Happy Box

Filled with letters for you

What is the Happy Box?


The Happy Box is filled with letters of love, kindness and smiles donated by writers from around the world, all hoping to brighten your day. You can dip in to take a letter whenever you need a boost.

How the Happy Box works

When you are living with cancer we know you can often feel isolated and alone regardless of the support around you. We hope a friendly card or letter, with no reply needed, can brighten your day and help you feel connected to a world beyond your illness.


All you need to do is complete the form below, telling us how often you’d like to receive a letter - perhaps just the once, or every month, or whenever you need a bit of extra support. The letters will cost you nothing.


We will post a letter out to you, no one will have your details apart from us, and no one expects a reply. If you want to write back, we instead ask that you write a letter for Donate A Letter which will be sent on to another cancer patient. Let us know and we’ll send you a letter-writing kit.
