BOXES OF HOPE

Red Balloon Foundation are committed to supporting families who cannot, for whatever reason, get involved in groups happening in their local community, are home schoolers or would just like to enjoy a selection of great activities together at home. We are delighted to be working with the Harlow Holiday Lunch Clubs Network to be offering a variety of different 'Boxes of Hope' to be delivered direct to the doors of families in the town during the COVID 19 outbreak.

After delivering nearly 300 boxes to families since April 2020, the Harlow Box of Hope scheme is now closed to new applications. If you are a Box of Hope referral partner and would like to request an urgent box for a family in need, please email bb@rbf.org.uk

If you are interested in RBF working with your church or organisation to develop a BalloonBox selection specific to your geographical area or specific network of supported families, or would like to commission RBF to deliver boxes to families connected to your chuch/organisation please contact bb@rbf.org.uk

HARLOW BOXES OF HOPE IS NOW CLOSED TO NEW REFERRALS

If you would like to purchase a box, you can do so via the main RBF BalloonBox ordering hub here 

If you are a family in urgent need or a Box of Hope referral partner who needs to request assitance please email bb@rbf.org.uk and we will do what we can to either supply you with a box or refer you to another agency for support.

Coming Soon...

 

Box of Hope is becoming "Picnic of Hope" throughout the Summer...

 

Watch this space as locations/dates are released!

Homebox

HomeBox contains all sorts of exciting themed activities for families with children aged 4-10 year old to explore together and for children to be able to enjoy independently. These can form a fun activity day all together, or can be spread throughout a week to provide a daily treat or part of a homeschool curriculum.

Each Box contains a selection of:

  • English/literacy activities differentiated for Early Years, Year 1/2 and Year 3-5 

  • Maths/numeracy activities differentiated for Early Years, Year 1/2 and Year 3-5

  • Fun craft and puzzle activities with required special resources

  • Food based activity with ingredients and recipes

  • STEAM linked activity (science/technology/engineering/art/mathematics)

We are adding more themes all the time linking to a variety of topics from Seasons and Superheroes to special national/international events like the VE Day Celebrations and St. George's Day!

Each box costs £15 (including postage to mainland UK) and you can buy a single box or sign up to receive them weekly either for your own family or as a gift.

Homebox PLUS

Imagine all the fun of a HomeBox... Plus a variety of staple groceries to support family life, including healthy foods, toiletries, sanitary & baby products (where required) as well as cleaning supplies. Everything you need for a happy, safe and well stocked household.

Perfect for families who, for whatever reason, are not so able to get to the shops at the moment or just need to receive a blessing and one less thing to worry about.

Each box costs £30 (including postage to mainland UK) and you can buy a single box, sign up to receive them weekly either for your own family or as a gift.

LUNCHBOX

LunchBox is a great opportunity for families to enjoy learning new skills together as they make simple, easy meals together that they create again time and time again using the enclosed recipe cards.

Each Box contains the key ingredients to create a meal for a family to enjoy together and a recipe card to allow them make the meal again together in the future.

 

LunchBoxes cost £8 (including postage to mainland UK) and you can buy a single box or sign up to receive them weekly either for your own family or as a gift.

FAMILYBOX

As a Christian charity, RBF believes that every child and young person should have the opportunity to encounter God in a fun, creative and age appropriate way throughout the week. For some families for a variety of reasons getting along to a church service on a Sunday morning where that can happen is not possible, or they would like a mid week 'top up' to do at home between Sundays.

 

Whatever the reason you need it for, FamilyBox is a brilliant way for the whole family to explore Biblical teaching together from the comfort of their own home. Each box contains a selection of:

  • Ways to share a Biblical narrative with children and links to online resources

  • A series of 'Wondering Questions' to help explore deeply

  • Two ideas (and the resources) for creative craft/activity responses

  • Response activity using children's toys to help ground the Bible in children's play

  • Suggested prayer activity, puzzle sheets... and more!

Each box costs £5 (including postage to mainland UK) and you can buy a single box, sign up to receive them weekly either for your own family or as a gift.
