With 20% of the U.S. population—about 60 million people—living in rural areas, you would think that they would have equal access to the healthcare that the residents of urban areas do.
But did you know that residents in rural areas are more likely than residents of urban areas to die from heart disease, cancer, stroke and chronic lower respiratory disease?
Today is National Rural Health Day, a day where we applaud the ongoing efforts, contributions, and collaborations occurring in rural communities to address the unique challenges in accessing and delivering health care services.
Help your community showcase the efforts of rural healthcare providers, hospitals, and clinics today by organizing any of these activities at your office:
Staff luncheon with keynote speaker from rural healthcare system
Group fitness activity/organized run to promote a healthy lifestyle
With a rise in COVID-19 cases across the nation, we are all yearning for something to do (other than being cooped up in our houses!). Today is as good a day as ever to just go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature- and take your mind off the horrors of 2020.
Here are our must-have items to celebrate Take A Hike Day:

What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done? For a lot of us, that might be something as minute as killing that large spider in the corner of your bathroom. Or maybe you are a brave woman who has gone through childbirth (or you are the brave husband who stood beside her). Bravery has many faces. For a very special group of Americans, the bravest thing they’ve done is protect and defend our country in times of war.
Today is Veterans Day, a very special day in which Americans celebrate and honor all military veterans. The holiday originated as Armistice Day in 1919, as it honored the ending of WWI on the 11th hour of 11th day of 11th month in 1918. But in 1954, after the end of WWII, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in order to honor American veterans of all wars, not just those who fought in WWI.
What better way to celebrate and thank our veterans than with an American flag mini Maglite flashlights. Handing them out at your company or town’s Veterans Day celebration will brighten up everyone’s day.
The holiday season is officially upon us, and people are eagerly putting together their holiday gift lists. It’s best to plan ahead and take care of the employees and customers on your list who need an architect scale ruler. These are the best ones to spoil them with:

The must-have items that your employees and customers would appreciate this time of year are Maglite flashlights. If they’re heading to their car in the dark at 5:00pm, they’ll need some help to find their way there!
