The recipe for a great subscription box is simple, but also hard to execute. You need equal parts amazing products, and a price tag worth justifying the blind splurge. One box has all of that and more, making sure you get great products at a good price. Plus, a chunk of that money goes to a fantastic cause worth supporting. The box is call FabFitFun, and it brings you luxe beauty and lifestyle products while giving back to trusted nonprofits at the same time.
From incredible small businesses to amazing savings to impactful donations, this box has it all. And this fall, the subscription service is going global by benefiting UNICEF.
In the past few weeks alone there have been hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes devastating regions around the globe. Giving to legitimate and impactful charities addressing the aftermath of disasters has never been easier — and FabFitFun is proving it. With every purchase of the quarterly box, the brand will give a portion of proceeds to UNICEF, which helps provide relief to children living in unstable conditions.
All buyers also pick an additional donation of $1, $10, $28 or $46 upon ordering their box. This amount goes directly to UNICEF's efforts addressing childhood inequalities around the globe. So far, FunFabFit has already raised $100,000 for UNICEF through their Fall Box — and that number is only projected to grow.
"UNICEF is a charity that we have wanted to work with for years and their mission is one that really resonates with our members," Reina Govindarajan, director of brand partnerships, lifestyle tells Bustle. "We initially set the bar for our fundraising at $50,000 and were able to raise twice that amount thanks to our promotions and add-ons program that allowed our members to donate directly."
The seasonal box offers seven pre-selected fashion, beauty, and lifestyle products ranging from a scarf to a jewelry holder to a mud mask. On top of these staples, box recipients are able to choose one additional fashion and beauty item to add to their box.
The Fall Box is available on the FabFitFun website right now for $49.99. You can choose to buy just this box benefiting UNICEF, or sign up for quarterly goodie boxes benefiting an array of different nonprofits.
The FitFabFun Fall Box benefiting UNICEF is the service's highest valued box to date, according to the brand. All nine goodies reach a cumulative total of $377, but you can snag them for just $49.99 plus a donation of your choice. That's a pretty awesome savings.
Not only is the subscription service giving back to charity, but it's also helping to support female entrepreneurs and ethical indie companies. The Fall Box includes products from eight women-owned brands, including a Mer-Sea & Co. Scarf, Whish Beauty Renewing Mud Mask, and The Jetset Diaries Cable Knit Beanie. On top of that, five of the items are from cruelty-free bands and three are made in the USA, where working conditions in factories are heavily regulated.
UNICEF isn't the only charity FabFitFun partners with for their boxes. Each seasonal box features a different nonprofit partner. Past partnerships have included survivor advocacy organization Joyful Heart Foundation and global girls empowerment organization More Than Me.
Sometimes the box donates only a set amount of proceeds per box purchased. Other times, like with the UNICEF collaboration, customers are also given the add-on option to give back directly through the FabFitFun website. No matter what the stipulations of donations, you can rest assured knowing you are always giving back.
