Brains Worldwide Foundation Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement to Help Keep Children Safe from Undetected Concussions

Crowdfunding Campaign to Launch Dec. 1; Raising Funds to Protect
Children from the Hidden Dangers of Concussions Through Education,
Research, College Scholarships, and Home-Based, Objective Concussion
Assessment Technology

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Brains Worldwide Foundation NPF is joining #GivingTuesday, a
global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals,
communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate
generosity worldwide. As part of its participation, the foundation today
launched TheHiddenDanger.com,
a resource for raising awareness and research of undetected concussions
for children ages 8-18.

On #GivingTuesday (Dec. 1), the foundation will launch a crowdfunding
campaign to help raise funds for education on the hidden dangers of
undetected concussions, college scholarships for injured
student-athletes and a pilot study in which 150 families will receive
reduced-cost access to a new, home-based technology that provides
objective assessments of brain concussions.

“Current research reports as many as 3 million young athletes may be
walking around with undetected concussions,” said Oz Schaefer, inventor
and founder of Brains Worldwide Foundation. “But even one child is too
many. We’re excited to be a part of the #GivingTuesday initiative that
so perfectly aligns with our goal of giving back to the community by
helping families keep their children safe from the dangers of inaccurate
subjective assessments and undetected concussions.”

The Brains Worldwide Foundation mandate is to drive awareness of the
hidden dangers of brain concussions, conduct research on objective
assessment technologies for concussions and fund college scholarships
for injured student-athletes. The foundation is researching technology
developed by Brains Worldwide Inc. The home-based Objective Brain
Concussion Assessment Monitoring System™ will give families and
non-medical personnel the ability to objectively test the brain for
concussion symptoms with clinical accuracy. As a result, they will be
able to make more informed decisions about the symptoms and behaviors
they are seeing in their children. They can then seek medical help with
objective data and make smarter decisions about whether or not to let
their children return to the playing field following a documented
concussion.

What is #GivingTuesday?

92Y, a cultural center in New York City, conceptualized #GivingTuesday
as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities
and encourage giving.
