BridgingApps

http://www.BridgingApps.org

BridgingApps.org is a program of Easter Seals Greater Houston that provides resources, education, and information on apps and mobile devices to help people with disabilities target and improve skills and reach their highest levels of physical, social, and cognitive development. Given the rising number of apps on the market and the diverse skills of children and adults with special needs, their goal is to provide caregivers and professionals with the best resources for choosing apps to enhance everyday life for people with disabilities and sharing their successes with others.

In collaboration with speech language pathologists and occupational therapists, they created an app review system that focuses on skills rather than age, diagnosis or developmental level to help improve outcomes for a person with a disability. BridgingApps relies on professionals who work with people with disabilities as well as crowdsource user experiences to constantly review and update their database of over 3,500 apps.

SkivieGivie.org

http://www.skiviegivie.org

SkivieGivie.org aims to raise awareness about the need for one of life’s most basic necessities; undergarments. The non-profit collects and donates these undergarments to less fortunate homeless individuals at area hospitals, shelters and other transitional centers. It has been a whirlwind of activity since the inception and we look forward to the challenges ahead of making an impact on this problem that affects hundreds of thousands of individuals, including many United States Veterans (many whom have served in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afhanistan) on a daily basis.

Patriot Threads

http://www.patriotthreads.org

Patriot Threads was founded by a 17 year-old student named Brady Fernandes. Raised in the South, Brady saw a need in the marketplace for high-quality classic Southern style clothing with a patriotic flair. It was really very simple: he wanted to take all the modern design elements of today’s youthful trends and tie these in with his love of Country, Southern tradition and an outgoing lifestyle to create an iconic brand that you would be proud to wear. This became the brand Patriot Threads. Brady also has a passion for helping others and was inspired to donate a portion of all sales to charities that support wounded veterans who have sacrificed so much when serving our country.
