Sealed With A Kiss(R) Now Sending Camp Care Packages(R) to the Next Generation of Campers

ROCKVILLE, Md., July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Sealed With A Kiss(R) proudly kicks off its 23rd year of sending Super Camp Care Packages(R) to campers all over the USA. Sealed With A Kiss(R), the originator of Camp Care Packages(R), has successfully crossed over to the next generation of consumers; perhaps, the toughest challenge for any brand.

In 1984, founder and owner, Julie Winston, pioneered the idea of sending non-food care packages to children at sleep away camp.

"We literally search the world and select from thousands of the newest and trendiest toys, games, and fun items," explains Winston. "This makes for happy campers, as well as satisfied customers, who return every year."

Since opening its doors Sealed With A Kiss(R) has sent over 292,000 packages, with over 20,000 in 2005 alone. The company has successfully bridged the generations with former campers, now parents, sending their children camp care packages.

"I love SWAK. I received them every year I was at camp as a child and was the envy of my bunk. I am thrilled to be able to send a care package for my special camper." -J. Michel, Baton Rouge, LA "I received packages from y'all when I was at camp over 10 years ago. You guys are great! Keep up the good work." -M. McDaniel, Beaumont, TX "I received a SWAK camp care package when I was a camper nearly 20 years ago! I know you will make my daughter's birthday at camp a memorable day!!" -J. Mitchell, Leesville, LA

Besides sending terrific Camp Care Packages(R), Sealed With A Kiss(R) also creates gift packages for all ages and occasions such as newborns, children, adults, birthdays, speedy recovery, college, thinking of you, all holidays, and any special occasion can be customized to please. Restaurant, and Travel Packs(R) (to keep children busy on long trips) are also mainstays of the product line.

As the progenitor of its own industry and the lead innovator of camper gifts, Sealed With A Kiss(R) has received an enormous amount of media recognition, including being featured on or in Oprah, The Today Show, MSNBC, PM Magazine, USA Today, NY Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Jewish Week, Southern Living, Parent, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, McCalls, Business Week, and numerous other publications and television shows.

It's a "given" in software development - release schedules always slip. Requirements shift, developers underestimate timelines, and quality assurance (QA) finds unexpected defects. Another law of software development is that final release dates are often inflexible. If a market or a holiday shopping season defines your release date you understand how important it is to meet a fixed timeline. Once you've promised a release to the business at the end of the quarter, you are under pressure to de...

This will help you understand what steps you need to take today to mitigate release management risks that accompany software development at scale. These 100 people don't have to be in a single group and the systems maintained don't have to be limited to a single group. Also, note that the systems supported...
DevOps approaches within “Unicorns” vary significantly from the reality of DevOps in the enterprise.

Lacking the traditional fanfare associated with any technology that can use the word "container" or mention "Docker" in its press release, Ubuntu Core and its new Snappy system management scheme was introduced late last year. Since then, it's been gaining steam with Microsoft and Amazon and Google announcing support for the stripped-down version of the operating system. Ubuntu Core is what's being called a "micro-OS"; a stripped down, lean container-supporting machine that's becoming more pop...

Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises a...
Cloud computing seems destined to be the way enterprises will use information technology. The drastic cost reductions and impressive operational improvements make the transition an unstoppable trend.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immed...
There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that a...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
