Happy Hope Box Project
The Happy Hope Box Project is a turnkey volunteer project-in-a-box that can be shipped to any team nationwide.

Once packed, the bags are placed back into the Happy Hope Box and it is sealed and shipped using a pre-paid UPS shipping label. These boxes are sent to a local hospitals, hospices and non-profit partner.
Happy Hope Boxes typically take a team of 5 approximately 3 hours to complete. Larger teams will complete boxes faster, or order extra boxes for large team events!
Happy Hope Boxes are available for a tax-deductible donation of $500/each, which covers all supplies plus shipping to your location and to the recipient hospital.
Pop-up Happy Hope Factory
Experience the magic of the Happy Hope Factory through one-of-a-kind Pop-up Happy Hope Factory volunteer events scheduled to resume in the Fall 2021. These are inspiring days of service and teambuilding opportunities that welcome volunteers of all skill levels to assemble and package Happy Hope Bags. Each finished bag contains a number of activities to be assembled, created, or packed; volunteers at these events have the opportunity to rotate through stations, completing each component that will be eventually placed in a finished bag. The event concludes with a conga style dance and packing line where volunteers then assemble Happy Hope Bags using the products created during the event. All Happy Hope Bags are then shipped to a local hospital or homeless shelter benefitting children in need throughout the community.
We offer a Variety of Happy Hope Bags that your team can pack and send to your partner of choice. Bags are available for a tax-deductible donation ranging from $30 per unit.
To get started, tell us how many volunteers you will have, the amount of time you will have to pack Happy Hope Bags, and your budget. We will work with you to design an amazing day of service for your team!
For a truly turnkey event, Happy Hope Foundation team members will travel to you to assist on-site with all aspects of your day of service event.
