We were recently introduced to an idea called a Sunshine Box. In a nutshell, you simply fill a bag or box full of yellow items and anonymously send it to a friend. The box is a bright happy gift for a friend who may have just lost a loved one, is dealing with illness, or just had a plain ol’ bad day.
You can fill it with anything yellow from Lay’s potato chips and polka dot dishtowels to lemon-scented hand lotion and fresh pears. As long as the item is yellow, you can toss it in. The box can be as simple or as complicated as you would like. Tie the box/bag up with yellow string, attach a tag, drop it off on your friend’s doorstop or pop it in the mail. Download our Sunshine Bag or Sunshine Box tag for the perfect sunshine box addition.
