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.

As an American citizen, I enjoy my rights and freedoms that others have fought so hard to protect. I am truly thankful for all of the men and women who have served our country in the past and continue to protect my family and yours. With Veteran’s Day coming up it is a time to really appreciate what we have been given in this great country we live in. It’s easy for some of us with family members that are veterans because we are often reminded of the sacrifices they had made to serve our country.All of my uncles have served in the military, two in the Marines and one in the Navy. My grandfather served in the Air Force and so did his father, so when we all get together there is no shortage of stories that remind me of my gratitude for all of our veterans.

That’s why I am so excited 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.

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 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.

Consumers can visit www.bandaid.com/heroes to share these messages or use #RunWithGlory on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This is a simple way to help out, just send a quick Thank you to all of the veterans using #RunWithGlory. It will only take a minute and will help out the veterans that have sacrificed so much to help make our lives great!

It’s nice to show our support for veterans on this one day a year but there are another 364 days that we usually don’t have them on our minds. You don’t always have to know someone who has served our country in order show your appreciation. My entire neighborhood has a program where for just $20 a year we all purchase a flag that gets placed in front of our homes for the weekend of patriotic holidays. It is placed, removed, and stored by the city. This is a great way to show your support and if this isn’t available in your neighborhood, get in contact with your city and get it started!
