Birchbox Partners with Pencils of Promise for August

For the month of August, Birchbox partners with Pencils of Promise with 15% of proceeds from products purchased in the Birchbox Shop being donated to Pencils of Promise with the goal of building a school in Central America. Imagine, your purchase of boscia’s Green Tea Blotting Linens or Manna Kadar Cosmetics’s sheer glo shimmer lotion can help give kids in Central America a quality education. All children deserve an education and helping to fund a building project for schools gives them that chance at an educational life.

Birchbox is setting out to raise $25,000, the amount needed to build an entire school. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Pencils of Promise and to support the education of children in need around the world. We hope our collaboration with PoP results in even more awareness of their organization and the amazing work they do everyday,” said Katia Beauchamp, Co-Founder, Birchbox.

“This exciting partnership speaks perfectly to the foundation of PoP. We began with a group of individuals coming together, giving what they could, and building a school”, said Melanie Stevenson, Directors of Operations at PoP. “Working with innovative companies like Birchbox takes our citizen philanthropy fabric to new levels, and ultimately provides more schools and a better education for kids in need.”

Birchbox will be featuring a special edition Pencils of Promise shipper (see above) on all August boxes.
