UPDATE-Even though Christmas 2015 is behind us now, check out this information on Faithbox! It’s a great idea for next Christmas!
Faithbox is a new subscription box company that meets growing consumer demand by focusing on three unique components: growth, discovery and giving. Faithbox’s Christmas box is the perfect way to give a gift and give back at the same time because the products featured in the box are eco-friendly and from philanthropic-minded companies.
“There is no better time to give back than during the holiday season,” said Willie Morris, founder and CEO of Faithbox. “The Faithbox team kept this in mind while we curated the Christmas box by partnering with organizations who regularly give back as part of their business model.”
The regular December subscriber box features products around the theme of giving and will include Mitscoots socks, a handmade ornament from Anchored in Hope, Project 7 Cinnamon Chocolate mints, two World Hope donation gift cards – one to use and one to give away – and Everyday Faith devotional.
For every box purchased, including the special Christmas boxes, a hungry child is fed through a partnership with Rice Bowls. Already the partnership has provided 50,000 meals and is estimated to contribute 10,000 meals per month moving forward. In addition, many of the companies whose products are featured in Faithbox make one-to-one charitable contributions. This combination makes Faithbox inspirational, practical and philanthropic. Research shows consumers are becoming more educated and aware about the products and companies they support. A 2015 study by Good Must Grow found that 32 percent of Americans are planning to spend more with companies who are socially responsible, and 64 percent confirmed the importance of buying from socially responsible companies.
“This Christmas we are excited to provide people with a gift option that has a deeper meaning,” said Morris. “The consumer landscape is changing, and we’re happy to be a part of that by helping others make a difference and give back in a tangible way.”
