By Friday night, the entire back of our van will be filled!” Said Russell, who has been documenting the fundraising journey on TikTok. Cassevah, who quit his job and cashed in his retirement to start LittleBricks Charity, uses his platform to advocate for these exceptional children and fundraise for LittleBricks Charity. “After breaking my second world record, I found my purpose in life.

Holly knows firsthand the effect these LEGO® Building Sets have on her patients." And what makes this delivery EXTRA Special is that LittleBricks Charity gets to host a Build Event with Cook Children’s Child Life Specialist Team. “We are so excited to build moments of joy with amazing kids. The staff at Cook Children’s have gone above and beyond to create a memorable event for the patients they care for. We are honored to get to be a part of that.

We have already received donations from all over the world to help “Build BIG Smiles” on these Epic Kids! Now it is time for Texas to show the world how epic This area truly is.” Cassevah and the Child Life Specialists he works with say the donated LEGO® Sets are the most requested toy for hospitalized children.

February is Pet Dental Health Month

YourUpdateTV

Dental disease affects 80% of adult dogs and 96% of senior dogs[1], but new data from WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ® finds that very few Gen Z and Millennial pet parents are brushing their dog’s teeth daily, and less than one-half (44%) could list the signs of disease to their vet.[2] With February being Pet Dental Health Month, it is the perfect opportunity to start a proper doggy dental routine. Recently, Dr. Danielle Bernal, veterinarian with WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ®, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss pet dental health and what pet parents can do to establish a healthy routine. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/cI_Hd6OfAIw Ideally, pet parents should be thinking about their dog’s teeth the same way they do their own. When it comes to at-home care, daily brushing of a dog’s teeth with a toothbrush and special canine toothpaste works, but pet parents often face toothbrush troubles.In fact, WHIMZEES by Wellness found that Gen Z and Millennial pet parents’ dogs have given side eye (58%) or run away (41%) at the sight of one. “If you are struggling with brushing your dog’s teeth consistently, incorporating a daily dental chew can be an excellent resource to help maintain your dog’s dental care and keep those tails wagging,” said Dr. Danielle Bernal. “In addition to daily dental care, it’s important to recognize the signs of periodontal disease, such as discoloration, broken or loose teeth, super stinky breath, reduced appetite and inflamed gums. By incorporating a daily dental chew like WHIMZEES by Wellness, pet parents can ensure they’re treating their dogs well and give them healthy smiles to live happier and healthier lives together.” WHIMZEES by Wellness all-natural dental treats allows pet parents to treat dogs well by combining the joy of treats with health benefits of supporting healthy teeth and gums. By giving just one WHIMZEES treat a day to fight bacteria that resurfaces daily, dogs get twice the cleaning power because WHIMZEES last three times longer to provide more cleaning time.[3] They are thoughtfully engineered with grooves and ridges to provide dogs with both chomping and cleaning, making WHIMZEES the treat that treats them well. WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ® dental treats are conveniently available at pet specialty retailers, national retailers and online.

In her role as on-staff veterinarian at Wellness Pet Company, maker of premium natural food and treats for dogs and cats, including WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ®, she educates pet parents and retailers alike on the importance of natural ingredients like wholesome meats and nutrient-rich superfoods and the highest quality standards. She passionately believes that proper nutrition helps pets lead happier, healthier lives and she shares that message with pet parents [1] Ozy, Sweeney, Dog Owners Have a New Obsession: Dental Health for Their Pets, March 2019 [2] Conducted in December 2022, Pollfish collected data via an online survey from a random sampling of 1,000 Gen Z and Millennial (ages 18-41) dog parents identified as demographically representative of the U.S. population.

Chairman & CEO Joshua Sodaitis Announces Annual Letter to Shareholders

Peer to Peer Network

McapMediaWire -- Peer To Peer Network a.k.a MobiCard Inc. (OTC: PTOP ) today released the following annual letter to shareholders: Dear Fellow Shareholders: Each year, I make it a priority to write to you on behalf of PTOP. I believe that a clear and concise strategy outlined at the beginning of the year helps keep the company focused on the strategic objectives that we aim to achieve. Although I know that each of you has different priorities, we all want the same thing, the value of growth and the company to succeed in our goals. In the year 2022, we faced challenges at every turn: a lingering pandemic, unprecedented government actions, a highly polarized congressional U.S. election, mounting inflation, a war in Ukraine, and a dramatic economic funding shortage that short-changed PTOP. We lost a member of our advisory board who decided to be involved in negotiating the MOBICARD™ 2.0 tech contract and then disappeared after having promised to pay for the contract. We hope he is okay and will return for the new year. Adding to the disruption, these events were unfolding while we learned that DWAC eligibility would not automatically make PTOP shares accepted for transfers to existing brokerage firms. Ultimately, we could only afford half of the strategic objectives we had laid out for the year 2022. Since I have been CEO dating back to 2018… 2022 was the 1 st year in which I was not able to knock down all of the strategic objectives I had laid out in my annual letter at the beginning of that year. But during this difficult time, we have a moment to put aside our differences, offer solutions and work with shareholders who may not have been as active previously. In the year 2023, we have an opportunity to come together in defense of PTOP & MOBICARD™ 2.0’s future. We have seen in many years prior that the shareholders of PTOP have come together previously during instances of conflict and crisis. I am optimistic that we can reengage with previously disgruntled shareholders, & long-lost advisors, for all of our interests collectively. This juncture is also a moment when our company needs to work together to achieve the mutually beneficial strategic objectives, I laid out ahead for the year 2023. Although I began this annual letter to shareholders in reflection of 2022’s challenging landscape, I remain proud of what our company, our employees, & 1099 independent contractors have achieved, collectively and individually. As you know, I have long championed the essential role of transparency, and honesty in our community — MOBICARD™ 2.0 has the potential for bringing people together, enabling companies and individuals to reach for their dreams, and being a source of strength in entrepreneurism. Throughout this past challenging year, we never stopped doing all the things we should be doing to serve our shareholders and remain true to our transparent financial reporting requirements. Looking back on the last year and the past 4 years — starting from my time as CEO in late 2018 — it is clear that my financial discipline, constant investment in innovation, and ongoing development to better the company, is what enabled us to persevere in our steadfast dedication to help shareholders and maintain our financial reporting requirements. I’d like to note some steadfast principles that are worth repeating. The first is that our management team goes to work every day recognizing the enormous responsibility that we have to our shareholders. Maintaining our ability to be listed on the OTC Markets Pink Sheets is the top priority. Second, while I don’t run the company worrying about the stock price in the short run, in the long run, our stock price is a measure of the progress we have made over the years. This progress is a function of continual investments in our people, systems, and product, in good and bad times, to build our capabilities. Whether looking back to 2017 when I first got on the board and the stock was at $0.0001 per share, or in the years since, Peer To Peer Network’s shareholders' investments have resulted in our stock’s significant improvement. These important investments that many of you will make directly into PTOP in the weeks and months to come will also drive our company’s future prospects and position it to grow and prosper. I have no doubt in my mind that 2023 will see the release of MOBICARD™ 2.0 and its debut will lead to significant improvement in the appreciation of our stock price, and of the value of the company overall. In 2022 we announced the Kick-off of a complete front-end overhaul. We completed that goal. We also announced a complete redesign that would include improvements to our web apps, and mobile apps, and make MOBICARD™ easier to understand, faster to use, and add additional functionality. We were calling it MOBICARD™2.0. We are $30,000 short of having MOBICARD™ 2.0 completed. That is why I am discussing with our tech team the idea of perhaps releasing MOBICARD™2.0 in stages. This will allow the app to be out and gathering users while we push out updates to add the other additional functionality and features. This will be a big decision for 2023 that will greatly depend on the capital available to the company come to the end of February. We have consistently described to you, our shareholders, the basic principles, and strategies we use to build this company — from maintaining a fortress balance sheet, constantly satisfying regulators, continually improving risk governance and controls, and serving shareholders. We are proud to announce that our Q1 financials will be completed soon, and we will continue to clear debt off of our books, while not accepting any form whatsoever of any toxic debt. In 2022 we applied and were approved for DWAC eligibility. In 2023 we plan to hold a majority vote to effectuate key corporate actions with FINRA that will better suit the company and enable further investment from existing shareholders. Namely a restructure. I hope to conclude this vote in the next week and will make an announcement accordingly. In 2023 we plan to file a form C with the SEC. This will enable Reg CF or Crowd Funding. This will enable PTOP to seek the much-needed funding to achieve strategic objectives. Crowd Funding allows for an unlimited number of unaccredited investors and also allows for PTOP to advertise and promote the purchase of our stock directly through the company on social media and online. We plan to work with a specialty company that will host it on their site as well as promotes us to a list of their investors. In 2023 we need to complete a PCAOB compliant audit in order to clear both the Reg CF and in our opinion the corporate actions/ restructure. If PTOP is able to obtain the funding necessary to complete these objectives, our stock should be well over a penny and there most likely will be an entirely new shareholder base interested in our company right in time for our MOBICARD™2.0 apps to drop. We also plan to file an entirely new patent based on our MOBICARD™2.0 solutions. This should build momentum. The plan is for 2023 is simple. Make a press release after the following completed strategic objectives: Complete a Majority Vote Engage a Crowd Funding Company Engage & Fund an Auditor Pay our Tech Team to get out Mobicard™2.0 into the stores Complete the PCAOB audit File with FINRA for a stock re-structure File form C with the S.E.C. for a Reg CF = Crowd Funding / Get approved Engage with Investors Hub (Home Take over Page placed adds) Release Mobicard™ 2.0 Promote User Growth through a well-funded PR & Marketing campaign. If you look deeper, you will find that PTOP’s success and accomplishments are founded on our commitment to EACH-OTHER. Shareholder value can be built only if you maintain a healthy and vibrant company, which means doing a good job taking care of funding requirements, employees, and shareholder interests. Conversely, how can you have a healthy company if you neglect any of these stakeholders? As we have learned in 2022, there are myriad of ways that each stakeholder is dependent on the other. Adhering to our basic principles and strategies allows us to drive forward, and properly manage our capital, as we have consistently demonstrated over the past year. Finally, the basis of our success is our people. Our shareholders and new prospective shareholders that pay to build the company and maintain the regulatory requirements, PTOP’s CEO who makes the strategic decisions, manages the risks, determines our spending priorities. Whatever your view is of PTOP’s complexity and the risks and opportunities ahead, having a great team of people — with guts, brains, integrity, and an enormous capability to navigate personally challenging circumstances while maintaining high standards of professional excellence — is what ensures our prosperity, now and in the future. If I can round up the $150,000 necessary to move the company forward in the next two months we will clear more than half the list within 6 months. We will all be able to experience the BEST year PTOP has ever had! I plan to answer a bunch of shareholder questions on the PTOP message boards on Thursday so I encourage anyone with any comments questions, or concerns to reach out at www.ptopnetwork.com Just think about where the stock can go if we knock down the objectives I have outlined. It will come down to funding to get those initiatives accomplished. together we can make this by far the best year ever.

