Send It In

We Reached Our Goal of Exhibiting 200,000 Soul Boxes on the National Mall in D.C.

Thank you for participating in the Soul Box Project by making Soul Boxes and sending them in. We appreciate the donation of your time and expenses. Because of YOU we reached our goal for the D.C. exhibit in October 2021.

But our work is not done. Keep making Soul Boxes!

Making a Soul Box—the physical process of folding—is a valuable experience, whether you are folding for a specific loved one or gaining solace from some moments of reflection with productive hands at work.

We do encourage you to continue making Soul Boxes and to involve your community. More people in our country need to see and understand the scale of the gunfire epidemic. Soul Boxes you make now and in the future will continue these efforts.

  • Make and collect Boxes locally and plan an exhibit in your own town, church, library, school, museum, business, or community center. See examples on our Past Highlights page.
  • Give your display greater impact by borrowing display panels of 98 Soul Boxes. Look for a nearby Branch location with panels available to share.
  • No Branch nearby? Contact us about becoming a Branch of the Soul Box Project in your area.
  • Contact us if you have questions while planning your own exhibit or event.

Send in Your Memorial Soul Box
At this time, the Oregon home base of The Soul Box Project is no longer collecting Soul Boxes for displays. See our Soul Box Branch locations to find a Branch near you collecting Boxes with art, messages, or remembrances for new display panels under construction, or plain Boxes for backpacks used in marches and rallies.
