Each box will also highlight a FEATURED PARTNER and May’s FP is none other than Ms. Crystal Randolph, owner of The Burning Wic, a veteran, woman-owned small business local to us here at the DMV area (DC-Maryland-Virginia). She made these beautifully scented candles (my favorite scent from her Collection) especially for our first box! I am so happy that I get to share this moment with her as she has been a huge supporter of the Building Bridges Box from the start. Thankful for a community of supportive business besties!



The First Edition Box Theme is “Bloom where you are planted” and the insert cards can be used to display on your desk or frame and hang where you can see it everyday as a reminder. Flip the card over and you will see some recommendations on how you can repurpose your #BBBox! We at Building Bridges LOVES to upcycle so please share with us on how you are repurposing your box 🙂

    Thank you for the beautiful box! I can’t wait to use the affirmation cards especially, it’s like you knew exactly what I needed! The presentation was beautiful, and I feel like it’s a mini gift to myself.
