day 205 : last call for June subscribers, a sneak peak & this months charities

happy wednesday!
i have mentioned {in the past two posts} about the neighborhood-wide garage sales that happened last saturday. the day after, our neighborhood hosted its annual festival ; used book sale, food trucks, a silent auction and a vendor fair. 
i took to the streets & had a table for the be nice box.
i met a lot of great folks in the neighborhood & got to talk about kindness {which, hello, my favorite!}

if you are looking to join us for the June box, please do! this months theme is 'full bellies' and all of our good deeds are about FOOD! i never like to 'spoil' the boxes, but this box is probably my favorite box second only to the Feb box! {we have a new feature on the website ; you can check out all of the past boxes here
we only have a few boxes left before we sell out! if you are looking to try the box ; this is an awesome month to do so! 

we have a few new items coming to the shop soon! we will be offering plantable seed coins {these are so amazing!}, grab bags {which will be a 'mini-version' of the boxes} and reusable tote bags.
also, the price of the 1-month boxes will be going up ; but the other three offers {3, 6 & 12-mon} will be staying the same.

each month, we give $1 from each box sold to charity! since the June box is all about food, we will be giving our money to TWO awesome organizations who have been working hard for years to end hunger both in children & older adults.
we will be splitting our donation this month between no kid hungry and meals on wheels. bonus: right now, all donations to no kid hungry will be MATCHED by the arby's foundation.
meals on wheels has a special place in my heart! when i was a kid, my grandparents delivered for MoW and i have quite a few memories of being really young & bringing plates of food to people in their community. 
it makes me super emotional just thinking about it ; but i feel so lucky to have been raised by parents and grandparents who were always going out of their way to make the world a better and kinder place.
ah, i am bawling right now! my grandpa would be so proud of this little business and our kindness movement! i feel really blessed to have been exposed to kindness when i was so young.
{go call your grandparents // parents & tell them you are thankful for the lessons they taught you!} 

if you have already subscribed to the June box ; thanks! you are going to have a blast spreading kindness this month! and if you are teetering on the edge ; come on over! this will be a great month to change the world! <3
