Local Hawaii Artist Donates a Portion of Proceeds of iPhone Covers to HUGS

HONOLULU – Heather Brown, a local Hawaii artist, has added local non-profit HUGS (Help, Understanding and Group Support) to her list of non-profits she supports through her iPhone cover sales. Earlier this month Brown launched two new iPhone cases featuring her signature artwork in which she will donate 15 percent of the proceeds to HUGS.  HUGS provides support for the entire family, whose child has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

 

 “I chose HUGS because I believe in their mission statement, have had the pleasure of meeting some of the people that work with HUGS and I love to support great causes at home in Hawai'i,” Brown said about choosing HUGS as one of her non-profit beneficiaries.

Flu season is just around the corner and ALTRES Medical, Hawaii’s leader in supplemental nursing services, is seeking more than 300 registered nurses (RNs), nursing assistants (NAs) and medical assistants (MAs) to administer flu shots to Hawaii students and assist at school flu clinics statewide.

“The ‘Stop Flu at School’ clinics are a wonderful opportunity for nurses of all levels of experience to serve their local communities,” said Jenies Thomas, manager of ALTRES Medical. “Nurses can choose to stay in the neighborhoods they live in, work nearby, or they can request to be assigned to communities with the greatest need.”
