Giving the Gift of Health, Hygiene, and Hospitality with Kits of Kindness
A Basic Need That Goes Unmet
We wash our hair, keep our nails maintained, brush our teeth, apply deodorant, and arguably always have access to soap or at least hand sanitizer when we need it. In a world where the new normal has emphasized the importance of hygiene and hand washing, it is hard to fathom that some people still are physically unable to do so whenever they may need to.
Homeless and displaced people comprise a large segment of every community nationwide. Let that sink in for a moment. According to a report by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, there isn’t a single state in the entire country without at least 1,000 homeless persons, including both individuals and family groups of men, women, and children. That is a staggering statistic, and a horrifying number of people who don’t have access to a permanent shelter, let alone to essential personal hygiene products needed to stay healthy.
Bags in Bulk has been at the forefront of this crisis, and we are proud to be a premier source of bulk hygiene kits, serving communities nationwide and shipping supplies directly to their doorsteps.
There Are No Small Acts of Charity
Whether acting individually or as part of a nonprofit or community group, the bottom line is that there is no act too small that it doesn’t make a large impact. As the old adage says, helping one person may not change the world, but it may just change the world for that one person. When donating a gift of bulk hygiene kits, you’re ensuring that at least one person, one family, one shelter, or one community have been tremendously impacted. It was once famously stated that in order to change the world, you have to start one person at a time. The more people you help, the more worlds you’ve changed. It is amazing what just one act of kindness can do.
Start anywhere that there is a need, and rise to meet it. Put together a thank you set for your tireless local first responders, doctors, nurses, and healthcare providers who don’t always have time to go home between shifts. Assemble a natural disaster relief or homeless care package, and grab hygiene sets that provide full body care. We offer an extensive variety of wholesale hygiene products and kits that encompass everything from a simple toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, and body soap to complete backpack sets that include blankets, hygiene kits, rain ponchos, masks, socks, winter gloves, hats, and more.
There are even packs of feminine hygiene kits for homeless teen girls and women, which address the specific health needs not often met by the standard hygiene kits distributed to the less fortunate. These kits contain pads, liners, soaps, lotions, and other personal care items that are tailored to the health-specific needs of females everywhere. Plus, every BagsinBulk care set for men or women comes with 24 sealed, individualized travel packs, so any person who receives them has an easy way to transport them.
Can’t Have Community Without “Unity”
There are dozens of options and ways to offer the help needed to those who need it most. Staying clean and dry helps a person prevent illness, feel good about themselves, ace an interview and land the job needed to get back on their feet, and overall it promotes wellness in all aspects of their lives and community.
Best of all, there’s absolutely no easier way to start helping others than with a gift that shows you care. A donation of health and hygiene products can make a tremendous impact on the lives of men, women, teenagers, and even children, allowing them to focus on school, work, and more important things than the struggle of wondering how or where they might next wash their hands, change their clothes, and stay warm. Entire family groups can be easily supplied with the products they need to stay strong and healthy for months to come, and that in turn can empower entire communities, enriching the lives of all around them. Let’s work together in a show of unity in our own communities by supporting one another to ensure everyone stays healthy, happy, and safe.
