Sponsor a BuddyBox
When you sponsor a BuddyBox, you donate your purchase to someone else – a stranger, not someone you know – who is going through a particularly difficult time and could really use a hug in a box. It’s really easy to do too.
Once you’ve purchased your ‘Sponsor a BuddyBox’, we choose someone who is having a horrible time of it – and send them the donated box. Both the sender and the recipient, are kept anonymous from each other but you can leave a note a checkout if you like and we’ll include it within the parcel.
When ordering, you just need to enter your shipping details – we’ll then pick out the order and identify someone who could do with a pick-me-up; that could be someone we’ve been chatting with on social media, someone who has emailed us, or sometimes we send boxes to mental health support groups to distribute.
Our Sponsor a BuddyBox Scheme is also a great way for your business to get involved, as part of Corporate Social Responsibility. If you’d like more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Here’s what people have said abut receiving their donated box:
“My mum and I are sat here in tears, so happy that there are some truly wonderful people in the world”
“I should very much like to thank [the sender] for [their] thoughtfulness and generosity which has truly touched me and made my day …. knowing that someone cares and there is a connection to the outside world is very reassuring . [They’ve] inspired me to also pay it forward as soon as I am able.”
“thank you so much for sending us some Buddy Boxes for the CAMHS Ward where I work! Can’t wait to use them therapeutically with our lovely young people.”
“The fact that someone cares enough to gift such lovely things […] is incredible and I am very grateful. Each time I use the items I will try to remember that people do care and that I can have nice things “just because”
