Ballistic Case Company has a simple philosophy, Engineered Protection. Their dedicated team of engineers is passionate about one thing: perfecting protection. Through innovative design, durable materials, and 20+ years of experience, Ballistic delivers protective solutions for every lifestyle.
In the past years Ballistic has recognized that such popular protective smartphone cases have served to be an integral tool for firefighters. Considering their rugged lifestyle, the Ballistic models have served a role of keeping their phones out of harm’s way. Because of this need, Ballistic made a decision this holiday season to donate two million dollars’ worth of protective cases to volunteer firefighters across the country.
In order to reach as many people as possible, they partnered with the National Volunteer Fire Council to help spread the word. This initiative has become a mass spread of awareness for volunteer firefighters needs for supplies and fundraising.
Nearly 70% of all firefighters are volunteers. These courageous firefighters and their stations play a critical role in keeping our communities safe. In partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), the Ballistic Case Company had originally kicked off this initiative to donate one million dollars’ worth of protective smartphone cases to volunteers throughout the country. In one day, the one million dollars’ worth of cases was not only reached, but exceeded, because of the explosive response from men and women across the country. Now Ballistic is determined to donate a total of two million dollars’ worth of protective smartphone cases.
Volunteer firefighters can sign up to receive free cases at Facebook.com/BallisticCases. There, you can also do your part to say “Thanks a Million More” by nominating a local volunteer firefighter and their station, sharing your story, or by simply leaving a thank you message.
