After living in Guatemala, developing lots of new Life Out of the Box products with women cooperatives and giving to lots of children including, students attending several preschools around Lake Atitlán with Mayan families, it’s time to keep this journey going.
The business is sustainable here in Guatemala now with our strong connections between us, our artisans and nonprofits that we are able to do business with from anywhere in the world. With that being said, we have decided to pack our bags once again with our sisters and head up north to Mexico by land.
We will be crossing the Guatemala/Mexico border by bus and then catching several other buses to end up in our final destination city of Oaxaca. We want to learn more about the Mexican Culture and see if we can assist children in need & help them go after their dreams. We believe every child is equal and we want to make a difference in every way possible.
We will of course also be searching through the local markets for new LOOTB products to add to our line as well. We know this is going to be quite the adventure and we’re excited to share it all with you the whole way through!
We will continue this adventure we call life because, as the wise Emerson says, “Life is a journey, not a destination.”
Life Out of the Box has been the greatest journey we have ever experienced and we are excited to see where it will take us from here. Stay tuned & get excited for what’s next.
