Koullouna: Connecting Lebanese Expats with their Roots
‘Koullouna’ is a project that focuses on connecting Lebanese expats to their home, and on giving them a way to contribute to its development from afar. The concept behind this project is pretty simple and exactly what we need: I have been living in Montreal for the past five years and as much as I try to feel connected to Lebanon, I still feel pretty far! So, this subscription box aims at giving expats a sense of belonging to their community as well as nostalgia!
‘A box specially made for Lebanese-lovers far far away’ – 🇱🇧
What makes this box so special?
- The products are made in Lebanon: whether the box contains books, goodies or decorative items, each and every product is created by Lebanese artists with a story or message behind them. What makes it even more interesting is the fact that the theme changes every month, which brings us to point 2!
2. The Initiative of the Month: it highlights a project that has a positive impact on the country; It gives expats an opportunity to help from afar and raises awareness on the positive local initiatives happening back home. Moreover, part of the cost of the box is dedicated to the initiative of the month!
This month, the crowdfunding campaign has already begun and they have already hit 60% of their target within the first 24 hours!
I already love the idea of subscription boxes, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard of this ALL-LEBANESE one! This will surely make you feel closer to home and will help you support Lebanese artists as well as contribute to our economy and to other social causes! I wish the team the best of luck with this project, and I hope it takes off worldwide 🙂
