We've been sending you fewer emails lately, but that doesn't mean we've lost momentum. Here's the latest news about The Soul Box Project PLUS ideas from supporters across the country to help us end the gunfire epidemic.

Thanks to our volunteers who’ve sewn display panels in their living rooms and basements during social distancing. We can use a few more Portland-area duos to make panels at home. Contact us to find out how to help.

Listen & Fold
Display Idea

Sherrill Terry, Decatur, GA, is catching up on her reading while folding Soul Boxes. She listens to audiobooks while she's helping reveal the gunfire epidemic. 

At a socially distanced Soul Box-folding event, Linda Loring, Cape Cod, MA, used garden flat cartons from her nursery to display Soul Boxes on tables. Any shallow box will do. Experiment and show your Soul Boxes.

Weekly Virtual Events

What, exactly, can you expect at our virtual gatherings? A lot of positive energy. We start with a centering exercise, a few deep breaths and the recognition that we’re coming together to do something good. Next, we go around the virtual “room” to introduce ourselves. 

If there are new Box-makers in our midst, we demonstrate how to fold a Soul Box and offer a LOT of encouragement to get that first one completed. Then, the conversation and creativity take over. No two sessions are the same. 

Come along and try us out! 

  • Open Studio - Wednesday, July 29, 4 - 5 pm (Pacific) - Fold with founder Leslie Lee. 
  • Folding in the Family - Monday, August 3, 10 - 11 am (Pacific) - Bring a family member! 
  • Open Studio - Wednesday, August 12, 4 - 5 pm (Pacific) - Fold with founder Leslie Lee.

Find out how to log on and see more details on our website. See you soon!
