I love supporting female founders, and I love it even more, when they can use their expertise and resources during COVID-19 to give back to others.

SHIPSI did just that by providing an all-in-one delivery technology platform for retailers, today announced that it had delivered over 1 million diapers to local families in need over the last month.

Partnering with the non-profit organizations Baby2Baby and LiftCommunities.org, SHIPSI has utilized drivers from their nationwide network of delivery partners to get essential supplies such as diapers, food packs, and hygiene kits to those struggling during the coronavirus pandemic. These drivers, who usually deliver everything from balloons to three-piece suits to cookie dough for retail clients across the country, have now been put to a new task: helping their communities.

“I feel honored to be able to use our platform and delivery network to support families and organizations in need,” states SHIPSI CEO, Chelsie Lee. “We’re incredibly grateful to each individual involved, whether through their time or a donation, as well as our delivery partners whose willingness has helped make this all happen. Given the current environment, we want to support everyone we can, not just our retail clients. We’re all in this together.”

In partnership with Baby2Baby and LiftCommunities.org, SHIPSI continues to raise funds via their GoFundMe page to support the drivers making the deliveries.

In full disclosure, I am an Investor and an Advisor to SHIPSI, and from the second I met Chelsie Lee (CEO, and Co-Founder) I knew she was something special and it’s moments like this — I know I am backing the right company with the best team.

Proud to be SHIPSI’S biggest fan!
