Orbitkey is Here to Lend a Helping Hand

|May 14|magazine13 min read

MELBOURNE, Australia, May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Melbourne-based organisation brand Orbitkey has utilised their product design expertise to create a Sanitiser Holder. They are giving away 500 units to those on the front line, and donating 100% of profits to charities and organisations battling COVID-19 around the world.

This is part of Orbitkey's Helping Hands Initiative to give back and support the wider community by creating yet another clever and thoughtful product that will help us in our daily lives.

The Sanitiser Holder started with a simple idea out of sheer necessity for a safer and convenient way to disinfect your hands. Ever since the outbreak, there has been significant emphasis placed on personal hygiene, and using hand sanitiser has become an integral part of everyone's routine.

With the Sanitiser Holder, you can keep your sanitiser close and easily accessible, so that you can clean your hands frequently and conveniently. Available in three designs - Lanyard, Clip and Retractor - you no longer need to rummage through your pockets or bags for your hand sanitiser and risk spreading germs to your other belongings.

"We are still a small company without deep pockets, but what we do have is a young and dynamic team with a passion for design and organisation, so this is our way of helping our community – by designing something to hopefully reduce the spread of germs", said Orbitkey co-founder, Rex Kuo. "We are giving away our design and also donating all profits to causes that need support from their community right now – to help those impacted by COVID-19 in one way or another."

About The Orbitkey Helping Hands Initiative

To kick off the launch of the Sanitiser Holder on 12 May 2020 at 10am AEST, Orbitkey is giving away 500 units to essential workers*. But this is where they need your help to get them in the hands of those who need it most. If you have family or friends who are working on the front line, please tag them in Orbitkey's Instagram post or share the link to the sign up form so they can apply.

*Those who come into direct contact with the general public – such as healthcare professionals, police officers, postal workers, supermarket, restaurant or retail staff, etc. (Only open to Australia, New Zealand and the United States)

The first 500 applicants to qualify will receive one Retractable Sanitiser Holder with a refillable bottle (including liquid hand sanitiser for those within Australia).
