Air Cannons, Inc. Adds Convenience and Creativity to Whipping Crowds Into Frenzy

Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 3, 2007

You see air cannons in action just about every night in arenas and stadiums around the U.S. and the world. Air Cannons, Inc. has added the convenience of shrink wrapping the T-shirts so it’s more convenient for the shooter to blast out more T-shirts in a shorter time. And they’ve added new products that can shot into the crowd.

Air Cannons have been featured lately in such shows as “American Chopper”, “Pimp My Ride” and a commercial for ESPN. Air cannons are used as a marketing tool at events to excite the crowd, but also brand the sports team or their sponsors. Besides shooting T-shirts, the air cannons can also shoot other items that include coupons or other branding material.

Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, had this to say about air cannons in his January 15, 2007, blog posting: “The minute the T Shirt cannons or slingshots come on the court, field or ice, every man, woman or child of any age is up screaming their head off trying to get a free T Shirt . They have no idea what is on the shirt. They know the chances of getting one are slim, but it doesn’t matter. It’s T Shirts gone wild.”

With the new shrink wrap service, each T-shirt will be wrapped in plastic and ready to launch, providing a nice professional look when a person catches the shirt. The shrink wrap also protects the T-shirts from dirt and scuffs in case it hits the ground. Previously, T-shirts were wrapped in tape or rubber bands to keep the T-shirt together while in flight.

Air Cannons does the printing and rolling of the shirts so they are ready to blast out when the client receives them. This saves time, money and hassle from having to roll and bind hundreds or thousands of T-shirts.

Air Cannons is also offering new and innovative products that can be shot into the crowd. Air Cannons can have custom promotional products developed that symbolize your company and are perfect for launching out from an air cannon. Ideas include bottles, cans, stuffed animals and soft toy cars. Promotional products can be imprinted with coupons and contact information. With hundreds of possible shapes, stress relievers will provide a unique marketing tool for companies.

“The new shrink wrap service will help our clients shoot more T-shirts and products into crowd and increase their branding,” said Jake Wilson, co-owner of Air Cannons, Inc. “We know the crowds light up when our cannons come out during breaks, and we’re looking forward to seeing that happen more often with our new shrink service and the greater variety of products shot into the crowd.”

For additional information on custom air cannons and blastable promotional products, contact Adam Whitney or visit http://www.aircannonsinc.com. They can help you customize an air cannon to excite the crowds at your events.

About Air Cannons, Inc:

Feel Safer Now, Inc. Joins the War on Crime With Newly Launched Website

Asheville, NC (PRWEB) August 21, 2007

The Feel Safer Now group has taken on the task of helping consumers level the playing field with criminals. http://www.FeelSaferNow.com offers the latest in self defense and security products as well as free crime preventions tips, strategies, family safety, travel safety and what to do in a bad situation.

FeelSaferNow.com was founded by Robert Hogan, security specialist, in the hopes that good innocent people would learn how to protect themselves and their families against criminals. Our motto is “don’t become a victim”. So often, an innocent person is attacked and they have no plan in place for such violence, nor do they have any self defense items on their person or in their car or home.

Home invasions, child abductions, rape and crime in general are on the rise. With all the crime we are “drenched” in daily from the news and other media, you would think the world has gone mad. The U.S. has 5 times more murders in just one single year than all the deaths of US forces in the past 4 years of the Iraqi and Afghanistan war. This figure does not even include other crimes like rape, assault, home invasions, or burglary.

Did You Know ? Police cannot protect and are not legally liable for failing to protect individual citizens. Courts have without exception concluded that when a municipality or other governmental entity undertakes to furnish police services, it assumes a duty only to the public at large and not to individual members of the community”. A former Attorney General told Florida legislators that police responded to only 200,000 of 700,000 calls for help to Dade County authorities. The facts are that nearly 2,400,000 people use a gun to defend themselved every year. Of these 192,000 are women defending themselves against sexual attacks. Women and children are the most tragic victims of violent and sexual crimes as they are the easiest targets of predators. 92% merely brandish the weapon or shoot into the air, therefore in only 8% is the attacker killed or wounded. However, law-abiding citizens are routinely prosecuted for brandishing or using a firearm in self-defense. This is why it is important to use defense weapons other than a gun. Stun Guns, Tasers, and Pepper Spray are ideal choices.

Feel Safer Now offers free crime prevention tips and strategies to help you in the worst situations. Our security and safety website superstores offer hundreds of product options that are easy to use . Many of the security products are disguised cleverly in ordinary looking objects such as the Pepper Pager, the Cell Phone Stun Gun, and the Nanny Cameras that look like stuffed animals or a pack of baby wipes.

