Campaign Designed to Knock Your Socks Off with Compassionate Compression Kits

NEW YORK (NOVEMBER 27, 2018) -- Connexient announced today a #GivingTuesday partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health.  On Tuesday, November 27, Connexient will deliver over 1,000 compassionate compression kits to patients being treated at Hackensack University Medical Center. The kits include a pair of stylish compression socks, an eye mask and ear plugs packaged in a clear zippered bag.  Compression socks increase circulation, decrease swelling and reduce the risk of blood clots.

Sparta; Vice President Hospitality Services at Hackensack Meridian Health Kunle Modupe and Joe Motta, co-founder and President at Connexient.

“We wanted to do something meaningful for those who won’t be home for the holidays this year,” said Connexient co-founder and president, Joe Motta.  “By giving Hackensack patients compassionate compression kits, we’re hopefully providing comfort during their treatment and recovery.”

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by social media and collaboration. It falls after Black Friday and Cyber Monday and reminds us to get in the holiday spirit by helping our friends, families, colleagues and communities.  

“We are thrilled Connexient thought of us for this #GivingTuesday campaign,” said Peter Hughes, vice president of Strategic Partnerships at Hackensack Meridian Health.  “It’s a great gift for our patients and a nice way to engage our team members to help distribute the compassionate kits. This partnership knocks our socks off.”

Knock your socks off is a saying that can be traced back to 1856 when a newspaper described a flu remedy as defeating the common cold virus by knocking its socks off.  In more recent years, it became a positive phrase meaning that you were impressed or delightfully surprised by something.
