Every quarter you’ll get $150 worth of items plus be able to designate where $7 of the purchase price is donated.

Half United Fighting Hunger Necklace ($34) This appeared in the last FabFitFun VIP box and I was honestly disappointed to see it in this box. It’s a great item for this subscription and matches it really well… but it just appeared as an item in one of the largest subscription boxes for women. I already have 2. The recycled bullet casing symbolizes the fight against hunger but I admit, I wish they would move past the bullets.

Denik Be the Change Journal ($17.99) Love journals! Non-exclusive Denik journals sell for $11.95.

Tribe Alive Bracelet ($35) Crafted by Tribe Alive exclusively for Sevenly. Every bracelet is handmade by women in Honduras under fair trade working conditions.

I think the pricing for this is a more than a little disingenuous – Tribe Alive is selling it for $35 and donating $7. Similar bracelets are selling for $25 – and they have clasps!

Perf Turkish Towel ($55) 15% of the proceeds from each towel go to provide clean water in Haiti. I get excellent quality towels on Amazon for about $15, so you can do the math and decide if its worth paying $40 extra to have 15% donated.

“Good Day” Sevenly Cling ($9.95) This is cute, I love it. I’m going to put it in my bathroom!

Smarty Pants Vitamins ($4.25)

Good Spread Peanut Butter & Honey Packet (Sample)

I liked that you know exactly how much money gets donated from each box – $7. I didn’t like that the prices were extremely inflated, or that we received sample size items (the CAUSEBOX FAQ clearly states “Every item in the CAUSEBOX is full-sized!”). Do I think there was at least $55 of value (plus a bonus of $7 donation)? Absolutely! But I don’t think is their best effort – and pales massively in comparison to their first box, which I missed out on. I think they should just be honest with the pricing, support socially conscious companies and the donations subscribers are making, and I would be perfectly happy. Do you agree? That being said, I’ll use everything in this box except the necklace, so I’m happy with the items – there just weren’t any “wow” items.

    It sucks to be disappointed about a box especially when the price was a little more than usual for subscriptions. Why don’t you do a giveaway for the items you got doubles or more of for your viewers/subscribers? It will get rid of the stuff you don’t want and might give it to someone who would like it.

      it actually takes a lot of time to set up the giveaways. i give away lots of whole boxes, i donate other items.

    Yikes, I would have been severely pi$$ed if I had received this box!

    My box has yet to arrive. Maybe it’s hanging out with my March BirchBox. It doesn’t matter because I am not looking forward to it. I loved the first box.

    This was a disappointing box for me. Just was not happy to see that necklace again, and pricing like that really puts me off. Love the towel and the journal is good, just not sure I am happy to have paid $50 for this box. (Did the year plan as the last box was so fabulous.) Hope the next box is better.

      wellll, at least i am not alone! i hate being hyper critical of a box (really, it’s just one opinion!), but the inflated prices really bug me. i’m still sad i didn’t get the first box.
