How They Give Back: Despite its enormous popularity, lots of people still don’t know about the philanthropic work that this great subscription box company does?

Benevolent Beauty Box is no longer available. This list seems recycled and very outdated.

MSA

Hi Tiffany, thanks for letting us know about Benevolent Beauty Box – we missed that when we were updating this list and have made the correct updates now. Sorry to hear that this feels outdated to you, it is a reader voted list from earlier this year but we wanted to put it in the feed again for those who many have missed it. We also wanted to get everyone excited about voting in the 2020 awards!

The coupon looks like it’s from 2017
