About Us

We know that there is nothing more comforting than a Big Hug

The Big Hug Box is a not-for-profit charity who support and empower Australians facing a cancer diagnosis through carefully curated cancer care packages. 

Founded in 2018, our care packages are filled to the brim with thoughtful and practical products for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. Designed to feel like you're on the receiving end of a great big hug; each box is filled with products from Australian businesses, aiming to inspire a smile and help ease side effects of treatment. 

At The Big Hug Box we pride ourselves on delivering purposeful and high-quality cancer care packs that provide a unique and practical gifting option for customers and the community. Our Big Hug Boxes are unique in that we have collaborated carefully with oncologists, specialists, nurses and patients to select products that serve the purpose to uplift and provide comfort to anyone who is facing a cancer diagnosis or treatment. 

Available for purchase and donation, show your support by giving a practical and thoughtful gift to a loved one or colleague, or donate through our Random Hugs of Kindness program, surprising cancer patients across Australia with a package of comfort and care. 

With all profits from sales donated to vital cancer research, wellness and support groups, The Big Hug Box is also helping to improve support, treatments and outcomes for future patients, in addition to those who receive our care packages. For more information on who we've supported so far, visit our beneficiaries.
