Invisible Cities, a social enterprise that trains people who have previously experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city, has launched an exciting new subscription box for would-be-adventurers! Created in collaboration with Strawberry Lemonade Events and Party in the Post, each box is themed on one country and is delivered straight to your door every three months.
Month one sees a curated box that aims to ignite sentiments of Scotland, the birthplace of Invisible Cities. For tiny travellers and eternal explorers, the first destination box includes:
- Invisible Cities World Tour Passport, where pioneers can collect stamps for all the countries ‘travelled’ through the subscription box (Scotland will be the first stamp)
- An activity book which includes a recipe card
- A Unicorn Cookie Cutter
- A colouring page and set of colouring pencils
- A unique Scottish game
- Exclusive story time with Paul (QR Code)
- A Scottish postcard
With inclusivity, compassion and most importantly community at heart, for every box purchased Invisible Cities will be donating activity books and games to children in temporary accommodation as well as those currently living through tough situations.
Zakia Moulaoui Guery, Founder & CEO of Invisible Cities CIC comments, “we believe everyone should learn in a fun and engaging way, no matter where they live, or what their circumstances. Through our boxes, we want to spark love for travelling in children and raise awareness of some of the issues countries are facing, whether that be homelessness or inequality. Each box is an adventure, it’s unchartered territory, it’s finding a second home – every child should get the opportunity to feel the excitement that brings.”
So, what do our voyagers think? “We loved the story from Paul. We really need to do his tour in Edinburgh!“ – Nicola (mum). “I’m really excited to be making cookies with my new cookie cutter. My favourite part of the box is the colouring sheet and I can’t wait to get my next box!” – Jessica (aged 8).
Each box will see games, gifts and unique items to collect, all themed around a new, must-visit country. Available for a one-off yearly subscription of £90 (for four boxes per year), or individually at £24.95, your round-the-world tour is just a hop, skip and a letter box away…
