When we think of helping our fellow man or woman in their hour of greatest need, it’s not often that hygiene is the first idea that pops in our heads. Yet, Convenience Kits International regularly partners with nonprofits to meet that very need. You see, there is enough evidence to suggest that the body is the armature of the self. That is, it is the physical self around which the psychological self is formed. When we look good, we feel good. When we shower at the start of what we know to be a challenging day, we feel more ready for what is ahead of us. When an individual who struggles with homelessness gets that shower and a fresh haircut, a smile that has been gone for far too long returns. If i can borrow a few minutes of your time, I’d like to share with you our vision to change the world one fresh and clean human at a time.
America is a resilient nation and we here at Convenience Kits International fully believe that the indomitable American spirit will see our nation through the current global pandemic. Certainly, the news may look a little bleak right now. However, we as a nation have been here before we can all be thankful that at least this time, we do so in an age where the science of good hygiene is clear and conclusive. Personally, we think people should have always been washing their hands, but hey, at least people are doing so now.
To be clear, maintaining proper hygiene during summer travels was always important. We all know that feeling of finding the one gas station bathroom during a summer road trip and the conditions are less than sanitary. You would complain to the store employee, but he doesn’t look too much like he cares. So you do your best to hover and dance around the dirty bathroom to accomplish your urgent mission. As you gear up for your summer travels this year, you will be doing so in an environment where proper hygiene means more than ever in the wake of COVID-19. Cancelling the summer travels is not an option as we are born to explore. However, with the proper precautions you can do safely and in that regard, we are here to help.
Just to be clear, we here at Convenience Kits International have always believed that personal hygiene was a very important matter. Not to brag, but we’ve been telling people to wash their hands and stay clean long before the governments of the world weighed in on the matter. The body is the armature of the self, and when you have the confidence that good hygiene brings, it almost seems like the world is yours to conquer.
If you are part of the great American workforce who knows how to get down and dirty to earn a living, then we salute you. More than salute you, we want to provide you with the modern and innovative hygiene kit solution you need to keep on leading the way and smelling fresh. Just because you get dirty for a living doesn’t mean you have to stay dirty. Yes, your job requires long hours, a little elbow grease, and a healthy amount of sweat. For many of you, this job is conducted during long stretches away from home and all the amenities we’ve grown accustomed to using. So whatever solution you choose has to be mobile, comprehensive, and most importantly, affordable.
The start of a new year always brings a bout of inspirational changes – from newly healthy dieters to gym goers, resolutions run amok. Yet every year, it always seems that once we get busy, back into our routines and away from the waist-gaining deliciousness of the lazy holidays spent at home with friends and family gain, we never actually live up to the resolutions we try to set.
We get back into our routines and often tell ourselves we’re too busy to achieve the things we once resolved we’d do. For many of us, this means we get into a habit of hibernating through the colder weather and shorter days. Whether you’ve already been an avid traveler or plan to become one in the decade to come, the truth is that there’s no time like the present to take that trip or go on that journey.
This holiday season, it is estimated that over 115 million Americans will travel for the Christmas season. This includes road trips to grandma’s house, family trips during the winter break and even holiday escapes to somewhere warm and tropical. Regardless of the destination, over 1/3rd of Americans will be heading out and the smart ones will remember this hygiene essential before they do. Gone are the days of trying to remember everyone’s toothbrush or deodorant. Families from sea to shining sea have come to embrace the convenient travel-ready hygiene kit that has it all. So let’s take a quick look at how families across America are saving time and money this holiday season.
Crunching leaves hit the ground as the chill in the air signals the approach of colder days. Bathing suits are swapped out for pashmina scarves and leather boots. As we put away the candy corn and dust off the cobwebs of Halloween, November marks a perfect time for traveling with friends, family and loved ones. It’s shoulder season, which means prices won’t be as expensive as they will be after Thanksgiving kick starts the holiday season and with it, higher flight prices across the US and overseas.
