  • RepairLabs, Helping One Kid At A Time With Canines For Disabled Kids

    RepairLabs’ Mission

    Over the course of the past year, RepairLabs, the nation's most trusted repair service has partnered with some of the finest charitable organizations around to help cloth children in China, combat diabetes, support animals in need, and help fight drug addiction. Now it’s time for RepairLabs to step in once again with our Op:HERO program to help with another major issue in our beautiful country, and that’s children with special needs who do not or cannot receive the proper help they need to lead the fullest life possible, Canines for Disabled Kids has been helping with this very issue for years, and is committed for the long haul, so we thought it was time that we got involved.

    Though Canines for Disabled Kids is mostly known for the public awareness and education they spread across the nation by talking to civic/religious groups, and students of all ages, they also help promote the care of these children even further by offering Scholarships to help offset the cost of getting a service animal for your child in need. You don’t consider your child a burden, so why should an animal to better their life become one.

    Getting a service dog for your child is a huge responsibility for not only the little one, but for you as a parent as well. Make sure you study the materials available on their website as much as possible before making the decision. Service dogs are there to make life a little bit easier, but still require the same amount of care that any other animal would need, as the old saying goes, everyone poops.

    With years of experience in helping parents find the right animal to fit their child’s special needs, Canines for Disabled Kids will help you every step of the way, from picking the correct dog that has been specially trained, to the financial situation, all the way to getting your child the animal they deserve.

    RepairLabs’ Op:HERO & Canines for Disabled Kids, A Beautiful Partnership

    Our Op:HERO (Help Every Repair Overcome) program was started with these exact same ideals in mind that Canines for Disabled Kids was founded on. Helping those who need it has always been our biggest concern, and by donating to Canines for Disabled Kids, we all make sure these children get paired with the right animal to help them, and that’s what it’s all about.

    RepairLabs & Canines for Disabled Kids, A Great Pairing

    Each dollar you donate to Canines for Disabled Kids we’ll match, up to $100 per order, and if you’re the parent of a child you feel may be in need of one of these specially-trained animals, please head over to the Canines for Disabled Kids website to learn more.

    The opportunity to help these children really gets us here at RepairLabs excited, if there is one thing we love to do, its help in any way we can, but if you’d like to make a donation without purchasing one of our fine services, you may do so here.

    With hundreds of successful pairings under their belt, rest assured knowing that your donation will go toward a child in need either way, that's the RepairLabs' way.

  • RepairLabs Matches with Double Donation to Provide Coats for China’s Orphans

    RepairLabs' Op:HERO Has Teamed Up With Love Without Boundaries

    Op:HERO has decided to tackle a special mission. At RepairLabs we’re teaming with our customers to provide warm coats to orphans in China through the Love Without Boundaries charitable organization. We are honored to have the opportunity to help children in need through a special use of our Op:HERO program. In the past we’ve developed relationships with other amazing charitable organizations to collect donations for them from our customers. And in the past we’ve always matched 100% of customer donations (from $1 to $100), so their gift was worth double.

    Matching 200% To Make A Difference Is The RepairLabs Way

    This time RepairLabs is going to match 200% of every donation.  We have the opportunity to donate a coat with every customer contribution and we’re going to stretch every dollar. Love Without Boundaries can purchase a coat for an orphan in China for only $15. We’re asking customers who’d like to participate in this program to donate just $5, and we’ll match it with the last $10. We’re asking for a little bit more from our customers, and we intend to give a lot more ourselves.

    So why do we here at RepairLabs feel so passionate about this particular charity? Love Without Boundaries has been helping the neediest children in the orphanages of rural China since 2003. And since that time, the demographic face of kids in need there has changed. Instead of orphanages mainly filled with healthy baby girls, the population of orphanages has shifted to children with severe health problems or birth defects.  Most of these kids have been abandoned because their parents can’t afford to treat them or because of the stigma associated with birth defects in China, which have been on the rise with pollution.

    Rural orphanages in China suffer great deprivation.  Often the children go hungry and caregivers are stretched to the limit to provide them with attention. There is no central heating in most facilities, and children from orphanages aren’t allowed to attend school with other children. Love Without Boundaries works to supplement education, nutrition, and warm clothing for these kids. They provide roads to foster homes for the neediest children, and finance many surgeries that will ultimately make these children adoptable domestically and abroad.  They wholeheartedly believe that it’s best. Their mission is to provide hope and healing to transform the lives of orphaned and impoverished children.

    So where does Operation HERO (Help Each Repair Overcome) fit into this picture? We wanted to help, and when we contacted Love Without Boundaries, they shared with us a need for coats for the kids.  Without central heat the children are often bundled into many layers that rarely come off, and in the frigid temperatures that can come about there, there’s a desperate need for warm clothing. We thought we could make a real difference in a little person’s life with this simple donation.  We here at RepairLabs are honored to do our small part to make a big difference in a little person’s life. And we’re extra proud that we can empower our customers to make that difference as well.

    Operation HERO was started to provide an easy and inexpensive donation opportunity for our customers. Anyone making a purchase from us can choose to add a donation to one of our charities to their checkout cart, and we’ll match that donation 100%--or more! In developing relationships with multiple charities, we wanted to provide our customers with multiple options for charitable giving, and give them the chance to find a cause that resonated for them. Currently we work with an animal shelter charity, an anti-drug organization, and a diabetes cure organization, as well as Love Without  Boundaries, and we would like to continue adding more great charities those we support.  Most importantly, we think there’s a little hero in each of us, and we’d like to help our customers find that hero too.

    If you feel as passionate as we do here at RepairLabs about clothing these children in need, and would like to donate directly, please visit their donation page here.
