Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Inclement weather often catches the world by surprise. Despite warnings, very few people know the type of devastation that takes place by storms and other phenomena until after it happens. Relief efforts are fronted by first responders, charitable organizations, and electrical companies. Without the dedicated efforts of these men and women, rebuilding and restoring towns to their original state would be difficult if not impossible.

Custom challenge coins honor individuals involved in disaster relief efforts. As demonstrated by the coin pictured here, personalized items like these have greater value than other award items. Challenge coins have long been a symbol of honor. Anyone given a coin knows what had to be done to acquire one. The feeling of good will lasts long after the relief effort is finished.

These coins help boost morale by making workers feel appreciated and valued.
