Marines Helping Marines has formulated an outstanding lip balm, Medic’s Choice exclusively for the Marine Corps League. Medic’s Choice is made from all natural ingredients including sun screen. This all natural formula lasts longer. It protects, heals and moisturizes lips better than any product on the market ……...…..

“This is a fantastic program, every detachment should get involved. Not only did we show a one day profit of $700.00 but it is a great recruitment tool. The Medic’s Choice lip balm display is great advertising for our Marine Corps League which has already helped sign up new members.”

Art Blenk of the Grand Strand detachment

“We showed a profit of over $900.00 in our first weekend. The people who are using Medic’s Choice lip balm have come back and bought more saying it is the best lip balm they have ever used.”

Taro Thomas of Shorecliff Golf Course.

“Since putting in a Medic’s Choice lip balm display our sales have tripled. In fact we don’t carry any other brand. Our golfers tell me it really works because they only have to apply Medic’s Choice once during a round of golf, where with other brands they would have to reapply it several times.”


Lip balm is a $6 billion per year industry and all businesses rely on some military personal as customers. Your detachment has three ways to raise funds for local projects:

  • Wholesale to Retailer: Jars are sold by MCL members to a business at wholesale prices.
  • Restock Retailer: Refilling the displays gives you a constant flow of funds and provides an excellent opportunity build relationships.
  • Direct Sales: Offer Medic’s Choice at your fundraisers! Just put out a display with a donation jar and you will be surprised on how many $5, $10 even $20 bills you will get!


Medic’s Choice contains NO harmful ingredients commonly found in cheaper, petroleum based products like most versions of Chap Stick which have been banned in the European Union due to a strong link to some cancers.

Medic’s Choice

Medic's Choice Lip Balm is 100% Natural with NO additives, preservatives, or harmful petroleum based products.
