According to the founder Tara,
During the pandemic I started a little home based business by creating keepsake boxes and purses from vintage cigar boxes...we got to talking about how nice it would be if every child had a happy box, and from there we decided “hey let’s make a bunch of happy boxes for sick children.”...Last Christmas and throughout this past year we donated over 400 Happy Boxes to “Kisses for Kyle” foundation, AtlantiCare clinic in Atlantic City for children in need, AtlantiCare Behavioral Health in EHT, CASA in Somers Point and getting ready to donate 140 more to Big Brothers Big Sisters for the Holiday season. Each box gets filled with toys,a lucky stone or shell, it is dabbed with lavender oil to promote calmness and cuts out the cigar odor as well…each box has a warrior poem inside, is filled to capacity with all the items I mentioned above and a Beanie Baby is tied to the tops of every box.
Tara's Happy Boxes are looking for people to "[sponsor] a happy box, dropping off gift cards to places like Dollar Tree, Five Below, Target or Big Lots or [drop] off toys, candy, socks, and/or gloves."
