5 Subscriptions That Are Bigger Than Their Box

As the subscription trend has grown, we’ve seen all kinds of products become more popular – from food and beauty boxes to music and movie streaming services.

But did you know that your subscriptions can also help change the world? Here are five of our favorites that give back for a greater cause.

image

Causebox

Causebox collaborates with up-and-coming brands to curate a selection of products that are meaningful, inspiring, and uplifting. They encourage women to be their best self while introducing them to companies and communities that are making a difference in the world. Each box contains 5-8 lifestyle products from different brands that are focused on ethical and sustainable production. And a percentage of proceeds from each box sold is donated to charity!

image

Love With Food

If your New Year’s resolution has anything to do with eating healthier and being more philanthropic, then you’ll love this subscription box. Each month, you can go on a fun foodie adventure with a box delivered right to your door filled with new unique, tasty, and natural snacks. And for every box sold, Love With Food donates a portion of their proceeds to help fight childhood hunger in the US and around the world.

image

Soma

Soma is on a mission to improve life for everyone with sustainable filters, carafes, and pitchers that make water healthy and delicious. Because they are passionate about clean water and giving back, they created a subscription program in which you can receive a fresh filter every two months so you always have the freshest water. And with every filter you receive, Soma includes a donation to support clean drinking water projects globally.

image

Mission Cute

Mission Cute aims to make a difference, one cute box at a time. Each month, you receive a box filled with hand-curated items like candles, jewelry, and more, all from local artisans and small businesses. And every month, Mission Cute partners with a nonprofit organization (chosen by their community), donates 50% of their net proceeds, and helps promote the organization’s mission to raise awareness.

The Spring

The Spring is charity: water’s monthly giving program. It’s made up of a passionate group of supporters who are committed to seeing a day when everyone on the planet has clean water. Not only are members helping to bring clean and safe drinking water to thousands of people every single month, but they’re also helping to put maintenance teams to work so we can ensure that water keeps flowing for years to come.

Members of The Spring are connected with their impact on a monthly basis, through real-time updates and stories from around the world that show how their monthly donations are being put to use. We know how to solve the water crisis in our lifetime. With your help, we will!

Gifts that give more

Most people immediately think about the physical benefits of clean water. The improved health, access to education, increased income, and more. But over the past decade, we’ve gotten to see some of the less expected ways clean water can change people’s lives. In addition to providing families with more time and job opportunities, clean water can also inspire pride, hope, and so much more.

Here are six feelings you can give when you choose to give the gift of clean water.

1. Dignity

Give the gift of dignity this holiday season so women can have enough water to bathe and take care of themselves.

image


Women who are responsible for collecting water for their families have to make a choice. Should the water they collected today be given to their children? Should it be used to make dinner for their families who have been out working in the field all day? Most days, women have to sacrifice the chance to care for their own personal hygiene so that their families can have enough water.

2. Equality

Give the gift of equality this holiday season so that boys and girls alike can all focus on more important things, like earning an income or going to school.

image


Collecting water is often a woman’s job. It’s tedious, exhausting, and painful work. Women often have to walk miles to the nearest river or spring and have to take turns collecting water using pans or ladles. It’s a brutally slow process that can take hours. Especially when they have to wait in line. Young girls learn to balance the weight of a water bucket, sometimes with a baby on their back.

3. Happiness

Give the gift of happiness this holiday season so communities can have a reason to smile, laugh, cheer, and dance every single day.

image


One of the best parts about providing a community with access to clean water is the celebration that follows. We’ve seen entire communities show up with music blasting as kids jump up and down in amazement. Men and women of all ages start joyfully dancing and cheering. It is one of the most unforgettable and exciting moments of the entire journey to clean water.

4. Hope

Give the gift of hope so community members can have the freedom to dream bigger and the means to make their dreams a reality.

image


We believe clean water has the power to instill hope for a better future. Kids who used to miss class can now study English, Science, and Mathematics in hopes of becoming teachers and doctors. Women can now use their extra time to build and maintain vegetable gardens. And families can worry less about surviving and start looking forward to their future.

