Balm for Six Thousand Soldiers
WASHINGTON, D.C.- Operation Sand Flea announced the 6000th soldier recipient in the donation campaign that sends Skincando’s Combat-Ready Balm to troops in dire need of relief from sand flea bites, sunburn, and dry skin caused by the extreme climate and conditions in the Middle East.
Operation Sand Flea began in 2008 after the wife of a military service member sent Combat-Ready Balm to her husband stationed in Iraq. Requests quickly came pouring in from troops impressed with the only remedy they’d ever found to simultaneously combat their array of severe skin issues.
Skincando founder, Sara Damelio, began sending care packages with thank you notes on a regular basis, and the project grew to allow clients to donate directly to the troops and their loved ones fighting overseas. With a portion of every Skincando purchase funding Operation Sand Flea, Damelio has been able to ship her 6000th package to SPC Timothy Forgie who is currently stationed in Kuwait.
Combat-Ready Balm is renowned as the ultimate multi-tasking skin salve; moisturizing dry skin, soothing sun burn, and counteracting heat rash, blisters, bug bites, eczema and more.
