The Giggle Box Project is a non-profit organization joyfully dedicated to promoting physical healing and the emotional well-being of patients in hospitals.
We are at the forefront of the movement in our society addressing emotional stress and its affect on our physical bodies. The GiggleboxTM is a tool that empowers the patient to deliberately choose a more positive perspective, thereby reducing the current stress and promoting a lifestyle change toward a continued positive outlook that will have a necessary and beneficial ripple affect into our entire society's well-being.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention has released a study that clearly demonstrates what many of us have discovered through life experience. We at Giggleboxes believe that it is time to begin implementing changes that address the healing process of disease by including the emotional well-being of the patient. The time has come to address the entire human experience.
We are looking to connect with like minded individuals and organizations interested in moving forward in this regard without delay. Please email Susan at The Giggle Box Project or make a donation to move this necessary change forward.

A Simple Change in Perspective Can Heal the World
We are thrilled to annouce Owen was the FIRST receipent of a GIGGLEBOX. It was delivered to him on Saturday, September 7, 2013 at 5:30 PM by the Susan Dempsey, founder of the GIGGLE BOX PROJECT.
In the following photo, Owen took the microphone from his Mom and said, 'My Mom told me that if we keep putting our attention on the scary stuff, it gets bigger, so we are better off having fun instead!'.
We couldn't have put it better! Thank you Owen!
An instant pick me up for whenever you need a boost!
