Buddy Box Project
This project (also known as #MINDABBP) is a nationwide anonymous self-care box exchange between Buddies
MINDA BuddyBox Project (or known as #MINDABBP) is a yearly exchange gift project where Buddies (participants) will receive an anonymous self-care box. This project aims to amplify the awareness on mental health by having a Buddy receiving and sending a self-care box that contains comforting items such as candles, stockings, mask, books, games, and anything that can help to relieve stress and uplift one’s mental health. A self-care box can be considered as a first-aid kit for mental health – nothing is more comforting than having a self-care box for your bad and gloomy days. Buddies are also encouraged to include a creative and personal letter that highlights the importance of mental health.
In the first #MINDABPP, we opened the registration for anyone who resides in Malaysia, regardless their mental health status. We received tremendous support from the community. There were a total of 200 Buddies who registered for #MINDABBP. The gift-exchange project encouraged participants to spark joy and hope to someone else’s life, while also advocating for better mental health for all.
