Hjärnfonden´s is a non-profit fundraising foundation without state support, founded in 1994 with the vision that no one should suffer from diseases, injuries or disabilities in the brain. The foundation is completely dependent on gifts and wills from private individuals and on corporate collaborations. It collects and distributes money for researches and informing about the whole brain and all its diseases, injuries and disabilities. Hjärnfonden supports first-class Swedish researchers and research groups with the goal of finding new, effective treatments and to intensify vital researches along with the development and potential of the healthy brain. The foundation constantly are working on increase the gifts to researches by increasing knowledge and commitment about the brain and the importance of research through information, lectures and seminars. Brain researches are in great need of more money, especially for their researches with children. Each gift is very important to keep more brains healthy longer.
We chose to support BarnHjärnfonden because kids always need our help, no matter what! Today, there is too little known about the childs brain, more researches are needed for more knowledge.
Every year, thousands of Swedish children suffer and figures show that more and more young people are suffering from mental illness. It can mean anything from feeling strong anxiety, depression, sadness, fear, anxiety, depression to suicidal thoughts.
This is a development we must figh because childrens brain should be full of fun thoughts, dreams and a thousand different questions – not diseases, injuries and other things that make life difficult. A single research breakthrough can save the lives of many children, but even small discoveries can make a big difference for both the children affected and their families.
There is hope in the strength of the mass, we can do this together!
The next 4 Fridays, we will hopefully be able to enjoy each others company, tying flies and as before, an auciton of the flie(s) tied LIVE will be auctioned out and donated 100% to Hjärnfonden.
