June Brave Crate – Creation 💐

Everything Inside of the June Brave Crate!!!


Raise your hand if you’ve ever been told that “staying busy” is the best way to make time move quickly during your deployment countdown! We’ve all been there, with that age-old advice from a well meaning friend who probably doesn’t realize that most of us as military spouses are already overloaded and scheduled to the brim as we manage the fullness of life on the home side of a deployment. But, what if this advice to “stay busy” could actually mean embracing adventure, exploring creation and even developing a deeper sense of care for the world around us? And even better… what if this actually fit inside of our every day life?

This month the Brave Crate tribe is focused on embracing opportunities for creation as we count down to homecoming by focusing on caring for the planet, enjoying the world around us and creating beautiful things with our CREATION themed countdown box. This month’s Brave Crate includes every day essentials and fun creative projects to keep us focused on finding joy and embracing creation during this season of separation- both the creation around us and our own creations! Our hope is that everything inside of this month’s countdown box will inspire you to create something new and appreciate the beauty that nature has created for us as we count down to homecoming!

Summer Solar Phone Charger

PRO TIP: Never come between a milspouse and her phone during deployment. While you’re outside enjoying creation during your summer countdown, never get caught on low battery again! This solar powered battery works with a USB cable (and includes a mini-USB for your favorite tech tools!). Drop it in your beach bag or hiking pack for a quick on-the-go charge, so you never miss the next call!