FDA Ruling On OTC Hearing Aids Is A Game Changer For InnerScope An "FDA Ruling on OTC Hearing Aids went into effect on October 17, 2022, allowing millions of Americans with hearing loss to purchase hearing aids without a prescription, medical exam, or needing a professional to fit the hearing aids. But until the FDA ruling, getting hearing aids required a medical exam, prescription, and fitting done by an audiologist. In addition, the cost of professionally fitted hearing aids averages over $5,000 out-of-pocket costs for a pair because Medicare or private insurance plans don't typically cover the devices. However, FDA has established that OTC hearing aids are safe and effective for adults with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss and are regulated as medical devices by FDA. In addition, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, as many as 30 million adults in the United States currently have some degree of hearing loss and would benefit from using hearing aids. The FDA ruling was a game changer for InnerScope since its iHEAR, and HearingAssist brands of OTC hearing aids have the same type of technology and features as hearing aids sold and fit by hearing healthcare professionals at an average saving of $3,000 to $4,000 per pair. Additionally, InnerScope's iHEAR and HearingAssist OTC hearing aids are designed for consumers with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss with many different models that feature Bluetooth App-Controlled and Full-Streaming for Hands-Free Phone Calling and Listening to Music and/or Podcasts. "We are proud to have our "Hearing Made Easy" ad campaign featured in the Official NFL Super Bowl LVII Commemorative Souvenir Game Program, said Matthew Moore, President and CEO of InnerScope Hearing Technologies. "Forbes has listed the Super Bowl as "the world's most valuable sporting event brand. The Official Super Bowl LVII Game Program is simply the most valuable, content-rich magazine in all sports. In addition, we believe InnerScope's iHEAR and HearingAssist OTC Hearing Aid brands associated with the Super Bowl brand and our "Hearing Made Easy" campaign print ad will provide awareness to millions of people that need hearing aids but, up until now, could never afford them."

Alan Schneider Celebrates 15 Years as Owner of Minuteman Press Franchise in Northvale, NJ

