Loose Boxes


Making and exhibiting Soul Boxes locally is the best way to involve partners, make the issue local, and provide solace. But having examples—from 6 to 600—can be very helpful and reach your goal faster.

We may have some loose memorial Boxes for your state available. 

Shipment will include completed Soul Boxes that were bagged for the D.C. exhibit and may include a combination of 

  • Plain or embellished with art
  • Messages
  • Remembrances (names—may be requested by state while supplies last)
