Hearts of Patriots Remembers Our Veteran Spouses/Caregivers During The Holiday Season

The Holidays Can Be a Stressful Time For Spouses and Families of Veterans Suffering From Invisible wounds of War

Few individuals experience PTSD in isolation.
The holidays can be particularly stressful for these families and it's important that the spouses of those who served are also not forgotten.”

— Hearts of Patriots Co-founder, Megan Cain

ELYRIA, OHIO, US, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hearts of Patriots (HP), a nonprofit dedicated to standing by our hidden heroes who sacrifice daily in support of their wounded Veteran ensures that these amazing individuals are not overlooked during this holiday season.

"Few individuals experience PTSD in isolation." said Hearts of Patriots Executive Director Denise Weller. "The holidays can be particularly stressful for these families and it's important that the spouses of those who served are also not forgotten."

Hearts of Patriots' Adopt a Vet Spouse/Caregiver for the Holidays program matches individual, business and organization sponsors with caregivers of Veterans suffering from PTSD and/or TBI. HP pairs the vetted caregiver directly with the sponsor who agrees to purchase a gift for the caregiver based on a holiday wish list send and provide gift card to help with the holiday meal.

Read from two Veteran Caregiver’s emails upon learning they were chosen last season for the Adopt a Vet Spouse for the Holidays program.

A Veteran Spouse from Florida wrote, “Thank you so much! For the first time in a long time I am excited about Christmas. I don’t think I could thank you enough!”

A Ohio Caregiver emailed the following after learning she was paired with a sponsor, “If you only knew the day I had today, and to come home from work tonight and open this email, I am literally brought to tears. It does my heart so well to know that there are still selfless people in this world who genuinely care about others. This is such an incredible program, and I hope next year I can be on the giving end rather than receiving.”

While other families are out looking for that perfect gift for their wife or husband, our PTSD Veterans frequently feel overwhelmed and trapped, remaining in the safety of their homes. Unfortunately, on Christmas morning or during Hanukkah, it is the Caregiver who often doesn't receive a gift."

Please thank these caregivers for their service and sacrifice by becoming a Holiday sponsor for one of our Hidden Heroes. Sponsorship applications are available on line now. For more information on how to become a sponsor please visit https://www.vetspouse.org/adopt-military-caregiver.html or email denise@vetspouse.org.

Hearts of Patriots is committed to ensuring that spouses of Veterans who suffer from invisible wounds (PTSD and TBI-Traumatic Brain injury) are not alone throughout their difficult journey as caregivers and provides education, resources and support that focuses on the spouse and their families.

eBay Partners with Red Pocket Mobile to Pair a Low-Cost Wireless Plan with Every Phone Sold

E-commerce leader adds option for wireless service on every phone for as little as $5 per month

Because Red Pocket works on all of America’s major networks, their service can apply to virtually all of the millions of phones sold on eBay.”

— David Grim, eBay

THOUSAND OAKS, CA, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s an open secret among bargain-hunters that eBay is the best place to buy a cell phone. As one of the largest marketplaces in the world, a mobile phone is sold every five seconds on eBay in the US alone.

Now, for the first time, anyone who buys a cell phone on eBay has the option of adding a low-cost wireless plan for as little as $5 per month.

eBay’s wireless partner, Red Pocket Mobile, is the only wireless brand that offers service on all of the major US cell networks – and it does so at a fraction of the regular cost.

“Red Pocket Mobile is the natural partner for us to launch our add-on wireless plan,” said David Grim, Category Manager at eBay. “Because Red Pocket works on all of America’s major networks, their service can apply to virtually all of the millions of phones sold on eBay.”

Consider this – the average American spends $80 monthly on their cell phone bill.

Red Pocket’s most popular plan, by contrast, is just $30 per month. That plan provides 5GB of LTE data plus unlimited data at slower speeds, along with unlimited talk, text, and international calling to over 70 countries.

That’s plenty of data for most. The average mobile user in America consumes 2.7GB of cellular data every month, according to Forbes.

