JASMAINE’S SUCCESS STORY

Jasmaine was part of our original test group. She used Obi for a couple of weeks and gave us feedback that helped make the robot even better. She loved Obi so much she wanted one of her own.

Jasmaine’s family set up a GoFundMe page to help offset the cost of her purchase. Within 12 days, she had reached her goal! Her page is a great example of how photos, video and a well-written story can inspire others to make donations.
