The VIP Community
I wanted to share my absolute favorite part of ZOX with you: The community.
One thing that's incredible about being an online - based brand is that our reach is global. In fact, ZOX are now collected in over 180 countries around the world.
In 2012, we started a small group on Facebook called ZOX VIP - it was our way of having a more personal touch with everyone who was collecting the pieces we make. The interesting thing about this community, however, is that it grew to be much more personal than that. Over the past 9 years, this community has grown to over 20,000 members from all around the world. While ZOX is the icebreaker that allows them to meet one another, a shared love of kindness, compassion and empathy is what really makes it special. I've seen hundreds of new friendships form from folks all around the world who would never have met one another without ZOX. I've seen countless cases of people going through a hard time having their day's made brighter when care packages from other community members arrive. From penpals to meetups (like the photo above from the last one we did in the Netherlands!), I promise you, this group has earned its nickname of 'the nicest place on the internet.'
I recently asked the members of our VIP group to share what it means to them - here's a few of my favorite responses:
"I’ve found some friends I’ve never have without jumping into Zox VIP. Reading stories, finding a common interest, then talking more by text or messenger has caused those distant people I didn’t know to be part of my inner circle. I reach out to them when I’m struggling, or just want to share something funny. They are there with advice, encouragement, a good joke, or sometimes just good company. Zox has become so much more than just a wristband to me!!!"

"This group is a big family. You could post something, and you could have never talked to that person before, but they’ll still treat you like a family member."
- Deion H.
"I’ve only been a part of this community for 5 or so months, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The amount of kindness that I see EVERY DAY, is astonishing to me. I’ve made friends just from liking the same things, or being two very impatient funny people. No matter what, this community is my home, and everyone gets accepted with open arms."
- Melanie S.
"I regularly find myself wishing other products I buy frequently had a similar group to enjoy, because calling Zox a community is such an understatement. It's really fantastic to be able to click on the group and escape the daily grind of a less than positive news feed."
- Danielle M.
"Only just discovered Zox and I just can’t buy enough. They all have such a massive impact, the words are well thought out and the community on VIP is something I’ve never experienced before. Strangers gifting, helping and just being encouraging to those in need of kind words and support. I love being a part of something really special. Thank you to all of you. You are amazing!"

Here's the best news: You're automatically invited to join our group after your very first order - it's our way of welcoming you to the family.
See you soon!
