International Blessings, who kindly sent me this Box of Blessings to review, states that their mission is to empower 3rd world artisans by selling and promoting their handmade products, which then helps to create sustainable livelihoods and eliminate poverty around the world. Each Box of Blessings will have 3-4 pieces of jewelry or other handcrafted products made by impoverished people around the world.
There will also be information about the items (where they came from, who made them, how they are changing lives, etc) and information about the poverty fighting cause that will receive the 10% donation that month. The January cause is “Compassion International” which you can read more about here.
Box of Blessings ships via USPS during the first week of the month and are only available to those in the US.
Whatever was in this box was quite bright! I wouldn’t wait to see what it was!
Box of Blessings includes information cards about each item in the box along with a card about the partner this month. Here is what was included in the January 2015 Box of Blessings:
~Woven Earrings w/ Dangles (Peru): I absolutely love the colors of these, but the dangle factor isn’t for me. I think it’s just that I am not used to them.
~Free Spirit Scarf (Ecuador): So fun and so bright! It’s got me thinking of summer and warm weather which sounds really good in this weather.
~Beach Bracelet (Peru): This bracelet is made from acai seeds and dyed seashell chips. Totally cool and totally wearable. I love it.
I didn’t do a cost breakdown on this box, but it breaks down to about $10 per item which isn’t too bad at all! These were all fun and unexpected and I am happy with this one!
