Love Box

30 October 2019
Melanie Wright

What are Love Boxes? Love Boxes are thoughtfully filled boxes with art, toys, games, books etc. for kids and teens aged 2-18 who are in the hospital. We’re gearing up to fill Love Boxes for the holiday season to bring some cheer to kids and teens in the hospital over the holidays.

Love boxes were inspired by “Super Sophia” who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was nearly 2. Today Sophia is a healthy 9 year old and started the Super Sophia Project which gifts children in hospital with a Love Box to help uplift their spirits and to encourage them to never give up hope.

We would like to continue to spread her message of love, kindness, and hope this holiday season. The Love Boxes we are helping to fill will be delivered to kids and teens at Scarborough General Hospital.

If you’re able to help in any way, we’d appreciate it!

There are 3 ways you can help:
