I’m going to get some use out of this, people. Perfect. Perfect. Anyone can have their initials because that’s what gio’s provided for us today as well as his six-pack crate and you can get your initials, Michael, I have this one coming home for you. You can have your initials or numbers, what’s great about these is they come in like little puzzles but there’s no glue, no nail, no nothing to assemble and you get to create your fun crate to carry your fabulous craft beer.

All right, and then we’ve got — I love this company, so this was started by robin. Two great helpers, Madison and Spence and what I love about this company is that at 55 years old robin said, enough with working for other people. I’m going to work for myself. Right? Yes. Yep. And so you resigned. Resigned and said, okay, I’m starting my own business. Within a few months, these earring sets landed on Oprah’s favorite things. A big assortability of her modern, feminine gorgeous earring set, five pairs unbelievable for travel and these linen pouches beautiful with sequin lettering. I like this one that Madison has and Spencer is going to help us with the truth on these. And so instead of the Normal price of $25 to $40, Spence, what do you got? Get it out. Savings of 50% to 59%. So all of these pieces are $24. These businesses are all amazing. But I know you have a special surprise for one of them. We do. We do. So I told you here about gio who is a Navy veteran. What I didn’t tell you is that gio has real strength in the community and mentors other veterans to help them start businesses. He hires veterans. He also has a very strong commitment to the environment. All of the wood I uses is sourced right here in Pittsburgh. He’s also made a commitment with what’s the organization? One tree planted. One tree planted and so for every “Gma” sale, you’re going to be able to do what? Every sale we’ll plant a tree and it’s going to help with the wildfires in California to replenish that. So for all of those reasons he is a small business superhero and to honor a small business superhero our sponsor at vistaprint, come on in here, Sara from vistaprint has some helpers. Gio, gen can’t see what that is but that — this is a check for you for $10,000. To help you make a bigger impact on the environment. I think Michael Strahan in new York has something to ask. Gio, I’m an army brat and learned so much from my father and want to thank you for your service but I’m curious what lessons did you learn in the military to help you when you started your own business? Yeah, I mean I really think that the discipline and the attention to detail that the military instills can translate into any successful career when you move on. I tell you what, I am honored to have my bottle opener here and I can’t wait for my crate, all I got to do is stock it with beer so thank you for hooking me up. I appreciate you, gio. Congratulations. Thank you so much. Sure thing, Michael. That’s a great way to kick it off. We partnered with all the companies on these great deals. You can get details on our website. Tomorrow Tory is heading to Charlotte. Come out and see her.
