Thank you for continuing to do this segment. I was going to write to you and ask if you could do this call-in more than once a year. Earlier this year I contacted Steve Gips about doing a banner on your site.
I am the inventor of the Cord Cocoon. The Cord Cocoon is an accessory designed to neatly and conveniently store the cords for most hand-held electronic devices (such as cell phones, tablets, e-games). www.cordcocoon.com.
I only introduce it at a few fundraising event and the reaction has been tremendous. 4 out 5 people who see and use the Cord Cocoon like the product and idea. I would like to offer a special 2 for 1 to first 1000 listeners who purchase from website and mentioned the Brian Lehrer show.
The idea for the Cord Cocoon started when we were packing for a family vacation and I realized we had all these cords for our portable electronic devices that needed to be labeled and packed. I searched all over the house for wire ties or rubber bands in order to organize the cords. I felt there had to be a better way to store these cords.
P.S. 25% of all sales will go to local charities.
