Mahalo Frontline

April 30 2020


Overnight the world changed.  Shops shut down.  Beaches closed.  The uncertainty of it all forced us to slow down and reflect.  We didn’t know what to expect next.
All of this was happening when we started receiving inquiries from people working the frontline.  They needed bags that were easy to clean.  Our whole mission is to Share the ALOHA.
We were given the opportunity to Share the ALOHA in a special way.  We are lucky enough to be able to support frontline workers by gifting over 5,000 bags to individual nurses, doctors, and first responders across the country.  
We are working out of our house again, getting back to our roots, and we are honored to be able to help in a small way at this time.  Thank you to the Frontline for all that you are doing!  Thank you to all of our customers because you are the reason we are able to do this.  And thank you to our team for helping us make it happen.

“I love the fact you can wipe it down. A lot of the nurses have to bring extra clothes and toiletries because when you work the Covid unit you have to change and shower.”

“I have a tote that I use for all my work gear and snacks for my long shift. Love that I can wipe the bag down and safely bring it back home.”

“I recently purchased a couple of ALOHA pouches for my sister who is an ER nurse in San Francisco. She was overjoyed to receive them because it is so easy for her to wipe them down at the end of her shift. She is able to store her important items in her pouches while she is working. She would give it 10 stars!! Thank you Aloha Collection!!!”

“Wow, thank you so much. It will be so nice to have bags that we can actually wipe down when leaving the hospital. So great to have your support in all this!”

    Thank you for sending out bags to the frontline. I am absolutely in love with my Aloha Collection bag. I love that I can wash them in the washer and allow them to air dry. They are super cute and put a smile on my face. There are not enough words to say Mahalo! I will be purchasing more for my friends and family!! I hope that you are all safe!

    Thank you for doing this! I was lucky enough to be among those to receive a free bag, and I also purchased one with the discount. I love them! I told all my coworkers about it and I get lots of compliments on my Limoncello bag at work. I am a NICU nurse, and we are very aware of infection prevention measures, as you might expect. We are allotted a small wipeable bag to keep our pens and other items handy while out on the unit, and your mid pouch is perfect! I love that it’s wipeable, durable, and yet lightweight and flexible!! And so cute! Thank you!

    WOW! How awesome it is for those nurses to receive the gift of ALOHA. I was wondering if anyone had ever spoken about the nurses in the ICU at Tripler Army Medical Center? We are doing some really innovative things and have some really great warriors working frontline in ICU and in the ER. Did you know one of our nurses is nurse of the year for the entire military medical system? (and she is a civilian! She was up against all nurses in the U.S., territories and foreign countries! Pretty amazing, huh?) Thank you for honoring nurses, I am glad to see it.

    Omg, thank you so much Aloha Collection team! I’m a pharmacist intern and truly appreciate the wonderful gift! So easy to take to work and clean after my shift. Thank you for thinking of us! <3 Aloha!

    Thank you for all of your support during these times of uncertainty and constant change. I am one of the only male mother baby nurses in my hospital and I am so proud to make a difference in what I do everyday I go to work.

    First of all I would like to say thank you for your generous donation to us frontline workers. I am a nurse at Kiras Joel health center. Working In the Hasidic community has been extremely hard during Covid. We have been open, particularly our department throughout this pandemic, yet we have been denied various things including our own food deliveries from
    Our regularly used restaurants just because of where and who we work with. We nurses risk our life’s every day and we do it with love, regardless of our patients race, religion or beliefs. I believe this would be such an amazing and uplifting give to our team.
    Thank you 😊

    Our team in the largest hospital on Long Island (Metropolitan NY) continues to rise to the ever changing needs of our patient population. They work with skill, compassion and love for patients and their families. Couldn’t be prouder to work with such wonderful people.

  • Cyn: May 22, 2020

    I’m so proud of our nursing team… we have gone through so much during this crazy time and not always were we put together. As a nurse, we often rely on our coworkers to ride with us and overcome all drama thrown at us but unfortunately, we were misplaced often to help others. Though we are always willing to help our fellow health care providers, it was sometimes difficult to go through tough times alone. I’ve learned that we are strong and resilient. My team is amazing!

  • Katie RN MSN: May 22, 2020

    Thank you so much! I got one of the bags and it’s great to know I can carry stuff to and from work safely! It’s awesome to have a bag I can just wipe down!

  • Karen Petty: May 22, 2020

    Thank you for all you are doing for the frontline workers. I’m a flight nurse in San Diego. I am so excited that I purchased an Aloha bag. I was lucky to get a discount of 50% I have a family home in Hawaii and can’t wait go support my friends and family there. I’ve always loved your bags, but this is the first time I’ve purchased one. I’m so excited that I can wipe it down. I will continue to purchase your bags for life now.
    ❤️ Aloha 🌈
