About this project
Israel Box is an Israeli business founded on the idea of promoting Israeli products.
In recent years, we have been exposed to the growth of movements that encourage boycotting Israel by boycotting its products. Sadly, this greatly affects small businesses, which don't have enough power to market themselves around the world and compete with the boycott.
We are bringing the counterpart to these boycotts by means of our ibox - which is a new and modern way to support Israel. The ibox is a surprise box consisting of Israeli products, all for one's enjoyment.
We feel that people from all over the world need to enjoy Israel. It is a country with great people, a great atmosphere, great vibes, and all of these are reflected in its products.
The purchase of the ibox is an easy way to support Israel’s economy and enjoy all that Israel has in store, or as Israelis say, buy “Blue and White.”
Let Israel Box curate the finest of what Israel has to offer into one neatly wrapped experience for your convenience: the ibox.
The ibox contains the best Israeli products chosen out of thousands, all produced and/or designed in Israel. We test every product in advance in order to find the ultimate one.
The total value (five main products) of each ibox is about twice as much as the ibox price itself. So you can buy wisely, support Israel and enjoy great, high-quality products.
Our specialty ibox will let you hear, taste, see, smell and feel Israel.
The ibox will be shipped every two to three months (your choice) to all those who purchase a membership.
Join us in supporting Israel by purchasing a membership, and show the world that no boycott will deter us!

Select - Combine - Distribute
Step 1 - We plan on travelling all over Israel, from north to south, and searching for the best products out there. We want to give you the best experience every time you receive and open your ibox.
Step 2 - Each box will be assembled separately, with unique and enjoyable products that will stimulate your senses every time. We want to keep you on the edge of your seats every time you hear the mailman coming - hoping he brings the ibox with him.
Step 3 - Your ibox will be packed and shipped directly to your doorstep.

We invest our best brains to choose the right products for each ibox every time in order to make you experience the greatness of Israel again and again in the most extraordinary way. Never the less, we are open to hear your suggestions for any product you would like to get.
How many ibox's can i get?
If you want to buy some ibox's for your friends and family and send them the ibox as a present, You're more than welcome to do it. By pledging "YOUR BEST DECISION" pledge, set your pledge amount to be 65$ multiply the number of ibox's you would like and set the shipping to Israel(so you wont charge twice for the shipping 10$ charge). We pretty sure the ibox will be the best gift you ever gave…
Risks and challenges
The first ibox has already been made and each product is a great and useful one.
In order to overcome the shipping prices to the United States we need to begin the export once we have 1000 purchases of the ibox. Help us reach our goal!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
