Pebble Gear, a ground-breaking international children’s technology company, announced the release of a special edition Disney-licensed Mickey & Friends Forever & Always tablet carry bag. The bag is being launched to support the charity, Hope and Homes for Children, and their urgent appeal to support children in Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania.


Pebble Gear will donate 50% of sales profits from the new Disney Forever & Always carry bag to the organization which supports the protection of children and families impacted by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Pebble Gear was launched at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic with the mission of helping kids safely take their first steps into technology, creating an innovative line of tablets and accessories specifically designed to allow children to access digital content safely and securely. Their tablets provide access to kid-friendly gaming and educational content, free of in-app purchases, unwanted pop-ups, or hidden fees, with extensive and user-friendly parental controls.


“Pebble Gear was founded on the value of ensuring the safety and security of children everywhere. Witnessing the horrific impact, the war in Ukraine has had on children and families, we knew that we had to do something to help,” said Neil Meredith, Head of Pebble Gear of the snakebyte | GROUP (Pebble Gear’s parent company). “We are proud to support the humanitarian work of Hope and Homes for Children, providing aid and resources to counteract the devastation the war has inflicted upon the children and families of Ukraine.”


Hope and Homes for Children is an international charity organization with a mission of the global elimination of institutionalization of children, developing alternatives to orphanages, closing orphanages, and preventing the breakdown of families.


Hope and Homes for Children’s Hilary Thomas said: “We are so grateful for the outpouring of support which has enabled us to provide aid for vulnerable families over the last few months. Hope and Homes for Children has worked in Ukraine for nearly 25 years, offering practical solutions to keep families together and working with the Government to move children out of orphanages and into loving families.


“Tragically, thousands of children and families have been torn apart since the war started, and so our work in Ukraine has never been more important. Thanks to organizations like the snakebyte | GROUP, we can continue supporting vulnerable families and protecting children across Ukraine, as well as in neighboring countries such as Moldova and Romania, where thousands of families have fled.”


The limited-edition Mickey & Friends Always & Forever carry bags will be available this fall from all Pebble Gear retailers, both in-store and online for $29.99 USD (MSRP). The safe, soft, and stylish bags are made from easy-to-clean neoprene and help protect tech from bumps, scratches, and tablet tumbles.
