HOW BRIGHTBOX CAME TO BE
At a time when my husband was working on a startup of his own, we were living on savings and hardly had any extra to spend! I had a friend who had just lost her job of 15 years and was heartbroken. I wanted to show her I was thinking about her beyond just telling her, so I turned to Pinterest! A trip to the dollar store (hauling my two little kids) and a bag full of all things yellow later, I put together a fun "sunshine" box and left it on her doorstep.
What I didn't realize was how much joy it would bring me! Knowing this simple thing made such a difference to someone I care about meant the world to me. So much so that I found myself doing this for friends and family for various reasons - from something happy, like a birthday, to devastating, like a cancer diagnosis.
I also realized it didn't really matter what I gave. What we all want is to feel remembered. To feel loved. To feel connected to someone. They felt awesome! And so did I.
I want everyone to experience this! The JOY that comes to both people, in an easy, affordable way WITHOUT the hassle, time, and forgetfulness that keeps most of us from actually doing anything! So what are you waiting for? Send a smile today! Happily made and distributed from North Salt Lake, UT.