For the occasional user, Red Pocket’s Basic Plan on eBay provides 100 minutes, 100 texts and 500MB of LTE data on any major network for just $5 per month.

Red Pocket has already sold thousands of its Bring Your Own Phone starter kits on eBay, where customers rate Red Pocket’s service 4.9 out of 5 stars. Red Pocket's sky-high customer rating is an extraordinary achievement in an industry that leaves most consumers frustrated with their provider.

“eBay’s introduction of a wireless plan add-on can change how Americans get their cell phone service,” said Joshua Gordon, President & CEO of Red Pocket Mobile. “More and more people are realizing that the best way to save money on wireless is to buy not just your phone on eBay, but your service plan too.”

Melissa Porterfield of Silk Mountain to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to recent research, up to 70% of employees in the average workplace are disengaged, and of those 70%, 51% are looking for a new job on the company dime, which leaves the remaining 30% carrying the entire load-not a winning scenario for any company.

With almost 20 years of corporate human resource experience, Melissa Porterfield knows firsthand how critical an organization’s people are to its success.

“If your voluntary turnover is increasing–your good people are leaving–and your employee engagement is decreasing, there is a good chance that your profitability isn’t where you want it to be,” says Porterfield. “Those two metrics alone, can point to a compony culture issue.”

Porterfield is the founder of Silk Mountain, a boutique consultancy firm dedicated to helping startups and mid-sized companies clarify their vision, mission and values to build healthy and sustainable organizational cultures.

“My vision is to put culture at the forefront of growing businesses,” says Porterfield. “And my mission is to help those organizations develop healthy cultures that drive their success in the marketplace though attracting and retaining top talent, increasing employee engagement and reducing customer churn.

When working with a startup to design a culture, Porterfield works directly with the CEO and often the conversation starts when the company is ready to hire their first employee.

“When you start hiring, you need to be looking through the lens of your culture to make sure you’re hiring someone who is the right fit,” says Porterfield. “If you haven’t put thought into what you want your company to look like from a culture standpoint, it’s very challenging to make those first critical hires & at the end of the day, great hiring is about alignment with your vision, mission and values. Too often companies hire out of desperation. They need somebody to help with the workload, pronto, and all too often, those first key hires can be disastrous.”

When working on transforming an existing culture, it becomes a different and often more challenging conversation, as you are likely to be dealing with an established leadership team that may not be in alignment with each other.

“When you’re designing your culture, you don’t have to necessarily start with your vision or mission or values,” says Porterfield. “You can start anywhere to get the thought process going. If you haven’t had an opportunity to think about it, we need to make time together to think about it. Let’s talk about what you value, what’s most important, what you want to see in your employees and in yourself. Let’s talk about the purpose of your company.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Melissa Porterfield in an interview with Jim Masters on September 26th at 3pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics®, a revolutionary company transforming the Orthopedic Implant Industry US Patent No. 10,058,362 Orthopedic Bone Fixation Assembly

DALLAS, TX, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics (GEO®) receives US Patent No. 10,058,362 which covers a novel approach for Variable Angle Locking Technology. It provides various methods for taking advantage of the strength of machined threads in both the plate and screw by using inserts in the plate that allow the screw to be fixed at various angles and orientations. In the main embodiment, an insert can be attached to the end of a drill guide which also serves to orient and attach the insert to the plate. Once in place, the drill hole is made in perfect alignment with the screw hole in the insert. The insert contains machined threads just as a standard plate hole would, allowing a standard locking screw to be inserted at the desired orientation. The screw can also be easily removed, the insert re-oriented, and the screw replaced as desired.

“The granting of this US patent further enhances GEO’s ability to bring solutions to surgeon needs in the orthopedic marketplace”, says Michael P. Simpson, CEO and President of GEO®. “This technology will compliment future development projects while adding additional technology to the GEO CART®”

GEO® will be exhibiting at the Becker’s ASC Conference, Chicago, October 18th– October 19th, 2018. Please come see the GEO CART® and other GEO® offerings at Booth #15T.
