#WIN – everyone who posts an image on Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram of their buddy or one of the captioned Blurt images with the hashtag #BlurtBuddyBox, will be entered to win one of two annual BuddyBox subscriptions, worth £222. Two winners will be announced on Monday 15 June, 2015.
Launched on 1 June 2015, The Blurt Foundation’s new BuddyBox subscription box makes a thoughtful gift for anyone affected by depression. And if you’re living with depression, buying a subscription for yourself is a great way to enjoy a little self-care.
Every month, The Blurt Foundation will create a special box filled with things to help, inspire and comfort those with depression. Each box will have a different theme – for example, products and tips for a good night’s sleep or items to recharge the body and mind and each BuddyBox can be personalised with a special note for the receiver.
If you know someone struggling with depression, it can be difficult to show your support. Often a chat over coffee or an extra-tight hug is enough, but there might be times you want to do a little bit more. Depression can’t be treated with ‘things’, but these clever care packages will let a loved one know you’re thinking about them. And that’s a very nice thing.
“Depression can make you feel like a burden to those around you and there’s an inclination to withdraw from friends and family. When you feel someone withdrawing from you, it can be difficult to know how to bridge the gap. Seeing a friend or loved on suffer from depression is a challenge in its own right.” Says Jayne Hardy, The Blurt Foundation’s Founder and CEO. “You want to help but you’re not always sure where to begin. Finding the right words can be hard. A BuddyBox says so much – “I care about you”, “I’m here for you”, “you do matter”, “I’m sorry you’re struggling”, “you are loved”. It opens the channels of communication, letting someone know, you’re fighting their corner against depression.”
