Kansas City Same Day Care Packages Debut

We like this story because it features the wares or local creators and craftspeople.

All of this stuff might be on the pricey side but offers a great gift that the middle-class might bestow upon their broke-ass friends during harsh times. 

Here's the pitch . . .

Knowing that a partnership with one of Kansas City’s most well-known marketplaces would complement afloat’s mission, the afloat team reached out to Made in KC — a curator and retailer of Kansas City-made products with shops, cafes and marketplaces across the metro.

Made in KC curated six bundles and care packages featuring products for an evening of barbeque or day of self-care. The packages range from $50 to $98 and are now available on the afloat app.

“The bundles they’ve created exclusively for afloat from local curators make the gifts extra meaningful,” afloat CEO Sarah-Allen Preston said. “… We definitely see this as a strategic partnership. We hope to be the avenue where KC locals send gifts — or out-of-towners send gifts to locals — when they can’t make it to the store but want to make a gift meaningful and local, as well as convenient.”
