Box of Good is just me, trying to fund-raise for my kid's hockey team. The idea our fundraising committee has is to package donated new items (from local businesses and craftspeople) or lightly-loved items we're ready to pass on to others into boxes that we can sell online or in our community at the rink. Rather than spend all our fundraising efforts selling people stuff they don't want (how many chocolate bars does Grandma REALLY want?) or can't use, we thought we would try something different. Kind of like a garage sale -- but just online. For those businesses that donate goods to our team, we'd like to include a bit of information about the company, too -- especially if the business is local. We'll probably set up a Facebook store or something and each time we have a new box, we'll share it socially. In Canada, we also use Kijiji quite a lot, so we'll try that avenue as well.
We will use recycled boxes or kraft paper boxes as packaging, and we are thinking that some kind of stamp or sticker can help us make the box a bit of a brand. "Box of Good" has to be on the sticker, but also a line for a "fill-in-the-blank" so we can make any box fun -- for example, Box of Good Fun; Box of Good Warmth; Box of Good Times; Box of Good Memories; Box of Good Hair -- etc.
We love bold colors, but think that the logo should be all one color, and black will look nice with kraft-colored packaging (brown paper packaging). As I said, it might work as a stamp on a hangtag, could get stamped directly onto the box itself -- or even made into a one-color sticker. You could design inside a circle or a square or a rectangle!

We love the ones that are simple the best. Must be gender-neutral (script-fonts don't belong here).
