- The Arianna Huffington GPS for the Soul Cube was created by Arianna to help free you from the stress of a hyper-connected life and regain that centered place within you.
The Arianna Huffington GPS for the Soul Cube features a selection of Arianna's favorite flavors – Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants, Almonds and Apricots in Yogurt, Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt and Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio + Antioxidants – and a portion of the sales of the cube will help KIND support the Committee to Protect Journalists, an organization promoting press freedom worldwide by defending the rights of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.
- The Bobbi Brown Eat Pretty Powerful Cube was curated by Bobbi to empower women to embrace and enhance their unique beauty, not only through the makeup they wear, but also the ways they choose to live, eat and give back.
The Bobbi Brown Eat Pretty Powerful Cube features Bobbi's four favorite flavors – Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, Cashew & Ginger Spice, Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan, and Madagascar Vanilla Almond – and a portion of sales of the cube will help KIND fund a new KIND Kitchen at the Broome Street Academy, a public charter high school that prepares New York City's most vulnerable young people to graduate with Regents diplomas.
- The Grace Potter Backstage Snack Pack was designed by Grace to remind people that eating well and doing good are key aspects of being a true 'rock star.'
The Grace Potter Backstage Snack Pack features Grace's go-to flavors – Peanut Butter & Strawberry, Almond & Coconut, Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants and Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt – and a portion of sales of the cube will help KIND support the Alzheimer's Association, the leading, global voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care and support, and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research.
"It was great partnering with KIND at the HuffPost Oasis to highlight the health benefits of unplugging and recharging. And I'm delighted to continue acting on our shared principles of healthy living, especially when it can benefit a great cause like the Committee to Protect Journalists," said Arianna.
"There's a lot more to beauty than what we apply to our face. Like KIND, I believe that it's about how you treat your body and what you put in it. When you eat healthy, it shows: your skin looks clearer, your eyes look brighter and you have more energy. It's as simple as that," explained Bobbi.
"I fell in love with KIND bars the moment I first met them! With my busy touring schedule, it is extremely important to have snacks that I can take with me anywhere, and that give me the energy I need on stage night after night. The simple idea of whole healthful foods in a delicious little package is music to my ears! KIND is always my go-to," said Grace.
Elle Stassen of KIND shares, "we are pleased and appreciative to have these partners on board for our first ever Snack & Give Back campaign, as they are each exemplary role models for what healthy living, eating, and giving should look like."
The limited edition cubes are available for $42.95 on www.SnackandGiveBack.co.
