We need each other!
The original ‘Brain Injury Global Picnics’ were a success because people came together to make it happen.
“By sharing each little thing in some way that is beyond the thought in our minds, we add an energy -we add ripples that go out into the pond.
We gain a greater voice. Not a ‘louder’ one, but a ‘greater’ one.”
To create change and to continue to everything we can to improve the brain injury recovery experience for everyone we need to work together to create and maintain momentum.
“When we focus on purpose, upon serving, our challenges are met by the sheer momentum following our purpose creates.”
