Do you need a basic First Aid Kit?

To raise money for the Alabama Trailblaze Challenge, I will be selling travel/backpacking basic First Aid Kits. It’s all of those little things you wish you had with you at some point. Throw it in your purse, your car, and/or your backpack. It’s identical to what I carry on a regular basis and there’s room to include other items you need.

Each kit will contain the following:

1 pair plastic tweezers (TSA won’t take them)
2 Band Aids (individually sealed)
2 packets of Antibiotic ointment
2 packets of Ibuprofen
2 non stick sterile gauze pads (individually sealed)
2 safety pins (great for popping the rare blister among other things)
2 sterile butterfly bandages (individually sealed)
2 feet of Leukotape wrapped around a section of plastic straw (first aid tape on steroids and great for hot spots)
2 Pepto Bismol Pills (individually sealed)
1 Tick Key (hopefully it’s never needed)
2 Antiseptic Wipes (individually sealed)
2 sterile 3×3 gauze pads (individually sealed)

This is identical to what I carry whenever I’m in the woods (or traveling). If I need more than that, I should be coming off the trail or headed to the store and/or doctor.

I’m going to make 50 of these with a roughly 3.5″ by 2″ sticker (picture below) on the bag. Currently, I plan on using a quart Ziploc bag because it’s waterproof, light, and easy to find the contents. I’m ordering the supplies this week and will be selling them for $20.00.

Buy, share, or both!
If you are interested, let me know.  You can pay using PayPal or Venmo.  If you don’t live locally, I’ll mail for the cost of shipping (it shouldn’t be very much).
Thank you for your support.
