The goal of The Jared Box Project is to lift the spirits of chronically ill children. The boxes symbolize the importance of play and are filled with well wishes, hope, and love.
1. Purchase a shoebox size plastic storage box.

2. Print labels for your box: Purchase standard 2" by 4" mailing labels. Each page contains labels for 5 Jared Boxes. You can also create your own with index cards and packing tape.

3. Affix the labels to the plastic storage box. Affix the Girl/Boy label on the end of the box. Affix the Jared Box label on the center of the top lid.

4. Decide if the box you are making is for a boy or a girl, and select an age group. Use a marker and check off your choice on the Girl/Boy label.

5. Fill your box. Suggested items include: crayons, markers, coloring books, writing journals, word searches, Matchbox cars, card games, puzzles, silly-putty, Play-Doh, bubbles, stickers, fun costume jewelery, and small toys. No food, used items, or hair products please.

6. Print Jared Box Project Explanation cards.

7. Personalize: Write a note or draw a picture, and sign your first name. You can make this out of construction paper or use a notecard. Place the card in the box.

8. Deliver: Refer to our Hospital Directory to choose a hospital to receive your Jared Boxes.

9. Send the Jared Box project an email to let us know how many boxes you made and to what hospital you are delivering them. We'd love to receive stories about your project, suggestions and/or pictures too.
