Really Tall Man? Try TallOrder.com (And Enter to WIN! )

 

Got a really tall guy on your shopping list? TallOrder.com isan online fashion brand that caters to the big and tall market, provides socks for men with big feet, shoe sizes 12-20. It’s a category that has been severely underserviced – until now. Family, friends and significant others with tall men in their lives can gift them with an accessory that helps them express their personal style.

 These socks are soft and comfortable to wear, as well. Long enough to cover as much as you would want to, and fun themes and patterns to choose from. A portion of your purchases will also go to “Tuesday’s Children”, a nonprofit organization that helps children after traumatic events.

A little bit about the founders;

“Standing at 6’11” and 6’9”, twin entrepreneurs from Long Island, Mike and Dan Friedman, have been reaching new heights all their lives. Growing up, the brothers stood out for their size and were commonly referred to as the “Twin Towers.” Sadly, this nickname would take on a much different meaning when they were 11 years old and lost their father, Andrew Friedman, in the World Trade Center attacks.

The Friedmans were overwhelmed by the unwavering support and kindness they received from their community and several amazing charities, including “Tuesday’s Children,” an organization that played a vital role in their lives after 9/11 and supports youth, families, and communities impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss. While caring for the families of nearly 3,000 victims of 9/11 was truly a “Tall Order,” people went out of their way to show The Friedmans their love and generosity.

In this spirit and by recognizing a niche in the men’s market, Mike and Dan created TallOrder.com to offer their fellow “Tall-Stars” stylish socks for large-sized feet, while also giving back to “Tuesday’s Children,” an organization that has deeply impacted their lives. Ten percent of TallOrder.com’s profits will be donated to “Tuesday’s Children.”

You can view the entire collection here.

Customers who purchase Tall Order socks are also giving back – proceeds from TallOrder.com are donated to Tuesday’s Children, a nonprofit that offered support to co-founders Mike and Dan Friedman after losing their father on 9/11.

#sponsored Cold and Flu Season Giveaway #ColdFluPrep #SickJustGotReal

Tis the season, and I sadly don’t mean the Holiday season. It is the beginning of Cold and Flu Season and the perfect time to start preparing for what may come. Your first line of defense is prevention. Sometimes also the best answers are the simplest when it comes to this topic. SOAP!

My #1 trick is wash your hands. I know, we have all heard this before, but there is a reason for it being repeated so often. It’s true! The minute you come in the door, wash your hands. Kids playing with their toys? Wash their hands. Handling books from the library? Wash your hands. Before every meal and after every playdate. Get into the habit of good hygiene and hand washing.

This goes hand in hand with #2, Don’t touch your face. All those germs you come in contact with, that you haven’t had a chance to wash off yet, let them stay on your hands. Don’t bring them up to your eyes, nose, and mouth. Start to pay attention to how often your hands make contact with your face and think a little about what you have come in contact with recently. Would you ever touch your face to a bathroom door handle?

Now no matter how careful you are there are still going to be times those sneaky little germs get past your guard. This is what you need to prepare for. You don’t want to be running to the store at 1am for Children’s Advil when you can have it already stocked. Or run out of kid’s Robitussin just when your little one needs it. On a cold night there is nothing worse than a long drive to find a 24 Hour store.

So #3, Be prepared to nip these illnesses in the bud before they bloom! There is nothing to bring you down like a full blown cold, but with a well stocked medicine chest you will be ready to stop infections right away. Don’t ignore the symptoms. Treat them right away and get back on track for your whole family.

So to help with #3 we are excited to be offering a $25 virtual Visa gift card and additional Pfizer pediatric products to a lucky winner. You will receive 1 Children’s Advil® Suspension, 1 Children’s Robitussin ® DM Day/Night Pack, and 1 Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Cough. Stock up now for the Cold and Flu Season and save yourself a lot of headaches later.

*Please note, the virtual gift card can be used for online purchases only.

Feel free to enter by using the RC code below. Ends Nov 30, 2017. Good luck!
