GlobeIn December 2015 Box Spoiler #3 + Coupon
The theme for the upcoming GlobeIn December 2015 Box is… Celebrate! More from GlobeIn:
Isn’t it nice to think that celebration, in one way or another, has been a hallmark of humanity since our earliest ancestors? As a species, we are instinctually compelled to whoop it up every once and awhile over something we feel grateful for.
This month’s collection of wares celebrates this capacity for cheer, and the idea that celebrations come in all shapes and sizes—big or small, public or private, annual or daily or once in a lifetime.
And the latest spoiler is:
Each Celebrate Box will come with a set of two Upcycled Greeting Cards from Malawi (Retail $8). Colors will vary.
More from GlobeIn:
The thought of living for decades as a disabled person in a refugee camp is unlikely to conjure a celebratory mood, so it seems a great irony that people living in such conditions create festive greeting cards for spreading cheer between you and your loved ones.
The Umoja Group is an association of people with disabilities living as refugees at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi. And the fact is, they do have something to celebrate—their own resilience. Your cards are made out of recycled, handmade paper and repurposed African textiles whose vibrant colors represent the fierceness of spirit required to kindle new hope out of the rubble of displacement and poverty.
Suggested usage: Let someone know how much you appreciate them. Be specific.
And in case you missed the first two spoilers:
Each Celebrate Box will come with a Beaded Necklace by Tribe Alive (Retail $42).
Tribe Alive is an ethical fashion company that believes there is nothing more stylish than giving back. To complete the order for your handcrafted, beaded tassel necklace, Tribe Alive commissioned twenty female artisans in Santa Ana, Honduras for whom the job provided three full weeks of wages, amounting to several months of living expenses.
Tassels are in this season! So at the next holiday party you can make a fashion statement, while talking about how your necklace helps empower women all the way across the globe!
Materials: glass beads and cotton cords.
Suggested usage: Adorn your beautiful self.
And in case you missed the first spoiler:
a Hand-dyed Batik Table Runner by Della (Retail $35). More from GlobeIn:
Imagine training for two years as a full-time, unpaid apprentice only to find that your training does not amount to a living wage or consistent work.

Based in Hohoe, Ghana, Della is a socially responsible fashion line whose employees receive a steady, fair income and various educational opportunities.
This table runner is reversible! One side is turquoise-white and the other is light grey with white polka dots.
Measurements: 49 x 18 in
