Faithbox Encourages Spiritual Growth and Philanthropy through Monthly Subscription
Company delivers eco-friendly products that are ‘good for the soul’
NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Carving out a niche in the recent subscription box trend, Faithbox is encouraging Christians in their daily walk with spiritually and ethically focused contents, curated specifically for the faith-minded consumer.
After a soft launch late last year, Faithbox has already shipped more than 10,000 boxes to customers. Each box includes a daily devotional book with reflections, Bible verses or suggestions for acts of kindness. Faithbox partners with quality companies to include handpicked products included in each box that are socially-responsible such as, SoapBox Soaps, Smiles for the People toothbrushes, Blue Planet sunglasses, THX coffee and Mitt Scoots socks.
“Faithbox delivers Christian inspiration to your doorstep every month,” said Willie Morris, founder and CEO of Faithbox. “We want to help fellow Christians grow in their faith and positively impact the world.”
For every box purchased a hungry child is fed through a partnership with Rice Bowls. Already the partnership has provided 30,000 meals and is estimated to contribute 10,000 meals per month moving forward. In addition, many of the companies whose products are featured in Faithbox make one-to-one charitable contributions. This combination makes Faithbox inspirational, practical and philanthropic.
Faithbox also works with high-profile ministry leaders to allow them to handpick items that they love. Joyce Meyer teamed with Faithbox for the September box and included her new book and products she personally chose and felt would bless those who received them. Bestselling author and YouTube sensation, Jefferson Bethke, and VOUS Church Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. will curate October and November’s box contents, respectively.
Research shows consumers are becoming more educated and aware about the products and companies they support. A 2015 study by Good Must Grow found that 32 percent of Americans are planning to spend more with companies who are socially responsible, and 64 percent confirmed the importance of buying from socially responsible companies.
“The American consumer has already shown it appreciates the monthly box service; we want to take that a step further to give them the sustainable products about which they care,” said Morris. “We also pay attention to underlying reasons they want those products, which is to be a better world citizen and to respect God’s people and His creation.”
Morris was raised in the Catholic Church, became an atheist during college, and found his way back to God while working with a non-profit organization and seeing its work and impact. Morris started Faithbox to make a positive impact through simple actions and help others enrich their faith.
