In a time when everything was being shutdown and we were all being told to ‘stay indoors’, we felt that it was important that the goodness of giving wasn’t forgotten.
So we started karibu, the business that makes a way for you to give great gifts.
We set up shop in Benji's Grandma's house in Bath (lockdown meant that she was stuck abroad!) and things took off!
Since then, we've sent thousands of gifts, rented a proper office in Lancaster and learnt a whole lot of lessons. When it came time for James to move on, Benji called on an old friend from University (Jordan) to take the helm and keep karibu growing.
Our gifts are curated using products sourced from some of the best independent makers and businesses. Each of them has a real care for their craft and a story to tell.
And because we think that the world is better when we give, we give 10% from the sale of each box to good causes that make our world a better place.
We decided to start Paper Round.
A good news story sent out on a Monday (because even we find Mondays a bit of a drag…!).
It might be a reflection from one of our friends, a story from one of our suppliers, or a lesson we’ve learnt.
Whatever it is, we’ll make sure it’s good news!More Stories
