Be Brave Box Review - July 2016 - Canadian Wellness Subscription Box

This box was provided complimentary for review.

What is it? Be Brave Box 
How Much? $27/bi-monthly, including shipping. Prices in Canadian dollars. 
What’s in it? 5 items to add happiness to your day

Be Brave Box is a Canadian subscription box aimed at those living with chronic illness. Be Brave Box was started by Taylor, a teen from Alberta who came up with the idea while recovering from a kidney transplant. 

I know how hard it is to be stuck in a hospital for days or even weeks or to have to go to a hospital for appointments daily. I also know how much waiting is involved when it comes to hospitals. I wanted this box to become a way for us all to meet others that understand living with a health condition.

Read more about Taylor's story here.

The aim of Be Brave Box is to provide a box filled with surprises to brighten the day of people living with illness. The products aim to help those with health issues cope with their situation, and help them understand they are not alone. Boxes ship every two months and prices include shipping. 

This is a review for the last box, which was sent in July. The next box is September and Be Brave is taking sign ups until September 15th.

The box is long and narrow. It fit in my condo sized mail box. Be Brave Box aims to keep the packaging small to keep postage costs low. For this reason, they do not provide tracking numbers.

Product Info Sheet

Chicken Soup for the Soul Word Finds ($4.50)
This is a great item for those who spend a lot of time in hospital, waiting for appointments, or convalescing at home. Word Finds like this are a good way to beat boredom and keep the mind stimulated.

David Bromstad Color Your Wold Notebook (~$3.99)
This 80 page lined notebook was included to keep stored in a bag, and write down symptoms or notes for doctor appointments. Or... use it to write down your plans to start your own business, like Taylor!

Project 7 Birthday Cake Gum ($1.50)
This gum is very good. I've bought a few different flavours before (check them out here). Project 7 creates delicious sugar free gums and mints, and also supports several charitable causes.

Coco & Hana Socks ($5)
Something about new, cozy socks always makes me feel better.

Elle Jewels Bracelet ($20)
Elle Jewels is based in Toronto and I've seen them pop up in a few subscription boxes now, which is fabulous! This is pretty gold-tone bracelet with a little gem and leaf (or feather?) charm. Charms have meaning, so the wearer could find inspiration in the charm. Read about charm meanings here.

The July Be Brave Box included five items, valued around $35. I was really impressed when I unboxed this collection. I could tell that a lot of thought went into selecting these products. Each item was chosen for a specific purpose, likely based on Taylor's own experiences. This is a great box for anyone living with a chronic illness, serious health condition, or recovering from surgery. You could buy it for yourself, or give it as a gift. I'm sure it will brighten the spirits of any recipient.

The next box ships September 15th, so sign up before then if you are interested.
