Happy Pak is a Carmel-based small business featuring hassle-free clever gift giving to celebrate special moments and ease life’s challenges. Karen Melbert and Karen Lafnitzegger, founders and co-owners of Happy Pak joined us today to share more about their company. They launched their Random Acts of Kindness (RAK Pak) program in August 2020 in an effort to deliver a little happiness to special unsung people in the community.
How the program works:
Each month per a theme (October 2020 is unsung Oncology Support Staff), friends of Happy Pak are invited to nominate an awesome Central Indiana human who meets one or all of the following:
- Fits the month’s theme
- Works hard behind the scenes to make a positive difference in the community
- Goes above and beyond the call of duty
- Puts others first
- Well-deserving of a giant thank you, high-five or hug
Monthly, a lucky nominee is randomly selected by the Happy Pak team and a special RAK Pak, filled with gifts and goodies packaged just for the recipient, is delivered on a Fab Friday within the month.
Happy Pak’s motto is to “Bring on the happy.” It’s perfect for busy individuals.
Special gift giving has always been a natural instinct for owners and long-time friends, Karen Melbert and Karen Lafnitzegger, but the two took the entrepreneurial leap after an ah-ha moment when Melbert’s care packages to her college-age daughters started getting rave reviews.
Happy Pak offers ready-made personalized paks featuring artisan products. They can customize any pak for customers or design a pak from scratch as well. Happy Pak also has the ability to do branded corporate paks.
Current offerings include paks for Halloween, Fall, holiday, college students, men, women, families & more. They always try to include a bit of humor in each pak and love to make recipients laugh and smile.
