We are big on snacks at Birchbox. Huge, actually. We take it so seriously that we actually have someone on staff (our director of content, Mollie) who is the company’s unofficial snackmaster. She makes sure that our office is always well stocked with delicious—and nutritious (this part is of the utmost importance to her)—food items. Given those parameters, it should come as no surprise that our cabinets are brimming with KIND bars.
We like them so much that we sampled in our July Birchbox and also jumped at the opportunity to do a sweepstakes with them. Since the company is all about doing good for your body and the community, this promotion asks more of entrants than just filling out a form. Everyone who enters agrees to accept the KINDING Mission to pass on a piece of finished reading material to someone else to enjoy it too. If KIND gets enough people to agree to partake in this charitable challenge, the company will partner with the Whole Kids Foundation to plant sustainable vegetable gardens at selected schools throughout the country. Both KIND and Whole Kids Foundation share a commitment to ending childhood obesity and the gardens are a means to educate and empower children to make more nutritious choices.
Beyond just doing a good deed, your participation will make you eligible to be one of ten winners to receive a KIND Cube containing 20 delicious whole nut and fruit bars. Each prize is worth $43 and will keep you from being hungry for ages (or at least weeks). To enter, visit our Facebook page and start thinking about what piece of reading material you want to pass along!
Now that your food craving is satisfied, it’s time to satiate another urge: to buy makeup. Our recommendation? A super-pretty blush like this one from Laura Geller.
