Giving Tuesday for Homeless Veterans

  Mo’s Heroes has joined #GivingTuesday December 1st, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.  Through Giving Tuesday, Mo’s Heroes encourages donors like you to continue to help our U.S. veterans in need especially ahead of a holiday season of gifts and giving. We use this event to again put on the forefront the physical and emotional challenges our homeless veterans face during a cold holiday season. Giving Tuesday in the U.S. usually follows Thursday’s Thanksgiving, and the consumer active events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, on the next day, Tuesday, we remind people to also use their wallet for a really good cause and help homeless veterans, through Mo’s Heroes, get access to food support, housing assistance, clothing drives and employment opportunities. Giving Tuesday is a great way to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to charities and causes on which they want to make an impact. According to Giving Tuesday campaign, since its inception in 2012, online giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving has increased more than four-fold. “We have been[…]

VeggieFresh LED Releases the ST72 – Waterproof LED Grow Light For Commercial Greenhouses & Vertical Farming

Growing vegetables indoors with LED Grow Lights is easier with VeggieFresh LED’s ST72 Waterproof lighting system.   VeggieFresh LED has released the all new ST72 LED Grow Light bar for commercial greenhouses and vertical farming.   Indoor vegetable growers can take advantage of the ST72’s fan-free, waterproof design and high efficiency to reduce costs, improve crop quality, and increase profits from locally grown produce. Electricity costs can be reduced by 50% or more which means a fast return on investment for commercial growers.    A potential benefit in reduced production costs is that it could open up the market to other plants that were not previously profitable. This gives local growers an advantage over their competition by offering produce that consumers are unable to get from other local sources.   The ST72 is based on COB (chips on board) technology that allows many small LEDs to share the same circuit board instead of individually packaged. The advantage here is greater efficiency and color mixing that lends itself to the close-up, stacked growing conditions inherent in commercial vertical farming.   With an IP 65 rating, the ST72 can withstand wet conditions and spraying water common in greenhouses and vertical farming applications. The fanless[…]
