This leaflet was included in my package. This month's focus is Asia.
Inside is some information about the charities that International Blessings currently works with. This month's Cause of the Month is Rahab's Hope, a charity that supports women in India who have been the victims of trafficking.
The back of the leaflet includes some information about the items included, plus social media information for International Blessings.
These earrings are just stunning! I have received earrings from the Starfish Project before, and I think it's a wonderful organization. I don't usually get any sense of retail values of items from International Blessings, but just FYI, I did notice there's a sticker on these that says $15.99.
This necklace is also from the Starfish Project, but it does not have a price tag, nor is it listed on their website for sale. It is gorgeous, though! I love the black and silver combination.
Elephant Coin Purse
Oh my gosh, look at how adorable this little coin purse is! I believe it was made in Thailand and is part of the Ethnic Lanna organization. I think I am going to put it in my little niece's Christmas box, but there's a big part of me that just wants to keep it for myself! I just don't use coin purses, though, or I would definitely be tempted.
Verdict: I think International Blessings is doing great and important work with their subscription service! I loved my jewelry from the Starfish Project, and the coin purse is just too cute! I also love feeling like I'm helping global artisans support themselves and other important causes. I don't know the exact retail value of everything, but I will say that these three items must definitely be worth more than the $34 box cost.
