Support Veterans with BAND-AID Brand

Support Veterans with BAND-AID Brand

I participated in an Influencer Activation about how to support Veterans 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.

Veterans day is coming up and I am sure you don’t have to look to far to find someone you know that has helped fight for our country and our freedoms. We live with a Veteran, my husband, so this is a very important cause for us. My husband is a healthy veteran that was fortunate to leave the military and go to graduate school and get a great job. This is not the case with all Veterans of the Military and any bit of help counts.

We only dated a short time while he was in the Navy but each year our elementary school hosts a Veteran Day’s Assembly. It is such a nice way for the kids to learn about members of their community that served or serving and allow them to say thank you.

Right now there are several ways you can help support our Veterans, especially the ones that are home from our recent war on terror and are now injured and experiencing PTSD to name just a few issues. I am so thrilled to see how BAND-AID Brand is working together with some great organizations and products to give a little extra back to these heroes. It is only a small step to helping those folks who put our country first and sacrifice their lives at home to create the freedoms many of us take for granted.

BAND-AID® Brand has partnered with Team Red, White & Blue to help enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activities. Many veterans coming home feel isolated and need the extra support.

Here are a few ways you can support our veterans thanks to the BAND-AID Brand. Support the runners in the Old Glory Coast to Coast Relay by uploading a photo via the application on our Facebook page by sharing a post using #RunWithGlory on Twitter and Instagram. For every approved submission showing support for our vets shared through November 11, 2014, BAND-AID® Brand will donate $1, up to $25,000, to help support Team Red, White & Blue. For information about Team Red, White and Blue, visit teamrwb.org.

BAND-AID® Brand recently launched OUR VETERAN HEROES BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages, featuring patriotic and military-inspired designs. This is a simple step but each dollar counts.

  •  BAND-AID® Brand is donating 5% of the sale price of each box sold to Team Red, White Blue, available at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid  Be sure to look for these boxes and buy a few extra ones to pass out on Veterans Day.
  • BAND-AID® Brand will further support Team Red, White & Blue during the Relay by donating $1.00 for each consumer message encouraging Relay runners and thanking veterans, up to $25, 000. While this is a small amount to support those that sacrifice and come home and need support if we can encourage more brands to give back it will have a huge impact.
