Life Out of the Box has become an incredible journey beyond our wildest imaginations. Ever since we jumped on that plane to Nicaragua in 2012, we have been chasing our dream of creating something bigger than us. This adventure has taken us from Nicaragua up to Guatemala and Mexico where we were able to expand on our goals. We even flew over to Morocco to make our social venture truly global.
This summer, we are taking Life Out of the Box to a new level. We have team members that are going to be expanding our giving to more countries around the world. We will be giving to countries throughout Southeast Asia as well as Peru in South America. We are partnering with non governmental organizations that focus on elementary education and our goal for 2015 is to give school supplies to 10,000 children around the world. This is a big goal, but we know with your support we CAN make it happen.
The most exciting news for us is that we are returning to Guatemala and Nicaragua to expand our product line and give to thousands of children. We’re going back to our roots– where our journey of creating Life Out of the Box started. We’re excited to see familiar faces and reconnect with the people and the land that is our home away from home.
We are also looking forward to the new and unknown that is ahead of us. We’re going back to develop new products with talented artisans, but we’re going in with a completely open mind of what those products will be exactly. The future products of LOOTB are going to be developed as we’re living in Central America again–authentically and organically as they were at the very beginning.
This time though, we have YOU. As we travel, give and develop new items we want you to be a part of the journey with us. We’ll be updating you all on new products we find, non-profit partners we work with and other adventures we encounter along the way. You are part of our story, you are our tribe, you are LOOTB–and we need you.
So here we go in just two more weeks, off on a plane to immerse ourselves back into the beautiful culture of Central America and we can’t wait for what’s in store. We are looking forward to Living Life Out of the Box back in Central America where it all began.
P.S. We’re now selling bracelet & shirt combos so that we can give as many meals and school supplies to those in need while we’re in Central America. Help us reach our goal & check them out on our store here.
