A Best Small Town in America

Give back to your Alabama community through volunteer opportunities with The TGB Foundation, an impact-driven nonprofit providing the opportunity for kids to live their best life possible.

The Together Giving Back [TGB] Foundation was created in honor of Optomi, llc Cofounder, Todd G. Black. Todd championed strong values, generosity, warm-hearted corporate culture and he relished any opportunity to make a positive impact in people’s lives.

The city of Brewton warmed our hearts when we first visited years ago.  This rural town was awarded one of the Best Small Towns in America and we couldn’t agree more. Todd and our entire Optomi Professional Services leadership team spent time volunteering to help get a local “pay what you can” restaurant get up and running.  We’ve also backed backpack meals for local school programs, hosted coding camps and more.  There is no shortage of ways to volunteer in Brewton to help children.

With the launch of The TGB Foundation, we aim to help the community through local volunteering opportunities to enhance the lives of children. This can involve assistance with the packing of our TGBash Bags… bags full of entertaining items for little patients going through treatments in the hospital. We’re looking to give out over 2000 bags before the end of 2021.

In partnering with Children’s Hospitals, we are able to help kids of all ages have a more comfortable hospital experience. Psychology studies have shown that simple games can improve mood, promote relaxation and ward off anxiety (Russoniello et al.). Our TGBag does just that. Through the gift of entertainment and distraction activities, we are able to normalize life and enhance the hospital stay for young patients and their families. These bags include items such as puzzles, fidget spinners, stress balls, coloring books and activity books. Our gifts allow the opportunity for better outcomes by transcending the reality of the moment… all in an effort to allow these little patients to ultimately live their best lives.


Here at The TGB Foundation, we believe in the power of a positive mental state
to promote health and healing… so we aim to make every child smile,
feel cared for and find relief from their worries for a little while.
“A cheerful heart is good medicine.”

The TGBash Bags are an entertainment bag full of coloring books, slime, joke cards, a fidget spinner, a stuffed animal, crayons, etc. – items that will help children better cope with their circumstances in the hospital. If you are able to contribute, please go onto to donate. Thank you for helping us make a little patient’s day!
