After three years of sickness, my health was restored and we were taking our kids to the ocean for the first time. It was a huge celebration trip.
Cancun is booked … but wait: we have to pay how much to bring carry-on suitcases? Seriously? I did not want to spend money on baggage fees. I dug my heels in. I will not spend money on baggage fees. I will spend my money on what matters. I wanted to look my kids in the eye and tell them, “Whatever excursions you want to take, we will! We will go on the best adventures!” (After three years of too many excruciating no’s.)
I lost serious sleep plotting. I was determined. I’m searching for under-utilized space on an airplane. Ah-ha. A neck pillow. It’s perfect! And thus, the PillowPack was born. (in quilting cotton, ha!)
How PillowPack Began
I began sewing samples, perfecting the pocket, the fabric, the image. I was shocked that no one owned a patent on a zippered, packable neck pillow for travel storage and comfort. It is a gift from God placed in our laps…or more accurately: on our necks!
I knew in my heart I wanted to manufacture these in the USA, my beloved hometown Kansas City. I want to support our economy because I love where I live and I love my neighbors. I want us to prosper. I want to do my part.
But more than that: I want to create jobs of integrity for Survivors. My years of sickness grew mercy in me those hurting and stuck. I want to teach Survivors marketable job skills and free them to their creative potential. I want to empower women to protect their children with wages to live and thrive.
We are so very proud to bring you the PillowPack, so you can invest in adventures, not baggage fees. I can’t wait to see your travels!
