The team at Wrap Buddies also finds joy in bringing smiles to the parents and families of the children with the helmets. The combination inspires each company that gets involved. It was clear that once again, the Sign Biz Members would vote for a campaign that gives so much back,” says Young. “I am very proud to be associated with such a giving group of entrepreneurs.”

Stephens adds, “We post every child on our webpage as well as Facebook and have gained followers for Wrap Buddies along the way. A local news station asked for local story ideas on their Facebook page and that’s where Karin’s cousin mentioned us and Wrap Buddies. The story was noticed and covered by another news station.” (see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GTCZwPi4Qg)
