With the current climate and the pandemic this project will help girls ages 10-17. Each girl will receive a positive box with items and challenges. This box will have items inside that will aid in their mental health. Many children are struggling with the isolation of social distancing and not feeling connected. This box will also include a craft and information on how to connect with someone else who has also received the box. The concept is this box will spread positive energy to girls who may be feeling down due to the pandemic or other life issues. After each girl has received their box a Zoom call will be held with a mental health professional explaining the items in the box and answering any questions. This will be open to girls throughout the country but limited the first 25 girls to sign up.
