"Chilli Studios gives me a sense of meaning and value"
Why are we Crowdfunding?
The aim of this Crowdfunder is help us develop a new commercial enterprise that can support the studio while supporting our core ethos - improving mental well being through self care and creativity. It was this understanding that lead to the develop the Chill out Box - a little slice of what makes the Studio special delivered direct to your door.
Chill out Box - a subscription box designed to help you do good, make good, feel good.
In the chaos of life, we often struggle to take time out for ourselves. Chill out Boxes have been designed to help you take some ‘me time’; containing everything you need to hit the pause button and allow yourself to be cared for.
There will be four different boxes available:
- Chill out Box - Based on a different theme each month, this box will be packed with mood lifting items that are thoughtfully chosen to encourage self care, relaxation and to make you feel good.
- Chill & Create - Everything you need to try a new craft or art medium. Complete with ‘how to’ videos to inspired new projects.
- Chill Art - Two original prints designed by either members of Chilli Studios or a guest Artist and three art cards exclusively designed by the Chill Box team.
- Chill out Box Lite - We believe good deeds should be rewarded so if you sign up to donate just £7.50 per month, we will send you three original cards that promote positivity or feature members artwork
All of the boxes will include a Zine full of well-being and creative tips, a healthy sweet treat and a drink so that when you receive your box, you can pour yourself a cuppa and enjoy a snack as you unbox your goodies.
Your contribution to this Crowdfunder will help us establish a business that can provide vital funds for Chilli Studios to continue the work they do supporting vulnerable adults. The boxes also provide you with some much needed love and positivity.
