Please see our latest article below about filing your own provisional patent application. But we also wanted to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from QuickPatents!
As you may know, in lieu of spending money on cards and postage we always make a year-end donation to a charity that has particular importance to us. This year we’re again making that donation to Free Wheelchair Mission, which is very close to sending its 1,000,000th wheel-chair out to the poorest of the poor in the world that have limited or no mobility. It’s a great example of using your engineering acumen to help people in need. Check out the motivating story behind this organization!
We also want to call your attention to our client, Jen Spry, who is working tirelessly against human trafficking. I am particularly fond of people who fight this fight, as a father of six daughters (and three sons) myself. While Jen’s organization is not yet registered as a 501(c)3 organization, please consider helping if you don’t need to have your gift be tax deductible. Alternately, if you need to be able to deduct your gift from your taxes this year but still feel strongly about fighting human trafficking, please consider Operation Underground Railroad, an organization comprising former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world.
Again, Merry Christmas! We hope you have a great holiday season and an inventive new year!