5. Pride 

Give the gift of pride this holiday season so students can proudly serve as good examples to their fellow community members and represent the hope of tomorrow.

image


No charity: water project is complete until we’ve also educated the local community about the importance of sanitation and hygiene. Many students learn about the importance of handwashing at school and are put in the unique position to teach their family, friends, and community why a sanitary environment is equally as important as clean water.

6. Safety

Give the gift of safety this holiday season so women and girls can access clean water right in the middle of their village without the fear of being attacked by anything or anyone.

image


In many countries around the world, women and girls put their lives in danger every day to collect water for their families. They wake up before sunrise and spend hours taking on the exhausting and dangerous task of walking for water alone. Despite their fears of predators that lurk near water sources (like snakes, crocodiles, and strangers) they make the walk each day.


There’s no better time than the holidays, a season all about giving, to truly take a step back and think about what you truly have the power of giving when you give.

This year, give so much more than a gift. Give happiness. Give hope. Give clean water.

Making change with Nautica

In 2007, Nautica led the way as one of charity: water’s first corporate partners. Since then, Nautica has sponsored a water walk at our second annual charity: ball, held a holiday photo challenge, and helped Nepal rebuild after it was hit by a devastating earthquake in 2015.

And that’s not all. On World Water Day 2012, Nautica launched “Give Change to Make Change,” an incredible consumer campaign in which they ask customers to round up their purchase to the next dollar and donate the remainder to charity: water. Thanks to generous contributions by Nautica’s customers, more than $2 million has been raised to fund clean water projects all around the world.

image

Additionally, to spread the charity: water story even further this year, Nautica hosted their very own virtual reality activation at their SoHo store location in New York City to share our VR film, The Source. They purchased two VR headsets and set up a permanent in-store installation and invited customers to view the film and learn more about charity: water as they shopped.

To date, Nautica has sponsored water projects in eight countries and has raised enough to serve approximately 77,000 people with clean and safe drinking water! Not only has this partnership resulted in more people having access to clean water, it has given time back to mothers, education back to kids, improved health to families and created greater sustainability for entire communities.

Thank you so much to Nautica and their amazing customers for joining us on our mission to end the world water crisis. We couldn’t do it without you!

The Slade family is at it again!

For many families, the infamous holiday photo means dressing up in matching sweaters or pajamas and gathering around a tree to quickly snap a picture to send to all of your family and friends.

But for the Slade family, getting together for the annual holiday card goes a little differently.

For the past six years, Michael Slade and his family have been creating extravagant holiday card videos featuring everything from underwater renditions of Elvis’s ‘Blue Christmas’ to huge family food fights. Last year, they even built a mobile home and gave it away to someone who didn’t have a place to call home during the holidays!

In addition to having a lot of fun together, what makes it really special is that the Slade family also runs a charity: water campaign alongside each video asking their family and friends to consider donating to help bring clean drinking water to people in need during the holidays.

To date, the Slade’s have raised over $8,300 for clean water, helping to change the lives of more than 275 people!

It’s one of our favorite moments each year… gathering together in the office to see what crazy idea the Slade family came up with for their holiday card this time. We are so grateful for their fun, amazing, and passionate personalities and for their dedication to using their creativity to help change the world.

Haven’t seen any of their videos yet or want to relive one of your favorites? Watch them all here. And considering helping them ring in the holidays this year with the gift of clean water.

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

I have known about charity: water, and the way that they are doing things differently in the nonprofit sector. I wanted to come and see it for myself!

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?  

Spending a lot of time with spreadsheets and on Salesforce. Charity: water is migrating onto Salesforce so there are a lot of little things that need to be ironed out before the CRM system can be used properly. I’m here to try and find out if things are working smoothly, and see if processes can be made more efficient.

