Children’s hospitals rely on private donations and federal grants to fund education programs and medical research. Diseases like cystic fibrosis, leukemia, epilepsy, and sickle cell anemia are treated with great care by trained professionals who have access to the latest drugs and technology. Without the support of the community, however, many young people battling illnesses in the United States would not receive the treatment that they deserve. Hospitals and clinics wanting to get their message across to others can do so through the use of custom lapel pins. A powerful way to promote programs, solicit funds, and educate the public about disease, the versatile marketing tool can also help introduce a foundation to the public.
Traditional forms of fundraising are no longer as effective as they used to be. In order for children’s hospitals to remain medically advanced, they must think “outside the box” and find new ways to reach donors. One of the most effective ways of doing this is through the creation and distribution of custom lapel pins from Lapel Pins R Us.
Using the hospital’s logo or motto, our team of designers creates custom artwork in the customer’s choice of colors. Once a digital proof is drafted and the design is approved, custom lapel pins can then be ordered by an individual or group and handed out to community members, families of ill children, staff, and donors as a way of spreading goodwill and getting the word out about the hospital or clinic’s efforts.
A few of the ways that custom lapel pins can be used by medical facilities are:
As an educational tool to increase awareness about childhood illness and disease.
As a promotional tool to establish a hospital’s presence in a city or state.
As an advertising tool to help announce upcoming events or new medical programs.
As a thank you gift for donors, dedicated employees, and volunteers.
Due to their many uses, custom lapel pins are indisputably valuable in children’s hospitals, clinics, and research centers. In addition to their physical presence, the emotional impact that they make is astounding. Conjuring up memories of teamwork, dedication, and innovation, custom lapel pins from Lapel Pins R Us help raise awareness and make progress.
