TopStory_F3729E82-2D78-11E0-8889-27D577B6D344December 3, 2013 — VALENCIA, Calif. — Girlfriends Films announces the selection of the Brain Trauma Foundation as its December charity. The non-profit organization, which works to improve the outcome of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patients, will receive $1,000 from the studio as a result.

On November 16, in Scottsdale, Arizona, a promising young and recently married engineer had a seemingly simple accident. He fell off the back of a golf cart, striking his head on pavement. He was immediately taken to the hospital where – due to the severity of his injury – two parts of his skull were removed to relieve pressure on the brain. Despite heroic efforts, the young man, Tony, died nine days later.

Girlfriends Films owner Dan O’Connell says, “Tony didn’t work at Girlfriends Films, but he is the brother-in-law of Moose, who heads up our sales & marketing effort, in addition to taking care of most of Girlfriends Films’ business affairs. Those who have watched our membership-site talk shows, or kept in touch with our forum, know Girlfriends Films has grown into a close family, from which nobody has ever quit or retired. We consider Tony a family member.”

This month, to honor Tony, Girlfriends Films is making a $1,000 donation to the Brain Trauma Foundation, headquartered in New York City. Founded in 1986, it facilitates research on brain injuries, publishes guidelines for treatment, and provides information for patients and families who deal with brain injuries. They even have a special program to assist field medics working in combat zones.

While nearly all of Girlfriends Films’ monthly donations are specified by its performers, the traditional year-end charity donations are selected by management to benefit customers, whether they are at the wholesale level or are our ultimate consumers. “This event was a reminder as to how unexpectedly catastrophic accidents can happen to any of us,” states O’Connell. “Hopefully, none of us will ever suffer such an occurrence; however, we give now so you and your families will benefit from their services if the unspeakable ever does happen.”

Girlfriends Films has a long history of charitable contributions, having donated over $20,000 in 2013. Each month a performer, director, or industry principal is selected as part of the studio’s charity program, and a donation of $1000 is given to a philanthropic organization of their choice.

Any Girlfriends Films performers interested in participating may apply by emailing the following information to PR@GirlfriendsFilms.com: name, AIP charity of choice, reason(s) for selecting the charity. Chosen performers will be asked to submit a personal photo depicting the performer engaged with the charity, the charity’s mission, or a similar charitable act. The photo will be used for promotional purposes.
