About Us

Spreading joy, one Joy Box at a time!
We created a movement that surprises hospitalized children by delivering Joy Boxes to their bedsides. Our activity kits are filled with therapeutic arts-and-crafts to lift their spirits through play. Our hope is that we can change the emotions associated with pediatric illness to more positive and purposeful ones, and our vision is to one day welcome every hospitalized child in America with a Joy Box or a Feel Better Bag.

Our Impact

We are intent on bringing joy to as many hospitalized children as possible – with your help.

Hear from the hospitals!

I don’t even know how to put into words how much our patients have been loving the Joy Boxes. I am so lucky to get to be on the giving end because it feels so good to see the smiles on those little faces.

Filled with items that target the developmental and emotional needs of our patients, providing distraction, creativity and comfort, the boxes are perfect for our patients during COVID-19.
