Started in the summer of 2018, bobbox is a creative solution to a growing problem. The problem? Suicide rates continue to rise every year, and those who have been affected by suicide oftentimes cannot afford to seek the help of a mental health professional. Even those who don't end up committing or attempting suicide need help, and they either can't afford to get it or are too worried about what people think and/or don't think they deserve it. We think everyone should have the opportunity to get the help they need.
So what's the solution? Through our products, we hope to provide free mental health services to suicide survivors and their families that can't afford a counselor.
50% of proceeds will be donated to HeartSupport, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people in the music scene take care of their mental health. Through their various programs, they work with people suffering from anxiety, depression, loneliness, and suicide, among other things.
We plan to partner with other organizations with causes near and dear to our hearts, such as The Trevor Project, or specific organizations partner artists want to highlight. We're always looking to help where we can, so if you have an idea, send it our way!
Through our donations, we will be able to sponsor people to drastically reduce or completely cover their counseling costs. All of that, of course, depends on you.
We aim to grow our business and platform to provide as much help as possible through product sales, working with artists and musicians to further their goals, and creating products you can be proud to wear or use and bring awareness to our cause.
Inspired by the great work that organizations like To Write Love On Her Arms and HeartSupport have done for the positive shift in the mental health movement, we hope to provide real, valuable, life-changing help while delivering products you'll love.
Thanks for being here, for reading this, and for considering our products.
