I can't remember how I found out about it, but I ordered a Stash Builder Box last week. (First off, I should say that I am not being paid for anything I'm saying about the box. I just like the box idea and the cause behind it.) I think I might have originally heard about them from Suz at her DesertSky Quilt blog or maybe I read about it on Sarah's Confessions of a Fabric Addict blog. Regardless of where I heard about it, I received my box this week. It is packaged very nicely and contains some really fun items (one of which I was about to order anyway). Here is how it comes.
The box is really nice and sturdy and filled with all kinds of quilty goodness. I found out that 20% of the price of the box goes to help kids in need. This information below comes from the Stash Builder Box site:
"Currently, we are donating to: MY STUFF BAGS
The My Stuff Bags Foundation provides comfort and a message of hope to abused and neglected children entering crisis and foster care through its unique program, My Stuff Bags.
My Stuff Bags are bright blue individual duffels filled with brand new personal items and a warm, often hand-made “security” blanket – all theirs to keep. Packed with items they desperately need as they adjust to their new surroundings, My Stuff Bags provide things to do and to hold during this difficult time.
The My Stuff Bags Foundation is the only organization providing rescued children nationwide with new belongings in duffels that they can keep."
This sounds like a worthy cause to me (and who doesn't like quilty goodness). There is more information on the site about what you can do to help more directly if you would like.
This is what it looks like when you open your box.
There is a cute little sack containing goodies and below that there is this...
another level of goodness. Here is what was in my box.
