We’ve had an overwhelming response to the campaign, and we have given out all of our boxes! There are over 2,500 Blessing Boxes being filled right now in our community. Boxes are in over 50 different schools, places of worship across the spectrum, small businesses, government offices, charitable organizations, and and individual homes across the city.
We are moving on to Phases 2 and 3 of the project, which will begin in late April. Sign up below to be notified when and where these events will occur.
If you would like to contribute to our ongoing efforts to bring kindness and compassion to our community there is a PayPal link and further information below the contact form.
We’ve had several people inquire about how they can help fund this effort. It costs us roughly $5 per box with paper, pen, and stickers. So for 1,500 boxes we needed to raise $7,500. We have reached that goal. We continue to get inquiries for boxes so we are still accepting donations to cover the costs of any additional boxes we need to supply. Our goal is to provide a box for everyone who wants one. We’re not stopping at 1,500. We welcome all support. We are not yet a non-profit, so Children and Family Services Center has kindly agreed to be our fiscal sponsor. This means they are accepting donations on our behalf and will direct the funds to cover the costs of the Blessing Box Campaign. All donations are fully tax deductible. If your donation is over $250 you will receive a letter confirming your donation for tax purposes. If your donation is under $250 your Paypal receipt will serve this purpose. You may donate via Paypal and credit card using the link below. If you prefer to make a donation by check, please make the check payable to Children and Family Services Center, with AboutFace CLT in the memo. Checks can either be given to an AboutFace team member, or mailed to:
1955 Sharon Lane
Charlotte, NC 28211
Please be sure to include your email and mailing address so we can send you your tax letter. (And a Thank You note!)
Thank you so much for joining us in this campaign!
