New Ways To Subscribe!

Anyone noticed some changes on our website? :)

We've updated our subscriptions, and you are now able to purchase Courage Box sets! These are organized like university semesters - Fall, Winter, and Summer.

Each set will include four months' worth of boxes. And great news! We're announcing our theme schedule beforehand. You can look at it here.

That's not even the best surprise, though. :) If you pre-order a Courage Box set, you will receive a free gift in each one of your boxes!...

We have officially set up our Gifted Courage Boxes program! :)

This means that Courage Boxes can now be donated to those who can't afford them. If you can't afford a Courage Box but would like to get one, you can sign up for our Waiting List here. No worries, you will remain anonymous. :)

Recently, the U of S published an article on their website describing Courage Box. You can read it here! :)

The U of S Help Centre has been kind enough to lend us their space a few times a month, allowing subscribers to pick up their pre-ordered boxes there. It helps U of S students save money on shipping!

We're hoping to set up similar pick-up zones at other universities around Canada. If you think your university may be interested, please send Shawn a message!
