What They’re Saying
"I ordered a Chill Drill and it is on PLAYAWAY. I am so very happy and grateful that you still carry this item. I told my WWP counselor about it. This is my third one. I wore out one in Iraq and I wore out the second one in 2018. I do not have a smartphone or lots of e-stuff, so this is perfect for me and other low tech folks. We are still out here and thank you for supporting us."
