Alexis Ohanian’s Quarterly boxes always contain nifty treats he finds on his travels——and in his 8th box, that literally meant the 5 months he spent on the road promoting his book Without Their Permission.
The mailing delivered a satisfying dose of roadside Americana——as filtered through a modern startup lens. Take a look:
One peril of road trips is beverages getting cooked in the car. That problem is solved by the SpinChill at left——it turns a warm container into a cold one in seconds!
Next up were two more modern snacks: Tonya’s gluten-free cookies and Tealet Tea, which directly connects tea growers and tea drinkers.
Still hungry? Alexis also sent a gift certificate for a Waffle House waffle (it was in a Waffle House that he decided to become an entrepreneur). As he wrote, “it’s great for both the waffles and the epiphanies.”
Last up was a gift card for the innovative DonorsChoose, which will let you start a fundraiser for your hometown. Because isn’t that where any journey should end?