For runners and joggers, there is no better protection tool than our Hot Walkers which are one pound weights with pepper spray built right ito them.

Feel Safer Now is making it easier than ever to protect yourself and your family.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 22, 2009

The Inter-American Bank of Development (BID) Conference met in Medellin, Colombia from March 26th – March 31st. This event was sponsored, in part, by xchangeAGENT Inc., a payment processing company that specializes in emerging markets. The six day event had a central strategy, globally minded, to focus on improving competitiveness, furthering social development, and to govern and fortify Colombia.

Since the opportunity for free trade is on the horizon, enhancing Colombia’s competitiveness in the global marketplace was one of the central themes at the BID conference. The banks intend to support Colombia in corporate development to create new job opportunities and to increase growth.

Another focus at the conference was that of social development, helping the most unfortunate population better their living conditions enabling them to contribute to the county’s growth. The bank will support the development of human capital through investment of early child development or transitional programs like school-work, the quality and efficiency improvement of social services, and the development and expansion of social protection programs.

The final theme at the BID was to govern and fortify the process to decentralize. The strategy will support the capacity of the country in the provision of services and the procedure of the decentralization process; fortifying the control of the State; the efficiency and effectiveness of the public expense; and the regulatory capacity of the State.

xchangeAGENT’s presence at this significant national conference for Colombia only served to solidify xchangAGENT’s relationships within this country. “We chose to sponsor the BID conference because we wanted to show our full support for Colombia’s efforts to finalize the Free Trade Agreement and decentralize the banks. By being a continuous support during these economic times, we are letting Colombia know that we are in this with them for the long haul,” said Michael Prozer, CEO of xchangeAGENT and XA Worldwide Corp.

We have encouraged the use of our solutions as a revenue source for charitable, nutritional, and educational programs that are very much needed.”

Support Collectors, Inc. Accepting Clients in Georgia

Champlin, MN (PRWEB) January 25, 2010

Support Collectors, Inc. announced today that it has become registered in Georgia and is now accepting child support clients in that state. In 2009, the Georgia Legislature passed a law requiring all private child support collection agencies to become state-registered in order to provide services. We applaud the Georgia Legislature for enacting a law that reasonably regulates private agencies and imposes stringent consumer protection requirements, said President Tim Turner. Being able to help parents in Georgia collect the child support they so greatly need is an important facet of Support Collectors national presence.

Turner commended the Georgia Division of Child Support Services for the fine services they provide to millions of parents. Georgia does a great job collecting child support, but it is a fact that with their budget restraints and large caseloads they simply cannot collect for every parent. For the parents they cannot help, private agencies like Support Collectors are often a good option and a wise choice.

Support Collectors is a private company that contracts directly with custodial parents to help them collect their court-ordered child support. The company has been in business since 1993 and maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Support Collectors uses on-site investigators and experienced child support collectors to assist parents struggling to collect their child support. Every one of our employees stands behind our mission of making a difference for families one family at a time, noted Turner. For more information visit the companys website at http://supportcollectors.com or call 888-78-CHILD (888-782-4453).

Newmans Own, Inc.

Westport, CT (Vocus) April 20, 2010

Newmans Own, Inc. announced today the 10 winners of the Newmans Own Award for best volunteer initiatives as part of the 2009 USA WEEKEND Magazines Make a Difference Day. The 10 award-winning and inspiring projects took place last Oct. 24 on USA WEEKEND Make a Difference Day, the nations largest single day of volunteering. The project organizers, as well as their inspiration for the initiatives, are profiled in the April 18th issue of USA WEEKEND. The story release coincides with the beginning of National Volunteer Week.

Since 1994, Paul Newman, Newmans Own, Inc. and the Newmans Own Foundation have been leading supporters of Make A Difference Day and together have contributed $ 1.6 million to Make A Difference Day projects.

Hundreds of grassroots volunteers have been recognized since 1994 with the Newmans Own Make A Difference Day Award, each receiving $ 10,000 in seed money to sustain their efforts into the next year or to donate to a project-related charity.

“Make A Difference Day organizers and volunteers are an incredible resource at a time when volunteerism is most needed. Newmans Own is very proud to help nourish their work, says Tom Indoe, president and chief operating officer of Newmans Own, Inc.

Since 1992, USA WEEKEND has conducted the nationwide initiative, Make A Difference Day, held every fourth Saturday in October, to encourage citizens of communities nationwide to help their neighbors. More than three million volunteers participated in the event last October. During the past 17 years, the day has empowered tens of millions of volunteers to bring about change in their own neighborhoods via their altruistic efforts.

