In 2013, Pilot International introduced the “Pick Me Ups” initiative for Family Caregivers.
Pilot International stands poised to support countless caregivers around the globe and promote awareness for the demands and challenges they face daily. Pilots uplift and appreciate caregivers by providing needed services or small gifts to brighten their day, also known as Pick Me Ups. Many Pilot Clubs work with The Brain Injury Association of America to support and sustain exemplary camps for individuals with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). These camps offer a positive experience for the campers while also providing a much-needed respite for their caregivers. At its most fundamental level, the Pick Me Up program provides additional care and kindness to caregivers, individuals and groups. The program is made possible by a private donation to Pilot International. Pilot International also created and supports International Care & Kindness Week that brings awareness to how simple acts can change a life by showing someone you care.
