Life Out of the Box, according to founders Jonathan and Quinn, started with a dream to travel the world, live their ideal lives and make the world a better place. Of all the many things that we talk about on this show, this is the story I’m most interested in: How to see the world and make a lasting impact?

Quinn and Jonathon left California for Nicaragua with nothing but a bag on their back and a desire to make something. While there, they worked with local educational non-profits and artisans to launch a project they were calling Life Out of the Box, a lifestyle brand of clothing and accessories.

For every product sold, Quinn and Jonathan give school supplies to a child in need. The customers even gets to see the exact child they’ve helped after a purchase has been made through the website.

Since launching in November 2012, Life Out of the Box has taken them to Nicaragua, Guatemala and Morocco and brought thousands of school supplies to kids in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, Morocco and Kenya.
