These past few weeks we featured some of the great do-gooder companies we partner with! Hear about our new and exciting partnership with Ship Sunshine created by Anna Costello!
What inspired you to create Ship Sunshine?
When I moved to Colorado, there were many times I wanted to let friends back home know I was thinking of them but I wasn't quite sure what to send. I wanted to do something more than a card and more personal than flowers. My budget and time were limited and I just couldn't find many options. I wanted to be able to send the equivalent of a hug in a box - things that would make people smile and feel cheery. So, I built Ship Sunshine to do just that. My goal is to make it easy to brighten someone's day and celebrate the little and big things in life.
One of the reasons I wanted to start my own company was so I could insert my own values into it. Every Ship Sunshine box is hand-packed with eco-friendly materials, we donate proceeds from our boxes to a person, charity, or cause, we're collecting school supplies and toiletries for those in need, and we're totally open to more possibilities!
Why do you partner with Artisans Thrive?
I am truly inspired by Artisan Thrive's mission. I love that their approach is to help women entrepreneurs around the world hone in on their skills and expand their reach. Their model and training program is so well thought through and impactful to women artisans.

Six months since the graduation of the Mujeres con Vision, we have continued to work closely with the group and monitor their progress!
After the graduation, the women found themselves putting their skills to work quickly as they had a few orders lined up for World Orphans, our partner in the development of this cooperative and who continue to play a vital role in assisting with the functioning of the cooperative.Read More
