This has been a hard year for parents. No doubt about it. We were forced into home-schooling our kids in March, while trying to work from home as well (if we were lucky enough to still even have a job).
With the school year starting again, most kids are at home, or maybe they are going to school 1-2 days each week.
It’s a lot for parents to juggle.
Typically, I start the day with a ton of energy, and a couple of cups of coffee, but by 1 or 2PM I am spent. The combination of teaching my three kids, trying to do my job, and just the overall stress gets me worn down. In March/April/May I was struggling, and often times didn’t get an afternoon/evening workout in because I was too tired.
That all changed when Lightning Sticks hit the market in June. Created by Dadz, Lightning Sticks are packets of a plant-based energy supplement powder optimized for on-demand alertness, mental clarity, and focus but without the negative effects of large doses of caffeine, sugar and artificial flavorings typically found in most energy drinks.
One Lightning Stick after lunch gives me the pick-me-up I need to power through the rest of the day. I mix it with some cold water and ice, and right away, the second half of my day has begun. I’ve got more energy for the kids and my work, and I’ve started to exercise again.
In addition to offering consumer products that positively benefit the lives of dads, Dadz in on a mission to support active fathers, and their communities, however possible.
DADZ is partnering with a revolving set of dad- and family-focused charities, donating at least one percent of all proceeds. Their first partnership is with Atlanta-based Fathers Incorporated that works collaboratively with organizations around the country to identify and advocate for social and legislative changes to lead to healthy father involvement with children, regardless of the father’s marital or economic status, or geographic location.
DADZ has plans to roll out a pipeline of innovation, including wellness and personal care products for dad and baby later this year, with retail availability to follow.
