Facing Cancer with Kindness on Random Act of Kindness Day 2019



The Big Hug Box is encouraging individuals and organisations to join them in becoming “RHoK Stars” for Random Act of Kindness Day on the 17th of February 2019 .

 In becoming a RHoK Star, you will be donating a Random Hug of Kindness (RHoK) Box, a box filled with specially selected products to help someone facing treatment for cancer. Together with the social workers of The Chris O’Brien Lifehouse your donation of a RHoK Box will be given to someone who may just be coming to terms with their diagnosis, travelled from out of town to receive treatment, away from their families and friends. A perfect distraction amongst the challenges of treatment for cancer.

It is really a small act with a big impact to the patient and the perfect gift that you can give for someone enduring chemotherapy or radiation. Lorainne, Manager of Volunteer Services, Chris O’Brien Lifehouse shared with us -

 “To take this person a RHOK box with all its little treats, and explain to them that someone donated this box of kindness for a patient brings emotion and it sure is a warm hug for them. The act of kindness speaks to them and can change how they’re feeling at the time and the beauty of the world. This is the end game of all the hard work you do – that moment of surprise and joy when a patients receives a RHOK and they feel connected to that care”

Also, all proceeds from sales will be going directly back into supporting our cancer researchers supported by Cure Cancer. This will be The Big Hug Boxes 4th delivery overall.

So, grab your team or a group of friends and become one of our RHoK Stars by purchasing a RHoK which is $65 or a Mini RHoK for $25. We have made it really easy for you to show you care and can’t wait for you to join our community, RHoK Boxes are available for purchase on our website www.thebighugbox.com
