Angel (Kit for 1)
Compassion begins with YOU. Yes, we love helpers, but we also value self-care. So, please make sure you are safe before you help anyone else.
Once you know you're safe, and it's safe to go outside, grab your Angel kit and see who might need your assistance.
The Angel kit empowers you to be the compassionate helper we all hope to have near us if we are struggling in a challenging situation.
Offering the Angel kit as a gift is an act of compassion toward someone you know who lives alone or may be vulnerable. (It's extra nice if you personalize it by adding favorite treats or other items.)
OR, give an Angel kit to the woman you know who really loves to be a helper, the one who checks in with her family, friends, co-workers and neighbors whenever there's even a hint of a storm coming. She'll be equipped to do what she truly loves to do, and you can be happy knowing she's taking care of people because of your gift.
Whether you buy this Angel kit for yourself or someone you love, we thank you so much for ensuring your own safety, reaching out to others, and contributing to community relief efforts across the country.
Angel Kit Details:
There's a lot in the Angel elite emergency kit. Let's break it down.

All items are packed securely in our sturdy red backpack with plenty of pockets and compartments to keep things organized. Everything is protected in waterproof bags and neatly packed in the backpack for easy access.
Our kits are packed right here in the United States, and we offer free shipping within the continental U.S.