Minuteman Press International Inc

The Minuteman Press franchise in Northvale, NJ has been operating for over 40 years. Alan Schneider and his wife Nadine are celebrating 15 years as owners and share their insights and reflections. Minuteman Press in Northvale, NJ is located at 202 Livingston Street, Northvale, NJ 07647. Congrats on 15 years! What does this milestone mean to you and what are the keys to your success and longevity? Nadine and Alan: “This is a tremendous milestone for us. Although we have hit this milestone in our tenure, the shop has been in business for over 40 years in this community. We are well known and very involved in the town. For years, people were saying the printing industry was dying. Then the pandemic hit and I think everyone feared a little bit for the future. However, I have to say that I never expected the bounce back from the pandemic to be such a boon for business. I think people realized that community is important, supporting local business is important, and although online marketing has a place, it’s not the only game in town. Print is still king. The keys to our success and longevity are: providing a warm and friendly place to do business; being knowledgeable about our products and services; letting our clients know that their success is important to us and we are here to help them; caring about our clients as people—not just as customers; and, most importantly, reliability and integrity.” What are some of the key ways you’ve grown your business? Nadine and Alan: “Believe it or not, the pandemic was a blessing for our business. It forced us to take critical look at how we were operating. We took a hard look at our numbers, and strategized on what we could do better in both operations and marketing. On the operational side, we cut out some of the fat and streamlined things where needed.” Alan: “My wife, Nadine, has an MBA in marketing and has owned a marketing and graphic design business for 15+ years. She joined me in our Northvale, NJ location and is providing all the graphic design services. Not only was this a strategic financial/operational move, it was the best marketing move we could have made. We are now truly a marketing, design and printing company – a one-stop shop!” Nadine and Alan: “Our clients are provided with a free consultation on the best ways to market their business. We do the strategy, design and printing. When the clients see the results, they come back for additional products and services—and they tell their friends! The savings we realized from our reduction in payroll was also reinvested in the business by increasing our participation in the SEO/Internet marketing program. We are starting to see an uptick in our internet leads! A couple of other cool things… Last year, we expanded our marketing strategy by promoting ourselves as a local family business. Our holiday cards now feature our family photo – myself, Nadine, and our 4 grown children. The theme is, Family is everything. We appreciate you being part of ours. I can’t tell you how many compliments we received on that card. People feel like they know our family, and always ask how our kids are doing. This year, we will be planning a marketing program to celebrate my birthday on October 26 th. Why? Because we found out that it’s also National Printing Day! We are going to have a lot of fun with that. We also do a lot of in-person networking by being active in our home and business communities. We are BNI members and directors, are involved with many not-for-profits, serve on the boards of the local Chambers of Commerce, and are Auxiliary Police Officers in our hometown. We are always visible helping the community in whatever way we can.” What are your high-demand products and services? Nadine and Alan: “We do a ton of direct mail, particularly EDDM. Although the program has been around for years, it’s really been gaining traction since the pandemic. Once our clients see how well direct mail works for them, they either expand their reach or frequency…or both. We help them build their customer lists as a result of their EDDM efforts, then assist them with targeted direct mail programs to these new customers. We are proud to say that many of our clients credit us with helping them build their businesses through direct mail. They refer to us as the direct mail experts! We also began heavily promoting branded apparel. It’s featured in the front of our store, and we make a point of mentioning it to our clients when they come into the shop. Once we learn about their business, we suggest what types of apparel and promotional items they may want to consider to boost their brand awareness.” What are your key growth areas? Nadine and Alan: “Again, direct mail and apparel are huge for us. Design as well. Our previous graphic designer was more of a layout/production person. Nadine is a true creative. Everything we do for a client now has a marketing strategy behind it, and a creative, eye-catching design. Clients who come in with their ideas are truly blown away by how we bring their visions to life. One successful campaign for a client usually snowballs into more business—and more referrals! But our true measure of success is knowing how we are helping our clients grow their businesses.” How would you best describe your community? Nadine and Alan: “Northvale, NJ is one square mile in area, right on the New York State border. The community is comprised of mostly residential homes, a small downtown with shopping and a handful of light industrial/manufacturing. Since it’s a small-town area, we focus on serving the local trades, retail stores, restaurants, professional services and industrial businesses. We have also built a client list outside of our small regional area by creating relationships with professionals that can provide us with ongoing business.” Why do you think printing remains so vital to businesses today? What are the benefits of print? Nadine and Alan: “Several years ago, email marketing became extremely popular because it was free. Today, in-boxes are flooded with messages that are deleted before they are even opened. A wasted marketing effort, even though it is ‘free.’ With print, your message is tangible. A direct mail piece in someone’s mailbox is handled – even if it is eventually discarded. Someone saw it, and handled it. Print is the ultimate conversation-starter. Hand someone a brochure, mail them a postcard, or even embroider your company name on your polo – and you are now visible to them. The most successful businesses rely on print for the majority of their marketing, so it is definitely here to stay.” What was your background before franchising? Alan: “I owned a food distribution company prior to owning a Minuteman Press. I wanted something new, but I still wanted to be a business owner. I chose Minuteman Press because of the company’s reputation for training and support of its franchisees. Also, printing is a consumable business which means repeat business.” What has the support from Minuteman Press International been like for you? Nadine and Alan: “Pick up the phone, send an email, and someone is there to help. The conventions are invaluable. We always come back learning something new, whether it’s from corporate or fellow owners. We look forward to seeing everyone, and meeting new people. It’s like a family reunion! We’ve also come back with new vendors to try which really had an impact on our business.” What are the biggest rewards of owning your business? Nadine and Alan: “Being an integral part of other people’s businesses and helping them achieve their goals. Also, being part of the community.” What advice would you give to others? Nadine and Alan: “Be professional and be persistent!” Minuteman Press in Northvale, NJ is located at 202 Livingston Street, Northvale, NJ 07647.
