“Wearing something with a logo of an organization that is close to my heart is personal to me. Not only is it a conversation starter, it is also a reminder of why I am a part of Kids of Courage.”
These were the words of Josh, a recipient of a custom branded Apple AirPods Max from Kids of Courage. Josh, who was gifted the device as a recognition for his fundraising efforts, proudly dons his new wireless headphones even though he is not “a regular headphone user.”
Kids of Courage is a New York-based nonprofit organization that gives children with medical illnesses opportunities to participate in year-round activities and medically supervised trips.
“We love to give personalized technology to our supporters because it is unique and different,” said Naftali Solomon, Kids of Courage Director of Operations. “While the gifts are not the reason why they fundraise, our families and volunteers love to see the incentive list and find something to set their goal for.”
Since 2019, the organization has offered Kids of Courage branded premium gifts, including high-tech products as perks for families and volunteers to reach fundraising goals. Past gifts have included: Apple iPad, Beats Powerbeats Pro, Apple Watch and Apple AirPods Pro.
Naftali added, “The positive feedback we have gotten is encouraging, and it is a win-win situation to be able to thank our supporters and at the same time, further the organization’s mission.”
“…He wasn’t thinking about gaming or social media. He was just relieved to know that he would no longer have to struggle to find a way to complete his online school work.”
This testimonial came from the director of child life services for Hurley Children’s Hospital in Michigan after gifting a personalized Apple iPad to an in-patient teen through the Toys for Hospitalized Children’s Tablet for Teens program.
In addition to the tablet itself, the teen was also gifted with a subscription to Hulu, which he can watch movies on his iPad to keep him entertained while in the hospital. He was thrilled to be able to easily access his school work and stay connected with friends.
This year, Toys for Hospitalized Children is prepared to give several iPads to teens at Hurley Children’s Hospital. Home and lock screens are customized on each tablet with the organization’s eye-catching logo.
“We began the Tablets for Teens program last year and saw first-hand how much the teens’ moods and spirits were lifted through the gifts we brought,” said JJ Hecht, president at Toys for Hospitalized Children. “The teenage demographic can often be overlooked when it comes to visits and presents in the hospital. Because of this, we are inspired to give more and this year, we customize the tablets to make them more personal.”
Toys for Hospitalized Children has partnered with more than 70 hospitals throughout the country to bring happiness and healing to children suffering from illness. Through their Tablet for Teens program, the Flint, Mich.,-based nonprofit organization helps teenagers “cope through scary, painful or stressful experiences” through gifts that keep them entertained and connected.

As the second-largest private owner of freestanding veterinary hospitals in the U.S., Pet Partners specializes in purchasing neighborhood veterinary practices and hospitals, and providing the behind-the-scenes support so veterinarians can focus on providing patient care.
The company’s Operations Support Center (OSC) team works with practices for behind-the-scenes support to help with financial, technology, human resources, purchasing or other business management needs. Pet Partners’ community ranges in size from private clinics to large group animal hospitals.
When a practice is acquired, Pet Partners equips the veterinarian with an iPad that is custom branded with the Pet Partners logo. The device contains preloaded content so it is ready for use with all the necessary tools for the doctor to run the hospital. Finally, a custom device sleeve printed with a Pet Partner image and a welcome note encloses the device, delivering an unprecedented unboxing experience.
Pet Partners bridges the gap between veterinary medicine practice and business operations. By providing the resources needed all on a mobile device, veterinarians are able to run their practice autonomously.
