KENT, Ohio (Feb. 13, 2015): Kent Displays, which produces the Boogie Board, recently donated over $130,000 of eWriters to children’s charity Kids Wish Network to help kids facing life-altering circumstances. The donation will be distributed through the charity’s Holiday of Hope gift-giving programs which reach children suffering from homelessness, neglect, abuse, or illness.
“We chose to donate to Kids Wish Network because it encompasses the true spirit of making dreams come true, and that’s the type of organization we choose to align our brand with,” said Kent Displays Marketing Coordinator Ryan Merlene.
Kids Wish Network is a nationwide charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations.
This donation marks the second for the Kent, OH, company. Kent Displays has been a Kids Wish Network Guardian Angel donor since 2014, totaling over $179,000 of eWriters. With the help of the generous Guardian Angel family, hundreds of thousands of children facing upsetting and often traumatic circumstances are given new gifts and other necessities to help ease difficult situations.
“We know that our products are going to end up in good hands and truly make a difference when we donate to Kids Wish Network,” adds Merlene.
Founded in 1993, Kent Displays is a world leader in research, development and manufacture of LCDs for unique, sustainable applications. Improv Electronics, the consumer products unit of Kent Displays, launched the Boogie Board eWriter in January 2010. Boogie Board Paperless LCD eWriters are an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective paper replacement. With a goal to reduce global consumption and demand for paper, one Boogie Board can save 50 reams of paper.
“For the kids that benefit from our programs, receiving a new gift lifts their spirits and gives them the hope they so desperately need,” says Kids Wish Network Executive Director Anna Lanzatella. “We’re grateful to have generous Guardian Angel donors like Kent Displays to help us provide joy to children facing difficult circumstances.”
Kids Wish Network would like to thank Kent Displays for its recent donation and continued support of its programs. For more information about Kent Displays and the Boogie Board, please visit www.myboogieboard.com.
