The Little Box of Hope is a self care box to inspire mental well being, containing an amazing indie book & small business made gifts

by Bex Hughes in Westgate On Sea, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

We'd love to double the number of copies of How to be Hopeful that we're able to donate to local charities to distribute, and if we reach our new stretch goal we will donate 20 copies of the book. You can still add to that total by pledging for the 'buy a book' reward and buying a copy for us to add to the number we're donating.


The last year has been hard on everybody's health, both physically and mentally. Lockdowns and being far from family and friends have taken a huge toll on all of us, and we all need something to bring some hope. If you're looking for something to help you make space and develop hopeful practices, this is the box for you!

The Little Box of Hope is a beautiful box of hopeful, inspiring things centred around an incredible book that's part memoir, and part instruction manual on how to cultivate hopeful practices to help us all feel better, more positive and more hopeful. In the style of our usual quarterly boxes we will be curating beautiful and useful gifts inspired by the book to include in the box, and each of these will be made by a UK based small business. Now more than ever small business and independent publishers need our support, and we hope this box will help to inspire both the recipients and the suppliers. We will be including all sorts of Ninja extras in the box itself from playlists to recipes and lots more, and will have lots of interactive content for those who would like to have a way to feel more connected. 

Why

We've decided to run this box as a crowd funder after lots of thought, because we felt it was important to create a space to bring people together as the focus of the box is self care. Running a crowd funding campaign enables us to add in stretch goals if we reach certain funding targets, as well as providing backers with exclusive additional content in the form of interviews, discussions and lots more soon to be revealed things. 

Rewards

We have brought together a wonderful array of different rewards, so whether you're interested in getting the box itself or you want something smaller (or bigger!) we've got lots of exclusive and lovely things for you. A couple of the rewards we're offering are limited time only offers - one in the first week of the campaign and one in the last week, so make sure you're following the project to receive all the updates! 

This box is the second instalment of our Little Box of Calm, a box created as a space to bring together books that help us understand and care for our mental health, and gifts that help us look after ourselves both physically and mentally. Our busy, noisy world needs places of quiet and reprieve and we have designed these boxes to be that for our wonderful book loving community. 

All of our boxes are packed in recycled and recyclable packaging and are vegan friendly.
