People with epilepsy experience surges in electrical signals in the brain, leading to recurring seizures. According to the Mayo Clinic, a variety of factors can cause this disorder, including genetics, diseases, and head trauma. The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida works to prevent the onset of epilepsy and improves the quality of life for people with seizure disorders.
The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida distributes bike helmets to economically disadvantaged children to save lives during accidents and reduce head-trauma-induced conditions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration determined that if children universally wore helmets while biking, it would prevent roughly 40,000 head injuries every year, which would also reduce the risk of youth developing epilepsy.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help reduce the risk of head trauma for bicycling youth. A private donor has pledged to match G-Team donations up to $10,000, so each $10 donated ultimately purchases a $20 donation. If G-Team members raise $300, then the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida and its private donor can distribute 120 bicycle helmets to underserved students. Each additional $10 raised up to $10,000 will provide four more students with helmets, and each additional $10 raised after that will provide two more students with helmets.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
