Join the movement - give the gift of neuroscience!
Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on November 30th, 2021. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Our goal is to distribute at least 120 Brain Boxes to students in our community, and we need your help!

On Giving Tuesday, we want to raise enough funds to supply 120 Brain Boxes to students in our community.
Since 2010, our success in bringing neuroscience education to the community has been made possible thanks to people just like you. With your generous contributions, last year we provided 97 Brain Boxes to students despite school closures. Students and teachers both reported that it was the highlight of a difficult year. One teacher wrote to us,
"I hope that you all can visit other schools as well because you really are making memorable experiences for students!"
The Brain Boxes are designed for students to use independently, and include all information and materials needed for 10 exciting neuroscience and mindfulness activities!
*Brain Boxes will be delivered directly to schools in March, in celebration of Brain Awareness Week (March 15 - March 20)
