We recently learned about another super sweet pediatric cancer charity called Boxes of Love. It is run by a teen girl who just wanted to do something nice (how cool is that?), so she started collecting really great toys and mailing them out. Now she takes donations and has a great big mailing list of kids awaiting their box of love.
I have been so inspired by the people who have stared things like this for cancer kids, but I am especially inspired by this teen girl, because she is so young and because she does all of this from her heart. I hope my daughters grow up to be caring and kind individuals, and I hope that maybe a little might rub off on me.
WHO WE ARE: Boxes Of Love
WHAT WE DO: Hi I am 16 and I started Boxes of Love. I send out boxes filled with toys, games, clothes and other items for children fighting cancer. I love the joy I get when I hear a child loves their box of love and that it gave them something to get there mind off off the cancer and put a huge smile on their face. That is why I am doing this.
HOW TO REQUEST A BOX: You can email her at email@example.com or visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VB9JSCQ
HOW TO DONATE: From her website: If you wold like to donate items for Boxes of love, any items for children ages 2 and up will be great. Email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She also loves to get e-gift cards sent to the same email addy. Cards most preferred from Kmart and Target, but also takes Toys R Us.
