Collaborating to offer money saving, fundraising, and positive awareness building programs benefiting the Military and their families.
In an era known for an ever increasing number of active soldiers, veterans and their families suffering and struggling financially and emotionally in the U.S., two companies with a shared goal of assisting the Military through their deeds and values have partnered to give back, and literally create more positive.
SCOUT Military Discounts, a company providing access to military discounts and savings based in Portland, OR, and KonectIDY.com, a cause-related, positive messaging bracelet company with offices in Newbury, MA and Fairport, NY, will collaborate on marketing efforts to benefit the military via discounts, fundraising and positive awareness programs. Both share the belief that there is never enough one person or company can do to support and build morale for the military.
SCOUT is the most comprehensive military savings mobile application for both iOS and Android devices that puts information about hundreds of thousands of military discounts, freebies and more at the fingertips of veterans, active military personnel & their families.
“Our mission is simple,” said Cody McGraw, Founder of SCOUT Military Discounts. “We want to enrich the lives of the military community by being the most comprehensive military discount app. Our goal is to have available every military discount, offer, nonprofit and awareness building platforms to be easily accessible to the military community. It makes sense that this great community is also looking for more positivity in their lives, and working with a partner like KonectIDY that believes in this mission can help achieve our goal.
KonectIDY, conceived in 2013 by business partners Peter Ettenborough and Tony Peluso, offers a way to create more positive messaging in the world and give back in the process. Individuals and charities can custom design their own color-coded bracelets with positive messages on KonectIDY.com, then wear and share them so this positive energy can grow. This is achieved via a patent-pending color-coding system representing each creator’s positive message and story. Each bracelet is unique to the creator and can never be replicated. In addition to spreading positive energy and awareness, these customizable positive messages serve to raise funds for organizations such as military causes, as KonectIDY donates 20% of each sale to the charity or cause connected to the design.
Says Mr. Ettenborough – “We are proud to work with quite a few wonderful military related charities. All have taken the time to create their own unique positive messages to wear and share. And in the process, this positive energy has grown as individuals now come to our site to do the same, and attach their unique designs and messages to those military charities. It’s personal for them – these positive messages are about a brother, a father, a mother, a sister, a friend. This positive energy is certainly transferable and grows, and fortunately gave us the opportunity to meet Cody and start our relationship with SCOUT Military Discounts.”
SCOUT Military Discounts and KonectIDY will be launching reciprocal marketing programs promoting their respective companies, offerings, joint-promotions and most importantly their number one goal of providing every possible opportunity for our military and their families.
