If you think it’s important to help soldiers wounded on the battlegrounds in Iraq and Afganistan, then check out Iwarriors.org. IWarriors.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting wounded American troops by providing them with iPads and accessories to help them keep in touch with family members and friends while undergoing treatment for their wounds.
So far, iWarriors.org has raised more than $90,000 to support more than 130 soldiers, many of whom are single, double, and triple amputees. In some cases, these warriors have to stay away from home for two years or more while they undergo surgeries, are fitted for prosthetics and rehabilitate. IWarriors.org is the brainchild of Tim and Kim Batz of moldmaker Mold Craft Inc., Bear Lake, Minn., and has been supported by numerous others in the plastics and moldmaking industries, including the American Mold Builders Association and MoldMaking Technology Magazine, a sister publication to Plastics Technology.
