Operation Sand Flea {Donate Relief} #charity

*I was monetarily compensated to write this post. All words and thoughts are my own.
Donate relief to our troops.

The military is my family. My husband served in the 506th Army Infantry Regiment during the Iraq campaign. We have two boys named in honor of soldiers my husband served beside. These soldiers were phenomenal men who made the ultimate sacrifice for their family and country. We also have soldiers who are returning home from service with major life-altering injuries. Men like Jonathon Mullen. Jonathon lost both of his legs from an IED explosion. Life altering, life changing, but a military man never gives up. Never.

Jonathon Mullen has a true passion and incredible raw talent for photography. He is currently living his civilian dream right now in Maryland with his wife Gemma and his photography business Jonathon Mullen Photography, LLC. His photos are REALLY outstanding in every sense of the word. I adore his black & white shots of the "everyday man". As you can see from the video above, Jonathon is having no problems getting about, but he was living with daily stump irritations from his prosthetics. That is...until he got a job shooting a product line for Skincando. It was a true blessing in disguise.

Sara Damelio, the owner of Skincando, has a special natural product in her line called Combat-Ready Balm. The Combat-Ready Balm is composed to do it all! Sunburn/wind relief, jock itch, eczema, minor abrasions, bug bites, and keeping the dastardly sand fleas away. Hence the name "Operation Sand Flea". Jonathon states how he uses the Combat-Ready balm everyday before applying his prosthetics, "...with next to no irritaion to my stumps". Skincando and Jonathon Mullen have since teamed up and are now working to change the lives of other injured veterans through Operation Sand Flea.
