HOLLISTER, CA (February 2012) – The word on CastCoverZ!™ is spreading like wildfire, and the blaze gained momentum on January 15, 2012, when CCZ! got a trot down the “catwalk” on the local CBS morning news and entertainment show Good Day Sacramento. CastCoverZ! owner and founder Annette Giacomazzi had the good sense to ship a CastCoverZ! Care Package to one of the TV program’s reporters, Melissa Cabral, when the reporter went on the air one day sporting a cast. Cabral was so enamored with the products she received that the show decided to put out a “Cast”ing Call to viewers who were wearing casts, to come on the show and get outfitted with various CastCoverZ! goods and show them off in a fashion show of sorts, a segment which has made its way to YouTube already!
The fashion show clip starts off with Cabral, wearing her Armz! cast cover, interviewing two of the models: Kacie, who was sporting a Tubez! cover following a surgery to repair a ligament in her knee as a result of a soccer injury; and Brittany, who must endure wearing an orthotic boot to protect a chipped bone in her foot incurred after a spill she took in a “bounce house” while not following proper safety practices, was donning a zebra-striped Bootz! cover. The two were clearly in good spirits as a result of their colorful and functional cast covers, despite having to hobble about. Also featured in the Good Day Sacramento “Break Room” fashion show were a variety of Armz! and Handz! cast covers; also, the “models” received CastCoverZ! T-shirts anointing them as members of the “Broken Bones Club.”
Everyone had a great time on the show, and the models were all very happy with their new cast covers and enjoyed showing them off, proving once again that CastCoverZ! products are not only functional and useful, but also possess the magical power to lift the spirits of anyone—whether a kid, a teenager, or an adult—who must endure the burden of wearing a cast to heal a broken limb.
