Christopher Reeve, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Frida Kahlo, Itzhak Perlman, King Philip II and Steven Hawking were all bound to a wheelchair at some point in their lives...
With all of the celebrity deaths last year the hardest for our CEO - Brian Andersen - was the passing of Stephen Hawking.
"Hawking's work in 'A Brief History of Time' was life-changing for me" reflects Andersen. "When you stop to think about the awesome technology incorporated into Mr. Hawking's chair, and how it allowed him to resist his degeneration in his struggle with ALS, how that empowered him to make massive contributions to humanities understanding of theoretical physics... it makes you think... how many other people in this world have something to share with us, but can't, because they're trapped somewhere unable to access the resources they need to be the next amazing contributor to our ongoing development as a species?"
"Our partnership with Free Wheelchair Mission is a direct homage to Mr. Hawking, and all of those who occupy a wheelchair for their mobility, that are giving back to the world and to communities that may not understand them or what they're capable of achieving."
Our goal is to fill a container - 550 wheelchairs - to be distributed to those in need across the globe. Every internet circuit, phone system, cloud infrastructure deployment, marketing automation solution, unified communications platform, local network architecture, video surveillance, emerging technology or any other solution we assist with qualifies for this program.
Telecomprehensive Solutions is donating 1 wheelchair to the Free Wheelchair Mission for every new business line of service we write through December 31st, 2019.
It is our hope that the gift of mobility will find a brilliant mind that has been looking for an opportunity to access the world and could be the next great leader in any field, especially those related to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math)
