LATEST HAPS NEWS

popsocketsPopsocket has chosen HAPS to be a part of their Poptivism campaign. You can support HAPS by selecting an existing design that benefits HAPS or by creating your own design and choosing HAPS as your designated charity. Popsocket will donate $8 for every Popsocket purchased with HAPS as the selected charity. 
 
If you aren’t familiar with Popsocket, they are plastic circles that attach themselves to flat phones (or cases) with a sticky, reusable adhesive. They “pop” out twice and look like a small accordion. Popsockets are used like handles or knobs for phones and if you have a tendency to drop your phone a lot, or have smaller hands and find it hard to hold the phone comfortably, a Popsocket fixes that. 
 
 
Tap into your creative side and design your own Popsocket to share with others. HAPS Board member, Erick Sandlin created the first two designs and new options are available once submitted. As long as you purchase one of the options from the Houston Area Parkinson Society page, HAPS receives the donation. 
 

To buy one of the Popsockets designed to benefit HAPS, visit the Poptivism page.

If you would like to create a custom Popsocket, but still have a donation go to HAPS, visit this link: https://www.popsockets.com/pages/poptivism-customizer
After you create an account and select Houston Area Parkinson Society as your cause, you can go through the steps to create your own design.

MISSION & PURPOSE

We exist to ensure that no one faces a Parkinson’s diagnosis alone.
