Motivators Organizes Stress Ball Donation for Troops in Iraq

Promotional product distributor Motivators teams with suppliers Ariel and Bulletline to donate 4,000 stress balls to an American military's combat stress control unit serving in Iraq.

January 28, 2010. Westbury, NY. NY. Long Island based promotional product distributor Motivators, Inc announced today its partnership with two suppliers for a donation of 4,000 promotional stress balls to the 1908th Medical Detachment, Combat Stress Control Unit in Iraq. Suppliers Ariel and Bulletline each generously gave 2,000 stress balls, which have been shipped overseas and will be distributed to troops in stress management classes.

After first receiving word that Army psychologists were looking to utilize stress balls in their stress management sessions with troops who would be engaging in combat, the Westbury based distributor immediately put out a call to suppliers to engage their assistance with the donation. Florida based supplier Bulletline immediately pledged 2,000 of their US Map stress relievers and Customer Service Senior Manager, Dee Miller stated that the company was more than happy to participate. "It's an honor to assist with such heart-felt project that will hopefully relieve even an ounce of stress of brave troops, or bring a smile to their faces. We want them to know we recognize and appreciate them," she said. "What a wonderful way to partner with one of our valued business partners in an endeavor that is not just about sales and profits, but about the human spirit."

Joseph Warmbrodt, Account Manager at Ariel Premium Supply, who generously donated 2,000 round promotional stress relievers, also attests that it's an honor to be able to provide something that will help the hard working men and women overseas. "As the Army psychologists know, these products really can relieve stress," he stated. "It's our honor to provide the stress balls. We take our social responsibility seriously and we want to give back to our local community, as well as the world."

Motivators CEO Ken Laffer agrees with these sentiments and wishes to thank the Ariel and Bulletline for their fast response and heart-felt effort. "Motivators and its employees believe reaching out in a time of crisis is a social responsibility that we take very seriously," he said. "It is a great honor to be able to provide our troops with the necessary tools that help relieve the stresses of war. We wish all the troops Godspeed and a safe return home."
