bTizzy is an organization that supports people with disabilities (PWD) in a variety of different ways, one being the bTizzy pwdMEDLEY Club box.
Each month you’ll receive a box containing 1-2 handcrafted items created by bTizzy’s talented artisans with disabilities. Items can include jewelry, notebooks, glassware, wallets, accessories, and more.
Subscriptions start at $25/month for 1-2 items and you can choose to receive your box monthly or every-other-month. Subscribers can also choose boxes with additional items at the following rates: 2-3 items/month ($50), 3-4 ($100) or 4-5 ($150).
Let’s see what’s in my October 2015 bTizzy pwdMEDLEY Club box!
Everything was shipped in a big blue box with the colorful bTizzy logo on the side.
So many packing peanuts!
The enclosed envelope included information cards for each of the items and the artists who created them.
Stemless Wine Glasses ($24) – These 15-ounce stemless wine glasses were hand-painted by Tammy, a former art student who is now legally blind. She relies on her memory and intuition to paint the Native American inspired designs onto these custom, dishwasher-safe glasses. “Indian Pony” features a silver horse outline, while “Trail of Tears” has a copper-colored profile of a Native American man with tears running down his cheek. You can purchase these glasses individually in the bTizzy shop.
Artisan Perfume Holder Box Elder Burl Wood Keychain ($32) – Clement, an accomplished carpenter and homebuilder, was injured in a motorcycle which resulted in paraplegia. He now creates beautifully handcrafted, one-of-a-kind perfume holders (and pens) using high quality woods and fittings. The perfume holder shown above was made with box elder burl wood and 10k gold plated fittings. It includes a keyring, but you can also fasten it to a chain to wear as a pendant. The small vial allows you to bring your favorite perfume (or essential oil!) with you wherever you go.
Greeting Card ($2.95) – A handwritten note in the box let me know that this card was included as a bonus item. It’s drawn by Rose, a woman with autism, and is titled “Nobody died and made me a queen — I was born a queen!”. The card is blank on the inside and includes an envelope for mailing.
I love the fact that bTizzy employs people with disabilities and allows them to showcase their art through their monthly subscription. The items I received were all beautifully crafted and I enjoyed learning about the artisans who created them. The overall value was impressive too — just under $59 in products — more than double the cost of the monthly subscription!Browse more Indie and Artisan Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
