THE STORY BEHIND THE SOPHIA BOX
On a difficult day several years ago, the postman knocked on my front door with a package. I wasn't expecting anything so I was surprised when I saw it had my name on. I took the package back to my bed, which I hadn't been able to leave for the past month. I pulled out a pretty box and was intrigued to hear it rattle with things inside. On opening the box I found it was packed full of lots of little treats; each clearly specially selected with the sole purpose of making my day a little easier and brighter. Overwhelmed with gratitude, I went on to open the small card I'd found at the bottom of the box. On reading the message inside, I burst into tears. When you can't leave the house very often, anything arriving through the post takes on greater significance. That package completely turned my day around and made me feel a lot less alone.
The incredible person who sent that package was Sophia. I don't think she'll every know how much that small act of kindness has meant. Especially now that it has gone on to inspire this very business which has been quite literally life changing for me. Her thoughtfulness and kindness brightened my day then and continues to now with every BearHug I send.
It breaks my heart that Sophia is currently very poorly with Lyme Disease. Despite the fact that she faces unimaginable levels of pain every day, there are no appropriate treatment options available to her in the UK. She is now having to fundraise to access treatment outside of the NHS. I'm desperate to help her however I can.
I couldn't think of a better way to do my bit than by building a BearHug in her honour. This gift box, The Sophia Box, is designed to match the original package Sophia sent me as closely as possible - I've tried to match every item like for like.
All profits from this gift box will go straight to Sophia's GoFundMe page here.
