- Wellness Giftbox, Sympathy
The first ARISE gift box was sent in December 2016 when Kristen Gold, our founder, wanted to support a friend who had lost a parent. Flowers, the traditional standby, didn’t feel like enough, and she was at a loss for words. Kristen wanted to send something that would comfort and support her friend through the grieving process. Having experienced the loss of a friend about a year earlier, followed by near burnout at work, she wanted to package up the self-care remedies that had worked for her during what felt like a downward spiral of hopelessness. During nights and weekends, Kristen is lovingly packing ARISE gift boxes out of her tiny NYC apartment. By day, she manages employee volunteer programs at EY.
ARISE aims to normalize discussing and facing life's lows. They all happen, we just don't talk about it - and it is during those time when we need support the most. Our gift box provides self-care tools to those who are navigating difficult times and our blog features stories of those who have experienced similar journies so others know they aren't alone. We proudly feature women owned and co-owned businesses made in the US and a percentage of sales are donated to Girls, Inc., a nonprofit inspiring and empowering girls.