What’s your favorite thing about interning at charity: water?

Beer and Pizza on Friday, as it’s a great way to meet people. It’s also lovely to work with such an open and friendly team, everyone is willing to help if you need it.

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

I moved over to the US from the UK this year, so I’m trying to explore America and New York as much as I can. Any recommendations as to what I should see and do whilst I am here is much appreciated.

What is your favorite place to hang out in New York?

West Village/Greenwich Village

Where do you want to be in 15 years?

I don’t like to have plans set in stone as they always seem to change but ideally, I’d like to be working in the nonprofit sector, managing a large team of people doing amazing things for the benefit of others. Perhaps a Director of Programs/Operations.

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

When I first heard about charity: water, I loved their whole mission. After doing a little more research I knew this was the kind of organization I wanted to work for, and then I saw the office in person for the first time and I just had to be a part of it.

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

What is so great about my position is that there is no “typical day” for me. One day I can be making sure we have enough supplies and snacks for the staff or helping recognize something in the office and the next day I can be running around checking out venues for our upcoming events. One of my favorite things about it is that I am always doing something new, so I’ll never get bored.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

The snacks definitely. And the people are all super friendly and welcoming.

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

When I’m not here I spend a lot of time with my family. I consider my brothers, sister, and parents my best friends. I also am a server and a bartender at a restaurant.

What is your favorite place to hang out in New York?

The High Line

Where do you want to be in 15 years?

Hopefully working my way up in a great nonprofit organization or running one of my own. I hope to have a cool husband, a couple cute kids, and a bunch of dogs.

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

My high school hosted a gala to benefit charity: water during my junior year and I have been following the organization ever since. I have always been impressed by the transparency that charity: water has its supporters and when I saw the opportunity to work here, I jumped for it!

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

I typically come in and check through our Facebook platform, sometimes posting for the day and hopefully adding new supporters (yay!). The rest of my day is usually made up of working on some longer-term projects as well as responding to issues that our supporters are having with the website. I also get to hang out with Taina all day, so what more could I really want?

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

The people are some of the friendliest and most open that I have ever met and I love getting to know everyone. The free coffee doesn’t hurt either!

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

Outside of charity: water I am a full-time student at Fordham University where I am on the Campus Activities Board and play club lacrosse! Any free time I get I love to go check out the Botanical Gardens and, if the tickets are cheap, head to a few Broadway shows!

What is your favorite place to hang out in New York?

If there aren’t too many people around, the American Wing at the MET is one of my favorite places in the world and I could spend hours there. Otherwise Lincoln Center is a favorite, the seats off to the side are the perfect place to read a book.

Where do you want to be in 15 years?

I honestly have no idea, but I do know that I want to be in the nonprofit world and, of nearly equal importance, I want to own a dog, maybe two!

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

Every day in the office so far has started with a cup of green tea and checking in with Kathleen. Other than those certainties, no two days have looked exactly the same. I might be researching donor prospects, responding to customer questions on Zendesk, or mailing a birthday card to an amazing supporter.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

My favorite part about interning at charity: water is definitely the people, from the staff to the supporters. I get to be surrounded by passionate and hard-working professionals from varying backgrounds all coming together to end the water crisis. Getting to hear about the things our supporters are doing for clean water every day is beyond inspiring. I have to add, Bagel Mondays are pretty high up on the list as well.

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

I spend Thursdays and Fridays back home in Massachusetts where I work for Advocates, Inc. - a nonprofit organization based out of Framingham, MA offering services to individuals with developmental disabilities.

What is your favorite place to hang out in New York?

Definitely Central Park

Where do you want to be in 15 years?

Ideally, in 15 years I’ll be going to work every day doing something I love and genuinely making a difference in the world. I better also have a puppy or two by then.

