  1. I love Causebox, I’ve been getting it for a year now and think it’s awesome. Just an fyi, the article says US only but I get Causebox in Canada 🙂

  2. I’m surprisedyou didn’t mention Pura Vida. It’s in my top 3 out of the 200+ boxes I’ve tried. Inexpensive, a good cause, mostly for women but some guys like them too. I will NEVER give up this subscription!

  3. This is probably the best “best of” list I have seen of these lists so far. So many truly wonderful boxes with awesomely big heart. My personal faves are causebox and love with food. Thanks for sharing.
