November 2013: Editor’s Letter

Let’s get something out in the open: We know More Good isn’t exactly proper grammar. But when we (both Birchbox and Birchbox Man editors) were searching for a way to characterize this month’s theme, we kept coming back to the phrase. After all, what is November about if not more of the good stuff? That means giving back and giving to others, but also giving in to indulgences like delightfully sparkly products and holiday treats (my perennial favorite: ginger molasses cookies).

In honor of this, we’ll be teaming up with two incredible charities this month. Our Birchbox Men will be raising money (and growing ‘staches) for Movember, while Birchbox as a whole is making a $25,000 donation to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry®, which is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.

We’ll also be bringing you plenty of ideas for how you can boost the good in your life, from a roundup of our favorite give-back beauty brands to five easy ways to increase your happiness and a video series with the amazing beauty editors from InStyle magazine. And don’t forget our Birchbox Holiday Guide—it’s jam-packed with covetable presents, DIY inspiration, party tips, and more. Here’s to making the most of this merry season!
