New silicone ring and dog ID tag collection will directly contribute to providing scholarships to the families of fallen or disabled US military and first responders.
SANTA ANA, Calif. (May 25, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – QALO has partnered with Folds of Honor to launch a collection of comfortable yet durable silicone rings and jingle-free dog ID tags that allow customers to show their support for families of fallen or disabled US military and first responders. For each product sold from the collection, $1 will go towards providing life-changing scholarships to the spouses and children of these American heroes.
The collection includes four rings and two dog ID tag designs. These six products represent the six branches of the military and the six stars shown on the flag when folded during a soldier’s funeral. Each ring features variations of red, white, and blue and/or patriotic symbols to pay homage to the sacrifices these fallen heroes have made for our country. The dog ID tags resemble traditional dog tags worn in the military, so even furry friends can show their support.
“Active members of the US military, veterans, and their families have been a pillar of the QALO community since the beginning, and so we were honored to collaborate with Folds of Honor to support the families of our nation’s heroes,” said Emily Mullins, General Manager of QALO. “We worked diligently with the Folds of Honor team to ensure that this collection truly encapsulated the symbolism behind the Folds of Honor mission. By wearing these rings and ID tags, we hope our community feels a sense of empowerment and pride in supporting the sacrifices of others.”
“Folds of Honor is proud to team up with QALO,” said Folds of Honor President Col Nick Nichols. “QALO’s long-standing support of the military and first responders aligns with our mission. We believe this partnership will increase scholarship funding to the families we serve. Together we will meet sacrifice with hope.”
