BRACKETS FOR GOOD

BFG.org is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that hosts online, bracket-style fundraising tournaments with selected non-profit organizations across America to raise awareness and funds, in support of their missions. Participating non-profit organizations compete to out-fundraise their opponents. Charities retain their donations raised and donor information made during the tournament, regardless of advancement. The winner in each city will also receive a grand prize donation from the title sponsor.

This is Competitive Giving; Everybody Wins!

ASIF AND BFG TOGETHER

March 1st is Self-Injury Awareness Day (SIAD) world-wide. ASIF declared the month of March to be “Adolescent Self-Injury Awareness Month.” Every March, the rates of youth self-injury and suicidal behaviors escalate. Parents are caught off-guard and are ill-prepared to intervene. “A Different Kind of March Madness Campaign” is the name ASIF has created for their participation in the Brackets for Good Competition.

WHERE DO YOUR DONATIONS GO?

Your donations to ASIF will go towards creating positive outcomes for young self-injurers and their families. By donating to ASIF, you will help save the lives of vulnerable teens in pain while also providing much-needed guidance and education to families and schools.

 

Funding is needed to help ASIF with the following efforts:

 

- Social media and marketing outreach efforts targeted towards those in need of help. This is vital in order to change the conversation about self-injury from one of "doom and gloom" to one of hope and recovery.

 

- Workshops to train counselors, teachers, nurses and administrators of public and private schools to better understand the unique needs of the adolescent self-injurious student.

 

- Promote and implement future nationwide education conferences aimed to "train the trainers". A planned program to help professionals in the field hone their skills in providing appropriate and up to date treatment to those struggling with self-injury.  

 

- Improve the foundation's ability to provide real time support to affected adolescents, families and professionals.
