Hi y'all! I'm excited to let you know that I found a few ways to make our seasonal boxes even better!
Have you been wondering what to do with your empty bonJOY boxes besides throwing them away? Here's something good you can do with them (because we love an awesome re-purposing of anything!) -- we're including a free shipping label from Give Back Box in every seasonal box this year. You can fill the boxes we send your goods in with items you don't need anymore and ship for free to charity. It's a fun and easy way to do a little extra good! All you have to do is place items you don't need in the empty box (up to 5bs), seal the box, then place the shipping label on top, and drop it off at your nearest UPS.
Second, I'd like to tell you about the new "Share the Goodness" feature. Every 2017 seasonal box will include a product that is meant for sharing or giving. Of course, you are more than welcome to keep it all for yourself (sure is tempting, we totally get it!). This new feature comes with hope that it be a fun tool you can use to spark more conversations with your crew to talk about the issues of exploitation and poverty as well as introduce them to ethically-made goods that have a mission. In short, the goal is to encourage your beautiful giving spirit and keep the #joyculture spreading!
We are also keeping our Give-Back Partnership program - at least $1 from every box we ship will go to our Give-Back Partner for the current quarter. Our Give-Back Partners are organizations doing phenomenal work to fight exploitation and care for survivors. Some of the organizations we've supported are International Justice Mission, A21, and REST - Real Escape from the Sex Trade.
We're excited to keep spreading joy with you and to see how we will make a bigger impact in our communities together!
