Mission Cute (!)

SONY DSCIt’s official. I broke up with Birchbox. I’ve been with them from the very, very, very beginning, referred countless people, and really think they have a great thing going on. But I found something better. At least in my mind.

I remember reading Samantha’s blog as she hinted about something exciting coming in the New Year. Enter Mission Cute. I was hesitant because I already had a subscription service (i.e. Birchbox) and because I wanted to see what this whole thing was about.

I’m sold.

SONY DSCMission Cute (changing the world one box of cute stuff at a time) starts at $29 a month but here is the amazing part. Half of that $29 goes towards a different charity every month! And Mission Cute is completely transparent; there is even a community where you can suggest charity ideas. So are you ready to see what’s in my first Mission Cute box for March?SONY DSCI was always super excited to get my Birchbox…and I still would be. But I was even more excited to see what was in my Mission Cute box, not only because I loved everything but because $14.50 was going towards this month’s charity– The Howard’s Center’s Westview house, which supports individuals who are recovering from psychiatric illness.

The box was filled with amazing goodies from:SONY DSC

Simply Whimsical Gifts | The Woodberry Press | Vanilla and Rose | Clean Line Soap Company

Everything is handmade by small businesses with love and care. I am in love. The box also comes with a card explaining just what you are supporting which I think is another incredible touch to know where your money and thoughts/prayers are going.

Totally on point. There’s a waiting list but I was on it for only a few days so sign up as soon as possible. Mission Cute/Samantha did not ask me to write any of this (and I don’t get anything if you sign up). I really believe in what she is doing and am so proud of her and her incredible idea that is helping charities and therefore people and also providing the best mail a girl could ask for.

I really don’t want to hate on people that use other subscription services. I personally have just been convicted that I need to be more intentional with my life and with my money (or lack thereof). I also love that everyone receives the the same thing and it would be age appropriate for anyone! It’s kind of like Etsy in a boy. ETSY IN A BOX, PEOPLE. Also, I would not be against regifting in this situation because, technically you paid for it, and technically it’s adorable.

It’s so exciting and inspirational to know that there is such a thing as being missional AND creative.

Cheers to Mission Cute!

    Love that half of the proceeds go to charity! I’ve also been thinking about breaking up with Birchbox after a LONG time! My last few boxes have just been so disappointing!

      Girl, I am not telling you to break up with them…but MISSION CUTE ALL THE WAY. The links are in here.

    I’ve been debating if I should join a subscription box for a while now, and this seems like a realy great option. I won’t feel guilty about indulging in my self since I’ll be helping others. Great twist on this concept!

    Ahh! I am just now getting to catch up on my favorite blogs and I am going to check out MissionCute now!! I’ve been wanting to subscribe to a little thing to get presents in the mail each month but I didn’t know what! I’m excited! 🙂

      Same with me. Same with me. Canceling birchbox and cutting out a few other things made the decision for me.

    I LOVE MISSION CUTE!!! I jut received my third box and once again every item is awesome! As mentioned above, re-gifting is a bonus of this box because everything in it is BFF gift worthy!
