WE ARE A SUPPORTER
What does it mean when we say we are a SUPPORT or SUPPORTER of a certain person, organization, or website?
HOPE TBI can show support by recognizing and celebrating specific people, groups, and organizations who share specific education, support, awareness, rehabilitation processes, program development, community involvement, and/or vision of bringing awareness to Polytrauma or Brain Injury. While not an exhaustive list of great resources, when we offer SUPPORT, more often than not we have experienced help from them directly, know someone who has, or believe in their specific cause.
What does it mean when we say we have a SPONSOR?
Being sponsored means that an individual or a company believes in you and what you’re doing and wants to help. They may approach you and offer to sponsor you in exchange for promotion – (a video, a link in an article, financial support, or even a social media status).
Those interested in SPONSORING this Website and its content, please contact Caren at firstname.lastname@example.org

CHARITABLE DONATION RECOMMENDATIONS
If you want to help a cause, a person, an organization, etc by donating your time, items, services, or money, making a decision to donate to charity is an obvious choice. However, for most people, deciding to donate is the easy part – deciding where to donate is much harder.

This is not an exhaustive list of all the wonderful places available to help others out there, however ones we have had experience with directly, or first hand knowledge about, and can vouch for their authenticity, and follow through (referrals here does not mean we necessarily embrace their specific belief systems, but rather the work they are doing for the good of the whole person):
