About the 2019 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.

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. There are 33 Tetra chapters across Canada and each year Tetra receives more than 400 project requests. Support Tetra and its work by donating online at www.tetrasociety.org.
