day 180 : announcing our April charity {be nice box}

its that time of the month again!
time to announce another super-rad charity that is helping change the world!

this month, we are doing things a bit different over at the Be Nice Box!
in past months, we give $1 to charity for each box sold.
this month, the gift that subscribers are receiving will count as our financial donation.
make sense?

for April, we are supporting L.I.F.E. line ; a CTC international organization.
L.I.F.E. line is one of my favorite groups! we have been supporting them for a couple years!
blake and i have donated money, purchased items for their store {here, here & here} & are always excited to spread the word about what they are doing!

L.I.F.E. line is a group people {makers & manufacturers in kenya} who are creating amazing items. a group of 27 women {most of whom have children with disabilities} handcraft all of the items from this line, while the maasai mums are a co-op of over 400 women who create all of these amazing pieces by hand.
by supporting them, we are giving them a living wage & health insurance, supporting their local economy and providing a safe life & education for their children.
you can read more here.

CTC international also recently launched cafe ubuntu! {you can purchase their coffee in whole foods!}
the cafe itself is the very first coffee shop {EVER} in maai mahiu, kenya! they will serve coffee & pastries & will have indoor bathroom facilities and be a safe meeting ground for travelers, locals and tourists.

so, how are WE helping this month?!
{i cant give everything away because we still want the subscriber gift to be a surprise!} 
the mums from L.I.F.E. life fashion are creating something for cafe ubuntu and we have purchased them!

so this month, our purchase will directly impact the organization we are serving.
also, we have 10 April boxes left! 
they are shipping out at the end of this week, so if you would like to join us {please do!}; you can sign up here.
