If you’ve been reading this blog since the beginning you may be getting sick of my name dropping Amy Zellmer. I’m going to praise her once more because she seems pretty awesome and has been doing a lot of great work for raising awareness about TBI.
I posted about her new book yesterday and today I want to shout out about her partnership with Healing Boxes in the U.K. Healing Boxes was created by Grace Quantok after a friend was in a car accident and conventional gifts didn’t seem to be special enough. Her product benefits those that need a smile during hard times and her profits benefit the community (read more in this article).
Amy Zellmer partnered with Grace and created a healing box for those with TBI. Recently Amy posted a video on Persicope while she opened her first healing box. It contained:
- notecards for keeping in touch with loved ones
- a journal for recording thoughts and symptoms
- an eyemask
- an ice pack
- a meditation cd
- a palm stone
- two bags of tea pigs peppermint tea
It looked lovely and I was stunned to see it was only $39.99 USD. As we watched her open each item and talk about it Jason and I remarked on how much he needed them (especially early on in recovery!) and how perfect the selections were.
