“Hope – being optimistic for a future outcome”
We all hope that things will turn out well for those we care about who are suffering from illness, pain, grief, in fact any challenging situation. Often we don’t know what to say to someone in those situations. For that reason, we have put together our little blue box of hope to provide comfort and support. An eye therapy mask which is relaxing and cooling, sweet dreams aromatherapy oil to aid sleep, a small sample of Inis Energy of the Sea perfume to uplift and our mini caramel sea salt chocolate bar for pleasure. Additionally we have included Cloud Meadow wild flower seeds by Seedball – “Where flowers bloom so does hope”
This box is being launched on our first anniversary which is 14th November. The happens to also be World Diabetes Day. Type 1 diabetes affects 400,000 people in the UK, with over 29,000 of them children. It is an autoimmune disease and is not caused by poor diet or unhealthy lifestyle. The UK has one of the highest rates of type 1 diabetes in the world, for reasons that are currently unknown. Someone with type 1 diabetes will have around 65,000 injections and measure their blood glucose over 80,000 times in their lifetime.
For every Hope box sold, Friendinabox will donate £1 to JDRF. JDRF funds research to cure, prevent and treat Type 1 diabetes. It also provides invaluable support to those diagnosed with Type 1 and their families.
Hello Jane, I just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you for creating friend in a box. I simply love it! Having sent a few boxes out to my friends this year I was pleasantly surprised to receive the tea and biscuits box, out of the blue from one of my closest friends. It absolutely made my day and the letter inside was so lovely I admit I shed a little tear (happy tears).
I was googling sympathy hampers for my friend who's mum died recently. Friendinabox came up. I looked through and found your tea and sympathy box. Then saw the woman power box as my other friend had just had a break up and her business was taking a dip. I just thought they were both perfect!
