I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for BAND-AID® Brand. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
BAND-AID Brand has partnered with Team Red, White and Blue to enrich the lives of veterans by connecting them to their communities with physical and social activities.
Both of my grandfathers fought in WWII and my husband grandfather was a prisoner of war for 2 whole years in the same war. Veterans will always hold a place near to my heart for all they have accomplished and given up just to make sure we live a free life. My husband also has a cousin who served over 8 tours overseas and I have family as well who went overseas mulple times. Now having a family of my own, I am so grateful for these men and women who give up so much.
This is a picture of my grandfather. He was a pilot is WWII and it brings tears to my eyes just looking at it. He passed away 9 years ago and what I wouldn’t give for him to see my work with helping his fellow conrads. He always was telling us to vote and we got in trouble if we didn’t, not because he was political, but he knew how big of a gift it was for us since he personally fought to give us that right. I personally vote every election, just to make him proud and show I appreciate what him and every other solider has done for me! Let’s just say she is happy to obliged!
BAND-AID recently launched their OUR VETERAN HEROES™ BAND-AID Brand Adhesive Bandages in patriotic and military inspired designs. In turn BAND-AID Adhesive Bandages will donate 5% of the sale price of each box sold and they can be found at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid.
This morning my daughter woke up and starting getting into everything as usual which included the OUR VETERAN HEROES™ Band-Aid Brand Adhesive Bandages. My first instinct was to tell her to not waste them and only open 1 but then I realized, I wanted her to use all of them! I want to buy more and more boxes of these special BAND-AID’s. So her and I put one on every single one of our fingers this morning, and she exclaimed “they are all gone!”. So that means we have to go track down more packs. She might not understand what our military does for us but I plan on letting her know and telling her she is helping them just by using all of our BAND-AID ‘s.
Now through November 9th, runners will carry an American Flag 3,800 miles across the country to raise awareness and money in support of veteran communities across America.
BAND-AID further help this cause by donation $1 for each consumer message encouraging relay runners and thanking veterans up to $25,000.
Veterans day is coming up! How do you plan to show your support. I work with a wonderful charity called Colorado Supporting Our Troops. They make gift boxes and send them overseas to the men and women fighting for our country. Anytime I have a surplus in stockpile, I try and give them what I have because they said we don’t even understand what it feels like to get even little things that remind them of home!
Make sure you thank a Veteran or better yet, find a way to give back.
