Early in 2014, I felt something stirring in my heart. I didn't know what it was, and all I could describe to my husband was that I felt like I needed to "do something." I didn't know what. I didn't actually even have any ideas. In July, we were headed home from a family beach trip, and I blurted out from the passenger seat, "Purpose Box!"

Understandably, my husband was confused, but as we fleshed it out, we knew it was perfect. Purpose Box would marry my love for shopping with a purpose and snail mail. By the time we pulled into the driveway, I had designed our logo, emailed friends to tell them what I was doing, and set up an email and Instagram account. The rest, as they say, is history.

Purpose Box is a quarterly mail subscription box filled with purchase with purpose items. Each shipment's contents are hand-selected and purchased for inclusion in the box. All of the items in the box have their own story, their own purpose.

Each box also has a featured purpose. Our inaugural box featured a family from Austin, Texas, pursuing a domestic adoption. All proceeds from the box are donated to the featured purpose. We invite you to tell us about your purpose and be considered as a featured purpose for an upcoming box! Want to know more?
