Continuing the Kidd’s Kids Tradition

For more than 25 years, Kidd’s Kids has taken children with life-threatening and life-altering conditions and their families on an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

For the ninth consecutive year, FUSION OF IDEAS has gratefully donated our app development and customization services to this amazing cause. Together with Best Buy and Microsoft, we provided and personally handed out customized Microsoft Surface laptops to each Kidd’s Kids family. Each laptop was personalized with trip information preloaded in the devices.

The gift of technology is an impactful one for the families. The children use these devices for schoolwork as well as entertainment when they are in the hospital, and for some, who are nonverbal, technology devices are valuable communication tools.

Kidd Kraddick founded Kidd’s Kids in 1991 with a dream to make a difference in the lives of children and their families who were dealing with life-altering conditions. The Irving, Texas-based organization has sent over 4,000 children and their families on a trip of a lifetime to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

6,200 entrepreneurs came together this weekend for our first conference bringing our event count to 17K+ attendees in 2019. I have a hard time processing that so many people would fly in from other countries and drive across states and pay for hotel rooms and get childcare and take on a thousand other hurdles I’ll never fully know but totally appreciate— just to be with us at a RISE weekend. I’m so grateful to EVERY attendee who put their faith in me and our team. I pray that each weekend was a blessing to you the way it was to us. Most importantly I feel honor bound to tell you that this year stretched me and challenged me in ways I can’t even explain. A year ago today I was looking at the audacious goals in front of me and felt nowhere near emotionally or physically strong enough to pull them off. I didn’t even know HOW we’d pull it off. To my knowledge, there isn’t another woman on earth who puts on multi day conferences / speaking each day for 4+ hours (or one time 6.5 because I went WAY over teaching / to crowds this size. When you’ve never done something before and haven’t ever seen someone like you do it either, it’s scary as hell to take it on. So I’ll tell you what I told my fellow entrepreneurs this weekend… the secret to how I achieved this success (and every other in my life) I took one more step. And then another. Even when it’s terrifying or you feel weary to the bone you can always take one more step forward. One more step. And another. It adds up. I finished up yesterday and as I sat on the plane home I said the most sincere prayer. I looked out the window and thought “Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God! Thank you for making me strong enough. Thank you for holding me up. Thank you for helping me take one more step. I hope when they looked at me they saw you. I hope when they heard me tell them I love them what they really heard was that YOU love them. I hope they know they are capable and worthy. I hope they saw your strength and your provision— even if I did drop a few f bombs. Thank you for showing me big dreams and for giving me big opportunity. Amen.” Thank YOU friends. #risebusiness #risexdallas #risexminn

The conference’s VIP experience included a wealth of exclusive opportunities like a VIP lounge, professional headshots and preferred seating. VIP attendees were also welcomed with swag bags that included personalized Apple AirPods, customized by FUSION OF IDEAS.

Apple Watch, Your Way

Personalization is the way of the future, at least according to Apple. At the Apple event earlier this week, the tech giant launched Apple Watch Studio, which lets you mix and match Apple Watch casings and straps to get the exact look that you want.

Taking it a step further, add your company logo or a custom design opens a branding opportunity for your business. It’s a gift-giving opportunity for your employees or a way to say “thank you” to a vendor or client.

Custom branding options on the Apple Watch:

  • Company or recipient name on the blank side of the case
  • Logo or design on the Watch button
  • Custom design or logo etched on the Sport Bands
  • Color logo or design on the charger

Being able to choose the material, style and color of your Apple Watch case and bands, there are over a 1,000 different watch customization options. Being able to add your own logo or design, the possibilities are endless. There is truly a watch for everyone.

Now Serving: Powerbeats Pro

True wireless earphones are dominating the audio market. They are compact, convenient and most offer excellent sound quality. Apple AirPods, as the first true wireless earphones on the market, have been the ones to beat. Since its initial launch in 2016, AirPods has been our most popular device for customization, particularly for corporate gifting. 

We’re thrilled about the latest release in this product category – Powerbeats Pro. Aimed at the sporty crowd, these wireless earphones have been rated highly for its design, sound and battery life.

As with any new product offering, we are excited to showcase the impactful brand experience through our customization services. Watch this video to see the power behind creating a memorable unboxing experience

An Employee Reward to Keep Them Going

Agile Physical Therapy, a privately owned physical therapy company, recently hosted its 17th Annual Agile State of the Company at its headquarters in Palo Alto, Calf. The event brought together its 125-plus person team to celebrate the successes of the past year and highlight where the company is headed.  

Prior to the annual gathering, Agile worked with FUSION OF IDEAS to customize 30 Apple AirPods that would be presented to select employees during the special event. The company’s logo was printed on the charging case and bonded with UV so it does not scratch, chip or fade.  

“We were so excited when we received our AirPods because they looked absolutely amazing,” said Chris Reed, CFO at Agile Physical Therapy. “We wanted to give a special appreciation gift to our loyal employees who have been with the company for over five years. It was our way of thanking them for their hard work and dedication to Agile.”

Founded in 2002, Agile Physical Therapy has more than 125 employees, including over 60 board-certified clinical specialists in orthopedics, sports, hand therapy or pelvic health.  The organization has locations across California in Palo Alto, San Mateo, Los Altos, and Los Angeles.

Agile is one of the thousands of organizations that FUSION OF IDEAS has partnered with to create custom-branded gifts as part of their employee rewards program. For more information about our customization services, visit
