As a company, we are committed to being there for our global community both now and in the future.
When you join LifeWave, you immediately become an important part of our mission to meet the call of those in need all around the world. That's giving back made simple.
LifeWave and the Red Cross – a Partnership for Good
LifeWave's history of partnering with the Red Cross began back in 2005 when we provided financial aid to victims and relief workers dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Four years later, in 2009, LifeWave became an official Red Cross Storm Partner, allowing us to work directly with the organization to serve as a resource during times of disaster. As a Red Cross Storm Partner, LifeWave serves as a source for administering financial aid, disaster-relief products and materials, and works directly with the Red Cross to help our communities prepare for local disasters. We look forward to continuing to support both now and in the future and are honored to partner with the Red Cross to deliver help wherever it is needed.

LifeWave and the Military Order of the Purple Heart Department of Florida (MOPH)
LifeWave provides long-term donations to The Purple Heart Veterans of Florida, Inc., a subsidiary of the Military Order of The Purple Heart, Department of Florida (MOPH), in an effort to reach all Veterans nationally with service-related disabilities and an economic need, whether they are Purple Heart recipients or not. These individuals live with pain from injuries sustained in battle, and in most cases expensive pharmaceutical drugs do not provide sufficient pain relief. LifeWave committed a donation with a retail value in excess of $2.1 million. The donation included Aeon patches (for stress relief), IceWave patches (for pain relief) and Silent Nights patches (for improved sleep), providing Veterans fast and natural health benefits.
Long time LifeWave Member, Thomas Burke, first developed LifeWave's relationship with the MOPH and has been personally responsible for organizing many of the humanitarian aid programs LifeWave has provided during its 10-year history as a company.
Chartered by Congress in 1958, The Military Order of the Purple Heart is composed of military men and women who received the Purple Heart Medal for wounds suffered in combat. Although membership is restricted to the combat wounded, MOPH supports all veterans and their families with a myriad of nation-wide programs by Chapters and National Service Officers. The Order now includes about 45,000 total members. The majority of their funding is received from the MOPH Service Foundation through either restricted or unrestricted grants. The Service Foundation receives their money through various fundraising activities, such as thrift stores and a vehicle donation program. For more information, please visit www.purpleheart.org.
