Disclosure – 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 family moved around a lot with the military when I was a little kid. While it was difficult to always be the new kid in school, it actually taught me how to be more outgoing, how to make friends and how to be a better friend. My dad is now retired Air Force, three of my siblings and several nephews have all served in the military and I work for the Navy in the eLearning division. While being a military family comes with some sacrifices and stressful situations, it also builds self esteem, pride and positive relationships. As a staunch supporter of all those who serve or have served in the military, I’m proud to know that 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 need assistance getting back to “life as usual” after they’ve served or been injured overseas and I think it’s awesome that BAND-AID® Brand is doing what they can to help out.
My kids absolutely love these OUR VETERAN HEROES™ BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages that feature patriotic and military-inspired designs. I knew the boys would really enjoy the camouflage design but the girls have been wanting to use them too and I’m very happy about that since I know that BAND-AID® Brand is donating 5% of the sale price of each box sold to Team Red, White & Blue. The new designs are available at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid and I’m going to have to stock up these to make sure I don’t run out!
Additionally, BAND-AID® Brand is the presenting sponsor of the Team Red, White & Blue Old Glory Coast to Coast Relay. Now through November 9th, runners are carrying 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 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.
