Project Description

Imagine if...everything you needed for baby was already waiting at your destination door. Skip packing diapers, wipes, and everything else you've been forced to drag through busy airports, subway stations, or jammed in the back of your car.

Lightly helps you feel at home, anywhere you go

 

How Does Lightly Work?

1. The minute you've secured accommodations, you're ready to book a Lightly Box! (Yes, that includes glamping sites, vacation rentals, or your in-laws house) 

2. Hop on our site - Click on 'Travel Lightly Now' - and share your plans. 

3. We will curate the perfect box for you. Feel free to add on a la carte products directly from our store - e.g. bug spray or sunscreen. (Learn More About Our Brands)  

4. Lightly boxes are always scheduled for delivery 1-2 days prior to your arrival date. No need to stress, we will be the neurotic parents tracking your packages. (Enjoy Free Shipping Worldwide) 

5. Leave your nursery at home. Arrive and Relax. You deserve it. 

COMING SOON: 'The Weekender' - Perfect for spontaneous mini trips!  

 

The Lightly Mission

We know how tough it is to travel with tiny humans (<4). That's why we've dedicated all our efforts into providing a better experience. Stop overpacking and stressing - we're here to help you get to your final destination without excess or hiccups. 

We are building a community and business rooted in providing authentic support. And ultimately give families the confidence to take more trips with their little ones through our sustainable travel service.

Lightly x Sustainability 

As we plan to explore the world with our children, it’s also our responsibility to teach them how to take care of it. When traveling Lightly - you ultimately reduce the weight carried on planes, trains, and automobiles. It's a simple eco-conscious step to help improve fuel efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint.  

1% of all funds raised will be donated to the GoodPlanet Foundation - We hope to help this incredible organization continue to create meaningful solutions that help reduce carbon emissions. Click on the link to learn more. 

Did You Know?

There were roughly 22.5 million ticketed passengers classified as infants pre-pandemic (not including lap infants). That data speaks specifically to air travel - the overall family travel market is around $150billion in the U.S. alone.

Our demographic is robust but grossly underserved.  The hospitality and travel industry have done very little to offer quality products, personalized amenities, or thoughtful services to lend families a helping hand. Bare minimum has to go. 

 

Meet The Founder

Dominique Olowolafe is a Black Mompreneur and avid traveler. She currently resides in LA with her husband and two toddlers. She earned her B.A. in communications from Cal Poly (SLO) and spent time as both a professional volleyball player and freelance wardrobe stylist before starting Lightly. Teaching prenatal yoga, champagne tastings, and devouring pizza are her guilty momma pleasures. 

How Can I Help?

We are raising $100k to help get us off the ground, develop our product line, and prepare to scale. Any contribution made is monumental. Thank you for believing in the future of travel and helping families explore the world, Lightly. 

E-Gift Cards are available for purchase and make great Baby Shower Gifts!