So why not take some time off before the rush of the holidays begins and the Christmas markets across Europe cause airfare prices to soar? Get in your car, or head to the nearest airport, and try one of these amazingly quaint and less-explored favorite fall destinations.
As the leaves start to change colors and a winter chill blows in from the North, American families from sea to shining sea are gearing up for the great American road trip this fall. It might be driving through New England to see the best of fall colors or simply packing up to spend Thanksgiving at Grandma’s house, but millions of Americans will soon be hitting the road and travel has never been easier. Granted, this is in large part due to portable DVD players and devices that keep kids from fighting in the back seat. However, it is also because packing up your family’s hygiene essentials is a breeze with custom convenience travel kits. The road awaits you this fall and now you’ll have everything you need to keep the family smelling fresh along the way.
Every year throughout corporate America, gifts are given to employees to show appreciation. From coffee mugs to golf towels, these gifts more often than not are a mere duplicate of what someone already owns. There is no practical value in one more coffee mug or one more golf towel. However, there is a great deal of practical value in gifting pre-packaged hygiene kits that are sure to find some use during the next holiday or travel for work. Let’s just take this Unisex Hygiene Kit for example.
For many children, the back-to-school shopping craze is an opportunity to purchase fresh clothes, sport new haircuts and if you are lucky enough, a new pair of sneakers. The body is the armature of the self and when children feel confident through personal appearance it often translates to other aspects of life. Meanwhile, a great number of children from sea to shining sea return to school with no such feeling. For families living in impoverished communities, even the basic necessities of hygiene are often overlooked. The result is a child ashamed to go to school and growing up far from confident. Fortunately, teachers and administrators around the nation have taken notice and are taking action. Charities and schools are giving the gift of confidence through the power of prepackaged hygiene kits to children in need. A simple and affordable act of compassion that pays off in a big way in the lives of children.
Summer time temperatures and longer days of sunlight can make now as good a time as any to take that dream Euro Trip. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean has never been cheaper, and as a result, island hopping in Greece or pub crawling in Germany are suddenly very realistic ways to spend a week (or even just a weekend for those East Coasters) off from work. To cut costs even more, you can travel on their budget airlines without checking a bag. Carriers like Ryan Air often offer international flights across Europe for 7€, and even for the last minute, spontaneous travelers among us, you can find flight prices as cheap as trains and busses that’ll shorten your journey by half the time (although I’d still recommend cheap busses through companies like Flix Bus, as its way better for the environment).
The 4th of July is just around the corner, and especially since this year it falls on a Wednesday, for most of you, that means you’re getting a nice long weekend! (Bonus points if you took off work for the whole week - how can we get your job?)
If you’re taking a road trip this weekend, or later on this summer, here are 8 must-have items that you can’t forget to bring along with you!
Life can be hard and when natural disasters, financial hardship, or traumatic experiences strike, life can be even harder. Convenience Kits International is proud to partner with nonprofits, religious, and disaster relief organizations around the world to preserve human dignity during the most trying times with good hygiene. To many, a toothbrush and soap might seem like the last thing on a person’s mind when they are facing disaster or chronic homelessness. Yet, the body is the armature of the self and maintaining one’s sense of self worth when all seems hopeless can be the catalyst for a new future. Every human being, regardless of what hardships they face deserve to feel valued. The Good Work partnership offers affordable solutions to and compassionate outreach with pre-packaged hygiene kits ready to ship in bulk at a moment’s notice. Join with us today and help us support the Good Work, that you do everyday.
Most people often think of the holiday season as the biggest “family time” (and it can be, considering it’s usually the only time you’ll see Cousin Jimmy who lives on the other side of the country). But right now is probably the best time to grab your whole gang and get in the car (or hop on a plane) for a long weekend adventure. You'll beat the crowds - and the prices - plus there are plenty of short-term get-aways to be had just before the craze of summer sets in and everyone’s out from school.
