Each box is filled with products created by female artisans and

women-owned businesses. Every item is hand selected by us
at The Passionistas Project. Many will be sourced from women
we interview on our podcast and all will be included with the
goal of inspiring you to follow your passions.

Passionistas Pasttimes

The theme this quarter is PASSIONISTAS PASTIMES.
We had been planning the contents of this box since we launched
in the fall of 2019, but now it seems more relevant than ever. Whether we are still staying indoors or are enjoying a more
typical summer, this box is filled with products to help you
occupy your time in joyful, inspiring ways.



The Summer Box Is




Billie Best writes the blog Beyond 60 — Loving Life, Staying Relevant. She was born in 1954 in Illinois and spent most of her childhood in rural farm country.  Billie became a city girl in 1972 when she moved to Chicago, then on to New York City and Boston where her career traversed waitressing, the music business, retail and marketing communications. In 1999, she moved back to the country and lived on a farm in Massachusetts. Billie took off for the city again in 2017, landing in Portland, Oregon, where she began to write as  if her life depended on it. Billies' book How I Made a Huge Mess of My Life (or Couples Therapy with a Dead Man) is included in the summer box.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of each Passionistas Project Pack will be
donated to a charity.This quarter, we will be donating to  Oregon Tradeswomen.

Oregon Tradeswomen promotes success for women in the trades through education, leadership and mentorship. They were founded in 1989 on the principles that women deserve and can attain economic self-sufficiency by pursuing careers in the construction, manufacturing, mechanical and utility trades while helping and encouraging the trades industry to build a diverse workforce. Twenty-nine years strong, Oregon Tradeswomen offers innovative trades-based training programs, trades awareness activities and technical assistance to organizations seeking to be inclusive of women in their trade occupations. They offer professional and leadership development for tradeswomen, promote the skilled trades as a highly desirable career path for women and girls and have earned the respect and support of trades industry employers. Respect, excellence, equity, community and empowerment are the values reflected in all of their programs and services.

“I support Oregon Tradeswomen because it prepares women for success in occupations that provide long-term economic self-sufficiency. With education, leadership and mentorship, women are strong candidates for jobs in construction,

manufacturing, mechanical and utility trades. Oregon Tradeswoman creates opportunities

for women to earn and excel in highly desirable career paths so they can provide for

themselves and their families.”— BILLIE BEST, AUTHOR