County outdoes itself

Talk about a Rocky Mountain high. The 10th annual Make A Difference Day in Larimer County, Colo., actually was Make A Difference Week, with 4,450 people aiding 75 organizations and about 40,000 residents. It was our biggest ever, says Jami McMannes, volunteer center specialist for the United Way of Larimer County. Volunteers of all ages completed 150 projects countywide. Good deeds included raking leaves for the elderly, harvesting crops for the hungry, and clearing graffiti, trash and weeds. And at the Animal House shelter, 12 Vaught Frye Ripley Design employees reconditioned the grounds around the dog kennels.

McMannes says she believes the iffy economy drove the record-breaking turnout: A lot of people cant give money right now, but they can see that their time helps.

Teen fishes to fight hunger

Before joining an after-school program at the Florence Fuller Child Development Center, Danny Tijerina, 10, had never heard of a fish warden. Now he wants to be one. Dannys aspirations were sparked in a fishing class taught by volunteer Lucas Metropulos, 17. The Boca Raton teen started the course to teach needy kids the skills to feed themselves and their families. He also covers sea life and conservation. I want them to understand the oceans resources and how they need to be protected, he says. For Make A Difference Day, Lucas raised money to take his 20 students fishing on the Atlantic a first for many. They were naturals, catching kingfish, red grouper and triggerfish. Lucas is great. He teaches others and he has taught me, Danny says.

Good deed nourishes souls

Olga El Sehamy first learned about Make A Difference Day in the Sept. 13, 2009, issue of USA WEEKEND, which featured a call to action from our nations mayors. It was like a kick in the pants, she says. Wanting to help the homeless, El Sehamy decided to cook hot meals for those living near Union Square in New York City, asking husband Mostafa and 19-year-old son Alex to pitch in.

On Oct. 23, 2009, Mostafa and Olga stayed up late making 50 chicken dinners. The next day, in the pouring rain, they loaded up the food and drove to the city to meet Alex and four friends from NYU to give it all to those in need. Olga described the day as soul-satisfying because, 22 years ago, she was assaulted by a vagrant: Once I handed out the food and people were saying thank you, I felt really proud of just not being afraid.

New York, N.Y.


Needy homeowners get help

Anna Trisvane, 79, of Providence, spent 40 years fostering nearly 40 children, giving them food, clothing and the rarest commodity love. But it took a toll, and she was left with little time or cash for home repairs. On Make A Difference Day, Rebuilding Together Providence stepped in to paint, clean and replace faulty wiring in Trisvanes home. Rebuilding Together, a national non-profit that helps low-income home owners, joined forces with Lowes to rejuvenate 35 homes across the country on Oct. 24. Lowes contributed $ 350,000 in grants and donated supplies and manpower; Rebuilding Together offered its vast community resources, including skilled volunteers.

$ 10,000 Make A Difference Day Award from Newmans Own goes to Rebuilding Together.


Drive yields a mountain of food

The food pantry is not just full, its overflowing. Despite all odds. In February and March, Kentuckys Franklin County Emergency Food Pantry usually struggles to make ends meet. Once the holidays pass and winter comes on, demand picks up as giving falls off, president Tom Utterack says. But this past winter, the pantry didnt have to suffer through a seasonal drought. A Make A Difference Day drive organized by the state helped stockpile 20,000 extra pounds of food for that organization. Kentucky has arranged an annual food collection since 2001. Although state unemployment rates had hit a 26-year high of 10.5%, the drive tallied a whopping 123 tons of food a 74% increase over 2008s Make a Difference Day drive. Organizer Eileen Cackowski says the massive outpouring reflects the humanity of the Bluegrass State. I see it in Kentucky all the time, she says.

$ 10,000 Make A Difference Day Award from Newmans Own goes to the Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service.


Fraternity pledges to do good

Think fraternity. Think partying? Think again. Community service means a lot to the members of Delta Sigma Pi collegiate business fraternity, who have made participation in Make A Difference Day a tradition. As college students, we know were lucky, says University of Pittsburgh chapter member Dan Kyung. We feel like its our duty to help those who arent as fortunate. Across the country, roughly 2,000 members from half the fraternitys 195 chapters leapt to action Oct. 24. They took on more than 100 projects, ranging from helping special-needs children to raising money for the poor. Delta Sigma Pi began encouraging Make A Difference Day involvement more than a decade ago and lists it as one of the fraternitys top three community service initiatives.

$ 10,000 Make A Difference Day Award from Newmans Own goes to Delta Sigma Pi Leader ship Foundation, Oxford, Ohio.


A town unites to honor a beloved teacher

High school teacher Dana Hungerford felt blessed just to be alive, to have a chance from God to make a difference. For 30 years, Hungerford shared his positive outlook with others while teaching math at Fairfield Comm
