Noonday Collection Gold Foiled Leaf Earrings – Value $28
These leather leaf earrings have gold foil on the front facing side and a beige leather on the back. (The leather measures about 1.5 inches long.)
More about Noonday Collection:

Branded Collective Metallic Cuff – Value $20
More about the meaning and cause behind Branded Collective:
BECOME A NUMBER TO RESTORE A NAME.
The BRANDED Collective employs survivors of human trafficking from Nashville-based non-profit End Slavery Tennessee.
BRANDED is an economic empowerment jobs program where the women collaborate with local artisans to design and handcraft the jewelry collection.
BRANDED: To mark with a branding iron. Any mark of disgrace, stigma, shame.
Many victims of human trafficking are BRANDED; their captors physically mark them with a number or symbol. The process is often violent: a forced tattoo, a burn or knife cut.
When you receive your item from the BRANDED Collective, you are BRANDED. Each piece contains a unique number that represents one of the millions trapped in the nightmare of trafficking.
COLLECTIVE: Something done by people acting as a group. Shared by all members of the group. A cooperative enterprise.
We are the BRANDED Collective: buyers, survivors, entrepreneurs, artisans. Together we wear the story, share the story and change the story.
This copper band is made my a survivor of human trafficking. While the identities of the makers of the bracelets can’t be revealed, Branded Collective still wants you to learn about the survivor that made your bracelet, so you can look up the initials they stamp on your bracelet to this page to learn more about the person.
Love for Humanity Organics Nourishing Face Cream – Value $54
This face cream is lightweight, in fact, I would describe it as more of a milky texture than a cream. It’s hydrating, gentle, and it absorbs quickly, plus it has a lovely citrus scent! This is one of my favorite face products I’ve sampled this month!
And Love for Humanity has partnered with Feed the Children to give back:
With every product purchased a meal is brought to feed one of the 16 million children suffering with hunger around the world.
Hobbs Tea Tea Traveler Set – Value $24
This set includes:
- Rooibos: clarify · caffeine-free
- Sencha green: uplift · medium caffeine
- Silver tip white: rejuvenate · low caffeine
- Yerba mate: conquer · high caffeine
- Mint oolong: cleanse · medium caffeine
At first, I thought $24 for 5 tea bags was a really high price (it still is), but then I read more about the tea so that I understand the pricing!
This tea itself is organic, and the packing and processing are equally important. These tea bags are free from GMOs, gluten, pesticides, preservatives, bleach, nylon, plastic and metal.
And each tea bag has more than twice the tea as your typical tea bag, so you can re-brew 2-7 cups of tea with the same bag.
I’ve sampled these before thanks to the Fall CAUSEBOX, and they are all delicious. If I had to pick a favorite I’d go with the Mint Oolong.
LSTN Bowery Zebra Earbuds – Value $50
When it comes to headphones/speakers, I always ask my husband Eric for his take since he has a much better ear for sound quality than I do. In general, he’s always skeptical of earbuds, but he was very impressed with the sound from these!
The earbuds are made from real wood, and they come with a set of different-sized silicone ear tips, so you can get the perfect fit:
These earbuds also include a microphone, which you can also use for skipping tracks.
And this is another brand that gives back:
LSTN was founded with a singular purpose: to change lives through the power of music. Proceeds from sales of all LSTN products go towards giving hearing aids to people in need worldwide through our charity partner, Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Reclaimed Wood Frame + Print
Every season, CAUSEBOX sends out a new 5″ X 7″ art print from a different artist. For the welcome box, you also get this wood frame, to display your print:
This stands on its own, and looks perfect on my desk!
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $176 – not counting the wooden frame or print! I think that’s great for a $54.95 box, and even better for the $44.95 cost when you sign up with coupon code WELCOME10. This is one of those boxes that makes you feel good about every single item and the causes they support, and as an added bonus the value is great, too.
What do you think of the Welcome Box from CAUSEBOX? (FYI – this box is still available if you subscribe now!)
