unique form of personal empowerment.

That’s why at BEST, we help people, who have a canvas at the ready, with the tools, strategies and resources to help them tap into their own kind of creativity and empowerment that works best for them. 

Add that to the exciting idea of the power of being an actual artist. 

We see our community as Empowerment Artists, and there is no such thing as failure.

We’ve already begun with success by being (empowerment) artists already.

Together, let’s make beautiful and important empowerment art on our journey forward after brain injury.  

Here’s your chance to practice the artistry of sharing your care, along with supporting others on their empowerment journey. 

The Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, December 3, 2019. 

Our theme? The Art of Empowerment

Our goal is to raise $5K to fund the learning materials for online and in person educational opportunities and special events to help empowerment artists practice their craft. 

Donations of any amount help.

Now, through the Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday) event (which is the international celebration and day of giving back to causes you care about, on Tuesday, December 3, 2019), BESTies can take their giving stories for BEST to the next level! 

Introducing the #MyGivingStory event! BESTies can share their stories on why they give back to the Brain Energy Support Team and the brain injury community. By sharing your stories, and getting votes, you can possibly win $10k for our organization. More importantly, you can share your care for BEST with the world! 

That’s ALL pretty SUPER! 

You can also be eligible for other smaller (but no less important) prizes, too. 

How you enter #MyGivingStory  is noted below. 

Enjoy and thank you for sharing your stories. You are the BEST!

Thank you! 

From the #MyGivingStory website:  

Entering #MyGivingStory is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Write or Record Your #MyGivingStory. Think of a story, experience, or person that inspired you to give.
  2. Post Your Story.
  3. Share Your Story on Social Media. The more votes you get, the better your chances of winning.

Entries will be accepted through December 3rd, which is Giving Tuesday. Remember, the earlier you enter, the more time you have to get votes and the more chances you have to win sweepstakes prizes—including a daily drawing for a custom Giving Tuesday beanie and twice weekly drawings to designate $500 for your favorite nonprofit organization.

Every act of giving has a story. What’s yours?
