At the core of the BOXT ethos is giving back – socially and to the planet – and we are so excited to announce our newest BOXT Gives Back partnership with Teri Tkachuk, founder of STELLARGIRL, and her favorite cause, Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs in Appleton, WI. Harbor House is the largest safe shelter for women and children in the state and its purpose is to break the stigma of abuse, offer refuge to survivors, and create pathways to empowerment.
Because STELLARGIRL is a movement, a community and a brand that inspires, supports and STELLARBRATES women; and because we want women everywhere to know their worth, shine bright and embrace their own beautiful, Teri feels that Harbor House is the perfect partner.
“I am thrilled to be partnering with BOXT in its BOXT Gives Back program, working alongside BOXT founder, Sarah Puil, who is a brilliant STELLARGIRL. She created a company from scratch, pursued her idea of re-inventing wine in a box, raised 3.5 million in three months and DID IT! Her mission of changing the way we all enjoy a glass of fine wine from home with a simple membership based program accompanied with your own concierge to assist you along the way is simply genius!” says STELLARGIRL founder, Teri Tkachuk.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, BOXT and Sarah are featured on the Speaking STELLARGIRL podcast, out this week, where the two founders discuss Sarah’s journey and how being a female founder of a company, a foundation or a movement is about micro change and how that looks different for everyone.
As Sarah says in the podcast, “You have to sometimes meet people where they are, so that they can be heard and seen by you so that you can take a step forward, and that step forward is progress as opposed to comparing. Micro movements make up change.”
Early on, Sarah recognized a need in the marketplace to foster diversity, equity, environmental stewardship and social good. “We’re reimagining the way we all enjoy a glass of wine at home, but we are so much more than that. We have the opportunity and the responsibility to show up and not only create an incredible experience with BOXT, but to do it in a way that creates sustainability and positive social impact. The best way we can do that is to extend our reach by partnering with other incredible organizations doing good in the world and give back by creating relationships and community around shared values and helping others,” she says..
BOXT Gives Back partners with friends, influencers, nonprofits and other organizations and donates a portion of all sales on behalf of their partners’ chosen charities or causes. To learn more and start your own give back program, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
