    Building joy-boosting kits to bring a little brightness

    Day 42

    Self-Care, Anywhere

    A little care package can go a long way. So, as a part of our joy-sparking Saturday in Action, we decided to create joy kits that can be used for a bit of much-needed self-care.

    We decided to create these little kits for our friends in Kenya, a group of LGBTIQ+ refugees. This is a twice marginalized group, living under the pressure of uncertainty and constant movement for safety.

    When you’re always moving around, it can be hard to find a moment to breathe. We wanted to send them something that might help create a little oasis, one they could bring with them wherever they go.

    Our friends in Minneapolis were up to the task! They pulled together notes of encouragement, relaxation oils, stress balls, art supplies, and other goodies to create a sense of calm. Inside each kit are the tools they’ll need to create a little bit of comfort, no matter where they are. Though these are just little things, we hope they’ll go a long way in making days brighter.
