Children are the future; thus, BrainSaves mission is to provide helmets for typical and atypical children that might not have the resource for one.

We strive to keep activities children love like learning how to ride a bike, playing football, and in some cases riding on the back of a motorcycle as safe as possible. The helmets will be donated to the youth programs in Worcester, Massachusetts, along with orphanages and other organizations throughout Morocco.
