ChiliPads for Veterans
At Kryo Inc., we have enormous respect and a deep appreciation for the men and women who serve in the military. Their sacrifice inspires us to help men and women who have committed their lives defending our freedom enjoy a fuller life with improved sleep.
That’s why we have partnered with the Purple Heart Homes organization to ensure veterans get a good night’s sleep every night.
Purple Heart Homes provides housing solutions for service-connected disabled veterans. The charity was founded in 2008 by two combat veterans: John and Dale.
Surviving injuries in Iraq, John Gallina and Dale Beatty wanted to give the same support to all returning veterans that they received when they returned home. For them, that began with filling the gaps in housing options for returning soldiers or recovering veterans.
From injury recovery to sleep assistance, the ChiliPad aims to help veterans recoup and rest when they need it most.
Many returning veterans suffer from physical injuries. This physical trauma can disrupt sleep due to discomfort and pain from the injury or injuries. Deep sleep is crucial for recovery and a scientifically proven way to get better quality deep sleep is sleeping cool with the ChiliPad. Not to mention, the cool temperatures can help alleviate pain from physical injuries.
In addition to physical injuries, veterans return with psychological wounds as well. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is common in veterans and can negatively affect sleep. Stress from trauma can disrupt circadian rhythms, causing irregularities in sleep habits.
The ChiliPad can help reduce the negative sleep effects of trauma by regulating sleep temperature which signals the brain when to sleep and when to wake up.
Since beginning our partnership with Purple Heart Homes earlier this year, we have donated approximately 50 ChiliPads valued at over $18,000 to our local North Carolina branch, with more on the way.
Plus, our customer-centered promotions have helped us give even more. Because of the match-for-match Veteran’s Day promotion this past November, we will also donate over 105 more ChiliPads valued at over $40,000 in 2019.
ChiliPad will continue to support veterans and their families get the restorative sleep they need to recover both physically and mentally after sacrificing so much for our country.
