Spoonie Box was created FOR spoonies, BY a spoonie. When I first became ill and the people in my life didn't know what to say or do to help, the thought came to me that it would be great to have something that they could just send me to say "I get it, and I care" without so many words. At the same time, I also wanted to see myself represented in a marketplace that didn't see, (let alone cater to) people like me... So I resolved to create a product that would do just that.
We were founded in South East London by yours truly, Kristina, and we run with the unfaltering excitement of my trusty pooch Tabasco, as well as the support of a wonderful community of family and friends, without whom none of this would be possible.
Living with a chronic illness and/or disability is challenge enough. I wanted to lessen that burden even if by an infinitesimal amount, by making our customers smile, letting them know that they're not alone, and that there's a company out there that cares about and sees them.
If we could send literal energy and healing we would, but until then, we are proud to create and send your Spoonie Boxes all over the world.
