Today we saw on OkCupid.com that they were not going to let FireFox users easy access to their site in protest to Mozilla’s new CEO’s views against equal rights for gay couples. A very impactful response and a post worthy to have an article on itself, but while finding this out we discovered a new idea that helps those not looking for love but dealing with the after effects of a failed love.
Japan’s Shitsuren Box, or in English—the Break Up Box aims to help those dealing with heartache of lost love while also providing assistance to pregnant women in less developed countries. Regular readers of New-Startups.com will know our affliction for Japan and the love we have for the unique ideas that come from this beautiful nation. The Shitsuren Box fills that exact same creativity we’ve come to love.
The product was designed by Brandear, is a box that gives one the essential tools to get over a break up. Along with a guide on how to get over an ex, the box also comes with a pack of tissues and bubble wrap to punch away the frustrations or anger that may be lingering. But for us beyond the little things to help get over love is what one can do with the emptied box.
The new singles can pack up an ex’s left behind items and place the given courier sticker on the package to be resent to Brandear. The retailer will then value the items and offer back funds for the items and then ship them to those in need within developing countries. Brandear then also donates toward reproductive health charitable organizations to help pregnant women in those countries.
The idea is to help get over heartbreak by also helping those in need. A great idea to help yourself and the world at the same time.