Hometown: Hoboken, NJ
Team: Water Programs

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

charity: water is such a unique organization from the 100% model to their creative branding, but one of the most significant things that drew me to charity: water is their ability to connect. The way that c:w tell the stories of those that don’t have access to clean drinking water are stories of hope, not sadness. Water is one of the most basic human needs that connects us all, and through charity: water’s creativity and willingness to do it differently, we are reminded of that connection.

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

My day involves assisting the Water Programs team with any tasks that they need help with, from WASH research to cleaning up grant cards.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

My favorite part of interning at charity: water is the people that I get to work with. Everyone at charity: water has an interesting or inspiring story and they are more than willing to share all of the things that they have learned along the way.

The simplicity and power of the mission, the incredible people, and the opportunity to make a lasting impact.

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

Honestly, no two days are the same at charity: water, and I love it that way. I’m currently working on a number of long-term (2-3 month) projects, but I also support Christine, the Director of Strategy and Business Ops, on day-to-day, ad-hoc deliverables. Most of my time is spent either modeling in excel, performing research, or writing internal memos.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

The energy around the office - people actually love coming to work!

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

Team: Key Relationships

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

A mentor introduced me to charity: water in high school, and years later, the lecture series I led at Gonzaga allowed the chance to bring Cubby to campus to share more about the organization’s history and efforts. Since I have been looking for opportunities to get more involved! I fully stand behind the mission and vision of charity: water and knew I could learn a ton and positively contribute, so I seized the chance to apply when the fall internships opened.

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

With coffee in hand, I settle in either at my desk or some other cozy nook around the office, check in with Brady, and pick up whatever project I was previously working on. During down moments, I wanted the office to chat with other wanders (the kitchen is the best spot). Getting to know the staff has been a fun and meaningful way to really dive into the culture here.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

The work hard, play hard atmosphere is contagious. These staffers are some of the most focused, creative, and dedicated individuals I know, but they also value the relationships, people-centered platform, and narrative only results, which makes for fun collaboration and hangout time!

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

I had worked in investment banking after graduating, and while I learned quite a lot, I felt too far removed from anything that I found meaningful. So I began doing research and speaking with people, and that’s how I stumbled upon charity: water. It was one of the few organizations that resonated with me, so I hopped on a 16-hour plane ride and moved to New York.

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

Lots of Excel for the project I’m focusing on, big mason jars full of water, and quality learning time with Carlos (our Data Scientists) who is a total data whiz and wonderful to work with.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

Is it cheesy to say the people? Everyone’s so nice! Besides that, it’s great being at a fully fledged nonprofit with so many different teams because it’s an amazing opportunity to understand how the various pieces of a good organization operate and fit together.

Team: Water Programs

Why did you want to intern at charity: water?

I fell in love with charity: water’s mission during my undergrad and talked about the water crisis to just about anyone who would listen. But, what really drew me in was the integrity that’s rooted in this organization and how committed each individual is to uphold the values that Scott initially laid out. It’s not a mentality that you find many places and I knew that it was something I wanted to be a part of.

What does a typical day in the office look like for you?

I deal with all things data for the Water Programs team! Whether it’s through reconciling data or building charts, I get to see all the work that our partners are doing on the ground.

What’s your favorite part of interning at charity: water?

This may sound like a cop-out answer, but it’s the people. I’ve been a part of several other internships and none of them have had people as invested in the organization as charity: water. It’s immediately apparent that everyone is talented, genuine, and passionate - and so willing to teach you about their work. It makes for a really great work environment. Also, the sparkling water is an added bonus…it’s the little things.

What goes on in your life outside charity: water?

I’m the type of person who is constantly on the go. When I’m not here, I’m either working at my other job or exploring the city/Hudson Valley. Or baking. Or running. Or finding new coffee shops to frequent.

What is your favorite place to hang out in New York?

I feel like I’m always finding new places to hang out around the city, but a favorite has always been Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Where do you want to be in 15 years?

Building a career in the nonprofit field, traveling the world, and laughing with people I love. (It’s vague, but 15 years is a really long time…)
