Comments from Soul Box Participants

The Soul Box Project is a good way to stop and reflect on a big problem that is plaguing America and has been for many years. It made me feel hopeful. —Alex, 10th grader, Bronx, NY

When I first saw a display of the Soul Box Project, I was so in awe of what perfect combination of art and activism it was. When I started folding boxes, I realized how therapeutic it was to have an activity in which to channel my frustration about gun violence in our country.Laura, art therapy graduate student, Reno, NV

Folding Soul Boxes has helped me during this very difficult time in our country’s history. It was important to me that I could do something positive by commemorating the victims of gun violence. Folding the boxes and writing the names is a time of prayer and meditation. —Tessa, Shoreline, WA

Thank you for involving so many kind hearts in creating these boxes, each representing hope for a less violent tomorrow. —Gerry, Salem, OR

Provide Financial Support

We are grateful for our many generous donors and we have been awarded several major grants. Still, we are short of our budgeted goal.

Your support in the next few months is critical to make Soul Box events a reality. When statistics become something that can be seen and felt, a moment of clarity can result that could save a life.

Make a Box. Send it in. It Counts.

The Soul Box Project set an ambitious goal of collecting 200,000 Soul Boxes to exhibit on The National Mall in D.C. and to use in traveling exhibits around the country. We are in the final stretch! Please gather your family, friends, clubs and organizations to fold Soul Boxes.

Our greatest need now is for unadorned Soul Boxes to hold space for unnamed victims.

Your voices will join thousands of others who are saying, “Enough!” It’s a peaceful way to take meaningful action.
