Made in Vancouver is a collaboration between Vancity and Daily Hive. Together, we’re turning the spotlight onto local businesses, organizations, and individuals who are helping to create a healthy local economy.

Filled with the essentials, this new emergency kit ensures you have everything you need in one place.

OH SH!T KITS  is a ready-to-go bag to bring you peace of mind for any event, circumstance, or emergency.

Vancity has been supporting people in our communities since 1946, like local entrepreneurs. As part of our Made in Vancouver series spotlighting local businesses, we talked to Vineeta Minhas, founder of OH SH!T KITS, about how you can use the emergency kit.

The kits come in three sizes: small, medium, and large.

“The inside of your bag/purse is a hallowed space, reserved only for the essentials you need, so sizing is critical to us,” said Minhas. 

“Each bag contains a variety of high-quality, branded items that meet the customer’s everyday needs.”

Those items include Advil, a charging cable, After Bite, dry shampoo, eye drops, energy drinks, mints, pens, wipes, Vaseline, and much more.

What you get in the bag depends on the size. You can see more of the specifics here.

“Our little bags of magic are a simple yet obvious innovation. What they bring to the table is integrity, professionalism and a certain sense of fearlessness in those who possess or even give the gift of an Oh Sh!t Kit,” she said.

Minhas is an events professional with over 15 years of experience, and the Oh Sh!t Kit was something she realized would come in handy.

“It is something people realize they need once they have it. Once they have it, they realize they can never live without it. We want people to be prepared and feel comfortable in any situation,” she said. 

Whether it be for a professional event, a friend or family member’s wedding, a trip, or just to put in your purse or car — check out the website to see when one would come in handy for you.
