Simple Ways to Help Support Veterans

Simple Ways to Help Support Veterans

Veterans Day is November 11th and just around the corner. This makes for a great time to acknowledge and say thank you to those who have served in our military protecting our nation. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 19 million veterans in the United States. Veterans have left or retired from the military, work hard every day, and many are still in need of your support. The good news for those of you that want to give back is that there are many simple ways to support veterans across the country.

“Our nation’s veterans deserve our gratitude and support every day. I find that especially around Veterans Day, there are people looking for ways to help assist with the needs of our nations’ veterans,” explains Nicole Motsek, the executive director of the EOD Warrior Foundation. “Veterans are always thankful for support from their communities, and appreciate that there are people who want to assist them.”

BiGR Audio Continues the Evolution of Headphones

Take one quick look around any busy bus station, airport, or café and it’s easy to see that headphones have made a big comeback in recent years. The trend has replaced the smaller ear buds, with people opting for the more comfortable headphones, thus making a fashion statement and opting for the highest quality sound. One company, BiGR Audio, is taking the lead in the evolution of the headphone, taking it to a whole new level.

“Headphones offer an incredible way to listen privately, whether you are tuned into your own music, talks, or radio programs,” explains Richard “Big Rich” Bracke, founder of BiGR Audio, a company that makes specialty headphones and a Bluetooth wrist radio. “We asked ourselves what we wanted out of a headphone, and then we went to work making sure that it was accessible to the world.”

Here are a few ways that BiGR Audio is continuing the evolution, and helping to revolutionize, the headphone industry:

Tips for Going Natural & Healthy this Halloween, While Still Keeping it Fun

Tips for Going Natural & Healthy this Halloween, While Still Keeping it Fun

According to the National Retail Federation, roughly $7 billion will be spent on the Halloween season. A good portion of that money will go to candy purchases, which will be given away to the tens of millions of trick-or-treaters who take to the community streets and neighborhood parties. Armed with a bag full of candy, many parents worry about whether or not their child is getting a sugar overload as this yearly holiday makes its way through their home. The good news is that there are ways that people can help make Halloween more natural and healthy.

“Halloween is an exciting time for kids, so the last thing we want to do is take away their fun,” explains Dr. Bruno Sharp, a fourth-generation dentist who created a line of products called Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care, and is celebrating his 10th year as a Natural Oral Care provider. “We can still keep it fun and yet make it healthier. Most kids may not even realize that parents took steps to make it more natural.”
