As you look to make an impact in your community with a donation of care items to help individuals in your community, you might be wondering whether purchasing a kit from Poverty Impact Network is better than creating your own kit.
A curated care kit has many benefits to both you, the donor, and the recipient. We’ll help you understand the value that these curated kits offer so you can decide how to best use your funds.
Research on how much a person needs
We put a lot of thought into what we put in our care kits and how much. The goal is to offer dignity and hygiene for more than just one day to those who are struggling.
For example, our Foot Care Kit offers 6 moist towelettes and four bandages because we want to do more than just offer one minor moment of comfort for these individuals.
Likewise, the Feminine Hygiene Kit offers supplies for a woman for an entire menstrual cycle so she can have peace of mind and comfort during that time.
Option to ship directly to your choice of organization
When you assemble your own kits, you’ll need to box it up and ship it to a charity partner or coordinate with the charity for self-delivery of your donation. With our subscription service, we assemble the care kits and ship them directly to the charity partner, saving you time and eliminating the headache of heading to the post office.
This means that your donation makes it into the hands of those who need it faster and with less friction than it would have if you sent it yourself.
Efficient use of your funds
Spending your money to help others is a great thing to do. But when you do it, you want to know that you’re maximizing your investment. With Poverty Impact Network, we use our buying power to enable those living in poverty get the most benefit out of your donation.
For example, research shows that on average, a woman spends $13.25 a month on feminine hygiene products. To provide supplies for 12 women based on the national average, that’s $159.
The Poverty Impact Network Feminine Hygiene Kit provides supplies for 12 women in need for substantially less than half the national average. And, our kits also include ibuprofen packets to allow a woman to feel her best while on her period while remaining hygienic.
