Challenge

At times injured men and women of the armed forces have difficulty transitioning to private life after military due to traumatic brain injuries, post-traumatic stress, and physical wounds received while deployed. The gift of a tablet allows many possibilities for them emotionally, physically and psychologically. They can communicate to family and friends more easily via social media, email, and video chat, thus keeping their spirits high while undergoing treatment and rehabilitation. For those suffering a severe brain injury, the tablet provides the opportunity to play brain games for memory recall. There are many apps now available to assist in such therapy. The calendar app is also essential for TBI sufferers. It allows them a place to keep appointments, and other important dates organized and close at hand. Those who suffer from PTSD find apps for yoga and relaxation therapy very helpful as well. The tablet also allows access to personal VA medical records. Additionally, tablet recipients who are currently attending college can use the tablet for their studies in as well as accessing the therapy apps mentioned earlier.

Each package contains a personally engraved tablet, a protective case to prevent damage from spills and drops, a set of earbuds, and a gift card for purchasing useful apps. The cost of the package is approximately $550.

As our Armed Forces continue to serve and protect our nation here and abroad, we will continue to support those suffering from PTSD and TBI by providing the beneficial tool of a tablet. Your gift of a donation will ensure the program continues to support our wounded service members for years to come.

In recent years, several AMBA shops and suppliers have chosen to hold special events to raise money for iWarriors, some of which include 5k races, golf outings, and a snowmobile ride, all of which make a huge impact in our fundraising efforts. Whether you choose to hold an event, an employee match challenge or a cash donation, we are grateful that you consider the iWarriors Fund for your charitable gift giving.

Online donations can be made here or checks can be made to STAR Charities with the memo, iWarriors, and mailed to:
