iPads For Soldiers

“SUPPORT OUR TROOPS” IS NO LONGER A SLOGAN. IT’S AN ACTION!

The iPads for Soldiers Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to provide our active duty and severely wounded soldiers with iPad2’s. For the active duty troops overseas, they are life changers. Their small size and weight allow them to fit into their packs and be carried on mission. As well as the FaceTime feature allows for communication and more visual contact with their loved ones.

For severely wounded soldiers, it allows for communication with loved ones during their lengthy recoveries in military hospitals, utilize applications helpful for PTSD, and the “swipe” technology make easy for soldiers who have lost their hands/fingers and can’t use traditional keyboards.

To give back, donations can be made online at www.ipadsforsoldiers.org. Or checks payable to “iPads for Soldiers Foundation” can be mailed to 259 Buttonwood Drive, Key Biscayne, FL 33149.

    I have three battlebuddies that need ipads. We are currently serving in Kabul, Afghanistan. They had a hard time communicating with their families due to lack of computers. Especially on Christmas, if you could help us that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You,

    Hi Joel,

    We love to see others reaching out to help other service members, especially during the holiday season. We know how hard deployment and communicating with family members can be and see the benefits that electronics such as iPads can serve for our soldiers. If you want to look more into getting iPads for your battlebuddies, make sure to contact iPads for Soldiers directly and see what they can do! You can reach them at: http://www.ipadsforsoldiers.org/contact/

    Happy Holidays!
