Spread the JOY

What We Do

What is in our Joy Boxes?

Joy Boxes are expertly designed by child life specialists, therapists, parents, and, most importantly, children. Each Joy Box contains thoughtful materials to make a child’s hospitalization memorable and fun.
Examples of items in Our Joy Boxes hold:
  • Imaginative arts and crafts activities

  • Simple origami to calm minds

  • Inspirational quotes to lift spirits

  • Painting materials

  • Seasonal decor

  • Top secret “Joy Missions”

  • Silly jokes and riddles
  • Would-You-Rather dilemmas to keep families laughing!
The specific items in our Joy Boxes vary from month to month based on the donations we receive––but we guarantee that every single box we deliver is bursting with joy!

What are the goals of the non-profit?

Simply to soften the traumatic experience for children admitted to the hospital by providing an engaging, distracting care package. We put together what we thought were joyful items accumulated through in-kind donations and hand-delivered them to hospitals. Today, our “Joy Box” contents have been vetted by psychiatrists, physicians, and hospital staff to ensure its contents are therapeutic and educational––and, of course, fun!

100% Clinician Approved

We test our program against the 5 pillars of patient experience. We are proud to say that our Joy Boxes and Feel Better Bags are 100% clinician approved!
