Grace was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 while living in Boston. Audrey, living in Detroit, felt an overwhelming need to “do something” for her friend in crisis but had no idea where to begin. Traditional gift shops didn’t have a single thing that felt truly thoughtful or helpful in any way. She googled, she asked around, she did some social media mindhive requests, and came up with some things that were meaningful as well as comforting. With Grace's newfound "expertise", they joined forces and decided to create a place to find meaningful, appropriate, personal, and purposeful items for those facing cancer. Because this is where the HumanKind Box story began.
We support small businesses.
We support survivor-owned businesses.
We support black-owned businesses.
We donate boxes as often as possible.
We donate time as often as possible.
This is more than ginger tea and fuzzy socks (although we love ginger tea and fuzzy socks). This is functional, practical, sometimes uncomfortable, but always necessary, gifts and self-love items for those who are facing cancer head on.
From one survivor to another. From one best friend of a survivor to another. From a spouse, mother, sister, co-worker, or daughter who has had to deal with the life-altering diagnosis of cancer and asked the question "what can I do to make this better?"
These are a few things that might make a terrible situation a tiny bit better. Or at least a little easier to deal with.
If you are looking for a gift for someone with cancer, you've found the right place.
