Over the last few years our lives were turned upside down with someone close being diagnosed with cancer. With that came bereavement which had a profound and far reaching effect on myself and everyone around me.
Grief isn’t something which had been experienced in our family in this way before this point, and with this I really noticed my mental health take a battering. Luckily I had amazing people around me that helped support me with the way I was feeling. Even though it wasn’t something I ever really wanted to talk about, I know it also effected others affected too.
So during this time, and after a number of family conversations about how life can affect people’s mental health we wanted to make sure no one else ever felt like they had no one around, and that is how Be Happy Box was born. We wanted to make it easy for someone to send a friend, relative or colleague a personalised way of saying “I am here for you”.
We have a lot of ideas & exciting things in the pipeline, but first of all we are launching the wellness box, bereavement box and Happy box for anyone needing a Smile in a box.
We are always open to hearing new ideas, or to look at possible partnerships with organisations and causes that share our values.
