OUR VETERAN HEROES BAND-AID Bandages
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.
My father is retired from the Army and I grew up traveling around as part of a military family. We moved to many different places in various parts of the country including Hawaai. My upbringing included a lot of travel for sure. Being a part of the military comes with sacrifices and stressful situations, but builds positive relationships and pride. I am so proud that my father is a veteran and that he served our country for so long. I cannot think of anything more suited for him as a career. He was very good at what he did and was promoted many times. He is also a graduate of the prestigious Army War College.
I have a lot of respect for those who serve our country and in any capacity. I know from my experience with my father that all military members make some pretty big sacrifices. Many of them are in very high pressure situations on a daily basis.
With Veterans Day approaching, I think that it is important that my family show respect and appreciation for those who served our country. We make certain that our children know what Veterans Day is and why we celebrate such an important day. In fact, this article Teaching Your Children About Celebrating Veterans Day is timely and a good read. It can to help to better explain about Veterans Day.
The BAND-AID® Brand is involved with veterans. BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages are a staple in American households and have been involved in the U.S. Armed Forces since WWII when they provided first-aid products – but they understand that the needs of veteran communities go beyond just first aid. 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. BAND-AID® Brand recently launched OUR VETERAN HEROES™ BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages, featuring patriotic and military-inspired designs.
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. BAND-AID® Brand is the presenting sponsor of the Team Red, White & Blue Old Glory Coast to Coast Relay. Now through November 9, runners will carry an American flag 3,800 miles across the country to raise awareness and funds in support of veteran communities in America.
BAND-AID® Brand will donate $1.00 for every positive message of support displayed on social channels using #RunWithGlory, up to $25,000. 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.
I really like to see companies giving back and it is even better when it is something that I already do myself plus a product that I already buy. This is the perfect combination that makes me an even happier customer.
Band-Aid is making it so easy for all of us to give back this Veterans Day.
