About the 2018 Campaign
The TetraNation campaign was designed to recognize local Tetra volunteers for giving of their time and talent to create custom-assistive devices to help people with physical disabilities overcome barriers. The campaign had a ThumbsUP! feature that allowed viewers to vote on their favourite gadgets and videos. By the close of the campaign on April 30, 2018, 27 videos were posted and there were over 7,000 views. Three volunteers and their gadgets stood out among the public:
“Tetra volunteers create custom-assistive devices that are as unique as the people they help,” said Ruby Ng, Executive Director. “The innovations range from gadgets for everyday living to recreational assistance, for children through to seniors, which overcome obstacles and barriers, enhancing independence and quality of life.”
Tetra Society of North America is a non-profit organization that mobilizes a network of over 250 volunteers and growing, with various skills who create solutions for people with physical disabilities.
