Operation of Hope provides free, life-changing surgery and health care for children in desperate need and creates a self-sustaining program of hope through education. They are building a growing network of medical professionals that serve patients in desperate needs, so that every child has the hope of a normal life.

Operation of Hope has been a functioning organization since 1989 and performs free surgeries for children all over the world. They are currently celebrating one of their recent surgeries that was performed for Blessing Makwera.

When Blessing was 14 years old, he found a landmine detonator in a field where he lived in Zimbabwe, Africa. Blessing thought the metal object was a small electric motor. He inserted the detonator between his teeth to free his hands so he could work. In 2009, two years after the accident, the Operation of Hope Team was donating a facial reconstructive surgical mission in Zimbabwe to help those afflicted with birth defects such as cleft-lips and palates. After hearing about Operation of Hope on Zimbabwe’s only radio station, Blessing took a 6-hour bus ride by himself into the capital city of Harare so he could meet this team of volunteer surgeons.

These are especially helpful as we usually use paper name tags and they do not last as long nor do they look as wonderful and as professional as these do!” exclaimed Jennifer Trubenbach, CEO & Mission Director at Operation of Hope.

We are grateful for organizations such as Operation of Hope. And these donations are truly something that helps us stand out from our competition.

Founded in 1976, Women Against Abuse, Inc. is the leading domestic violence service provider in Philadelphia. Women Against Abuse serves over 15,000 people each year through emergency safe haven, transitional housing, community-based supportive services, behavioral health therapy, legal services, hot line counseling, and community education, advocacy and technical assistance. Its mission is to provide quality, compassionate and nonjudgmental services in a manner that fosters self-respect and independence in persons experiencing intimate partner violence and to lead the struggle to end domestic violence through advocacy and community education.

iPledge is Women Against Abuse’s social awareness campaign, founded in 2008 to raise awareness to domestic violence, a public health epidemic that impacts 1 in 3 women. It is the premier Philadelphia campaign that engages the community in taking a stand against domestic violence.

“The donation Women Against Abuse received makes it possible for us to have enough name tags for guests at the 2016 Dish It Up on April 7th, Women Against Abuse’s annual fund raising event and Philadelphia’s only female chef competition!” exclaimed Christine Nieves, Director of Funds Development for Women Against Abuse.

Nieves goes on to explain, “This year also marks Women Against Abuse’s 40th anniversary. (We have been involved for) 40 years of progress in the struggle to end domestic violence and providing lifesaving services for women, children and men affected by this public health (partner violence) epidemic.”mighty badge medium plus women against abuse customer donations

Women Against Abuse received 180 Medium Plus Mighty Badges. Mighty Badges are a great way to use a reusable name tag. The metal plates can be ordered plain or with a printed logo and names are quick and easy to add with the printable inserts. The Mighty Badge system is easy to use, as the three parts simply snap together to give you a professional looking, yet reusable, name badge.

“Throughout the years, we found that these name tags truly are the best in terms of quality. We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in the the donation program with Coller Industries,” says Nieves.
