The Happy Box Helps Children in Need
We love a story of good will to start off the new year, so this recent news from the lovely people at The Happy Box is warming our hearts. The Happy Hearts Giving Campaign was launched by co-founder of The Happy Box Jumana Al Darwish as the social responsibility arm in August 2015. For every Happy Box purchased, Happy Hearts donates a box to a child in need.
Jumana has teamed up with Joelle Mardinian for this special charity project that will spread happiness among disadvantaged Jordanian and Syrian Makanai children living as refugees in Amman, Jordan. Through partnering with the Jordanian chapter of Save the Children Jordan and under the sponsorship of leading property developer The First Group, Jumana and Joelle headed to Amman recently and taking hundreds of customised Happy Boxes - kits stocked full of elementary school supplies and activities - with them, to deliver among children at the Zaatari Refugee Camp, children studying at an informal education centre run by Save the Children Jordan and in partnership with UNICEF under the Makani initiative that provides informal education for children in need, and children at the Queen Rania Family and Children Centre (QRFCC).
Through a generous donation from The First Group, Jumana together with Joelle and dozens of volunteers will, over the course of three days, deliver a total of 1,600 boxes to disadvantaged children across Jordan. Lovely!
