Winter CAUSEBOX Unboxing and Review

December 23, 2016·

YOU GUYS! My Winter CAUSEBOX came and I RAN to the front porch to get it because I just knew it was going to be a good one… and boy oh boy was I right. The CAUSEBOX team outdid themselves with this season’s box and I can’t wait to show you what I got!

I have officially been getting CAUSEBOX for a whole year and it is probably my favorite subscription box because every. single. item. inside spreads dignity across the globe, provides meaningful work and opportunity for people, and truly shows me the value of purchasing with purpose!

I had Matt Richardson, the founder of CAUSEBOX, on my podcast a few weeks ago… you REALLY need to listen to this episode because he is AWESOME and his stories are so cool. You will LOVE HIM!

Anyway… here’s what came in this Winter CAUSEBOX! Now, if you want to try CAUSEBOX for yourself, use the code “stillbeingmolly” for $10 off your first box!

Parker Clay – Handmade Leather Clutch – $48 retail value

Exclusive premium leather clutch, handmade in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia — each clutch is a symbol of resilience, as they were constructed during a time of political turmoil in Ethiopia, and the artisan group rose above incredible challenges to bring this beautiful piece to life.

If you’ve been around this blog for awhile, you know how much I love Krochet Kids, so you KNOW that this an exciting piece to have in the box. Now to decide what I’m going to use the gift certificate to buy… 🙂

This whole box has a retail value of a whopping $219!!!!!!! If you pay annually, the box is $49 a quarter, if you pay quarterly, the box is $54.95 a quarter. And if you use my $10 off code (stillbeingmolly) it is even more affordable. YOU GUYS. That is insane!

Like I said, CAUSEBOX really outdid themselves this time and I love EVERYTHING in this box! For real!
