Starting this month, OuiPlease has become more than a subscription box service delivering everything from French cheese-paper to Parisian jewelry to your doorstep. (If you don’t know about the Dallas-based company, Paris-native Jessica Barouche personally vets full-size French products sourced from under the radar brands. It’s wonderful.) In addition to receiving imported jewelry, beauty, gourmet foods, apparel, and accessories curated by a team of in-the-know French influencers, clients of the Dallas-based subscription service will also be able to give back.
Here’s How It Works
Once subscribers receive their OuiPlease box (and stow away their new luxury goods), they can fill it back up with new items from Genesis’ requested supplies list. The box comes with a prepaid shipping label, so all subscribers have to do is drop it off at their nearest post-office and wish it bon voyage on its trip to Genesis Women’s Shelter.
A Focus on Self Care
Instead of typical donated items, such as canned food and old coats, the team at Genesis Women Shelter had something else in mind. The approved list includes self-care goodies like sleep masks, essential oils, and blank journals. “When a woman walks away [from domestic abuse], she needs food and shelter, but she also needs a face mask,” said Genesis Women’s Shelter CEO Jan Langbein.
More About OuiCare
When Maddy Paul, now a junior marketing communications associate at OuiPlease, was an intern at the company, she suggested the company take on a meaningful cause. “It was very important to us to give back to women in need, because we are a female founded company,” Paul says.
Barouche, OuiPlease’s founder and CEO, has kindly made giving Americans the low-down on all things French living her passion. She usually helps clients incorporate a bon vivant attitude in their lives, but with this project she wants them to incorporate bénévolat,
Ultimately, OuiPlease plans to expand their OuiCare program, partnering with women organizations to spread more “Boxes of Hope” around the country.
