Gifts That Give: Operation Sand Flea

Give that Give: Operation Sand Flea

In light of Veterans Day yesterday, I wanted to highlight a great skincare program with an even greater cause. Washingtonian Sara Damelio, founder of Skincando and creator of Combat-Ready Balm, has been donating care packages to the U.S. troops overseas since 2005. A multi-tasking cream, Combat-Ready Balm soothes sand flea bites, sunburn and dry skin for troops overseas. Also available in a lip balm, bug repellant and bar of soap, these gifts ($4.25-$12.50) do more than just offer immediate skin relief, it sends a sincere note of ‘thank you for serving our country.’ Donated jars are sent to a soldier in need, or a specific service member you may know, not to mention Skincando covers all shipping costs. For more information and how you can donate, click here. Here’s to our troops (and taking care of our skin)!
