Introducing: Diana with The Be Nice Box

hi everybody!
my name is diana and {like you}, i am a minnesota blogger!
i live in minneapolis with my cute partner blake and our really naughty {seriously, shes always paws-deep in shenanigans..} rescue pup, daphne.

i really love riding my bike, going to the library, eating dessert & listening to the backstreet boys.

also on my list of things i love?
being really nice.
{well, i try..}

they say we are 'minnesota nice', right?!
{cuz we are!}

i run a two-part business ; totally based around kindness.
part 1 : a blog ; called 'a year of minnesota nice.'
part 2 : a monthly-subscription box service called 'the be nice box.'
{want to hear more?!}

the blog : 
after the boston bombings last april, i made a commitment to complete 365 acts of kindness and then document them. you can check out the list, here. so far, i am about 160 days in & it has absolutely changed the way that i look at the universe. 
some of my favorite good deeds so far : 

we pulled a dog from doggy death-row {and then found her a forever family a week later!!}

held a kindness flashmob downtown {we handed out 60 bouquets of flowers to total strangers!}

and gave folks free bike rides

and the business!
the be nice box is a monthly subscription-box service, encouraging others to spread their own kindness! you can think of it as a 'random acts of kindness toolkit' that you receive in the mail each month.

every month, there is a new theme & we give $1 from each box to charity. each box contains a list of 12 good deeds you can complete throughout the month, 4 rad, handmade items to help you complete some of the tasks and a cool gift for YOU for helping to spread the good!
we also offer gift, 1, 3, 6 & 12-month subscriptions!

it has been so amazing to watch total strangers come together & create change! i feel so inspired every day {even on days when im crabby!} to complete a small act of kindness to brighten someone elses day!

you can check out our website here. {there will be 70 boxes in march & there are only 26 spots left!}
also, if you are an artist & would like to partner up, let me know! we are always looking for creative humans that want to help change the world!

thanks for reading, everybody!
