Monday was a bad day. I had a big decision weighing heavy on my mind. We are leaving in a few days for a 5 week trip away from home. And my SUV decided to just die on me – as in call the tow truck die on me. After waiting for a tow truck and a rental car for 3 hours, I went home with a very large black cloud over my head. Very large.
Sitting on my desk was exactly what I needed to push those dark thoughts away. The Sevenly CAUSEBOX03 is filled with items of hope & inspiration…..making me realize that my “problems” are really so trivial. Take a look at what I mean……
One of my favorite items of mail that I look forward to receiving every quarter is my Sevenly CAUSEBOX. This beautiful blue box is filled with goodies that are unique, meaningful have have an amazing message of hope. More than your average makeup or dog-treat box, the CAUSEBOX serves a dual purpose. The items in the box are either hand-crafted by people around the world, employed to make difference or the items give money back to the organization they were created for. Based on a core belief that ”People Matter”, Sevenly commissions the creation of “cause art” to help celebrate the work of charitable partners.
By creating 7-day cause campaigns, customers can purchase this cause art and $7 of their purchase will go back to that cause. By doing this, Sevenly has raised over 4.3 million dollars and helped over 1,363,000 people.
What is the CAUSEBOX?
Sevenly has a new way of giving through the CAUSEBOX by Sevenly. It’s a subscription box filled with socially conscious lifestyle goods geared towards women. The box comes every quarter and is filled with $150+ worth of goodies from amazing companies who have goals to change the world. Sevenly gives back 7% of every CAUSEBOX to the charities reflected in the box. But even more than that, the items in the box help provide jobs, meals, education, clean water and more to people around the world.
What’s in the CAUSEBOX?
Here’s what was in my CAUSEBOX03:
Musana Bumba Necklace – retails for $36
This gorgeous handmade necklace comes in a barkcloth bag and I absolutely fell in love with the color. Musana is a nonprofit social enterprise that aims to break the cycle of poverty in Lugazi, Uganda by providing stable employment and educational opportunities for women.
Parker Clay Upcycled Wrap Bracelet– retails for $48
Parker Clay Headband – retails for $16
I was most excited to receive this beautiful bracelet and headband. The bracelet is made out of genuine Ethiopian leather and melted down bullets found in the Ethiopian countryside. This Parker Clay headband is handcrafted by a small team of artisans in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I can’t wait to see this adorable headband on my daughter! For every bracelet sold, Parker Clay sends on Ethiopian woman through a prostitution prevention training program.
Living On One Special Edition DVD – retails for $24
A documentary of university students who spent a summer in a rural Guatemala living on $1 per day, as they made a real effort to better understand the realities of poverty. Originally on YouTube, these films became viral. I can’t wait to sit down & watch it – it’s inspiring, I’m sure.
Sevenly Lemonade Print – retails for $24
How prophetic is this? It’s exactly what I needed to hear on Monday. However, my daughter took a real fancy to it. I am going to frame it to hang on her closet door. As she is entering high school and teenage angst, this is the perfect reminder.
KeepCup 6oz To-Go Cup – retails for $17
How cool is this?! KeepCup is the world’s first barista standard reusable coffee cup. It is made from non-toxic BPA and BPS-free polypropylene and features a splash proof seal. The perfect gift for your friends who frequent Starbucks, imagine how many paper cups one could save by just switching to this!
Love for Humanity Face Cream – retails for $58
Each month, I look forward to the unique jewelry that comes in the CAUSEBOX, but I was really excited to received this bottle of face cream this month. And GOOD ace cream – with active botanicals that preserve collagen and elastin. It’s organic, vegan, and cruelty free AND for every product they sell, Love For Humanity provides a meal to a child in need through Feed the Children.
Everly Hydrating Drink Mixes (sample)
My family loves to flavor their water – I’m pretty plain and it’s easier for me just to fill th eglass and go. However, these flavors sound pretty yummy. And I like the fact that Everly mixes are not filled with additives, preservatives, or fake coloring. Sounds a bit better to give my kids.
The CAUSEBOX03 has a total retail value of $223.
