Box of Hugs was created after trying to find an appropriate gift for a family member last year that was diagnosed with a life limiting disease. All I could find was the standard flowers which watching feeling like they are at a funeral and then watching them die is not something that I want to give to someone and gift baskets with candies and other sugary treats which as you all know, is the last thing that you give to someone that has a very serious condition.
I received my notice in the summer of 2016 that my full time job was being terminated in the fall due to downsizing. I was shocked and upset at first and then I decided that because there is not much of a selection for anyone going through cancer treatments, chronically ill, post surgical or someone or yourself just needs a pick-me-up gift then to put together care packages full of items that are made with natural ingredients, safe for everyone from babies to end of lifers and also includes practical items that will sooth and promote wellness.
I had always made homemade products for myself and my family so what better way to do something that I love to do than to share it with you. I live in the Niagara Region and there are so many amazing and talented crafters that I want to include specialty, unique products and items and best of all supporting local small businesses. Each crafters and artisans items that are in the care packages will have a link to their website if you want to purchase more of their items/products and Box of Hugs will promote their items/products on the Box of Hugs website and social media. Every little bit helps and if we can do a small part then it will increase as time goes by.
If you create a unique product or item that promotes health and wellness or knows someone that does, contact me at email@example.com
As the business grows, we will start to take a percentage of the sales and donate to local social residences in the Niagara Region to buy personal care items for those that cannot afford to buy. We all need to help everyone in need and Box of Hugs wants to be part of that.
