The JimBro Box

A Gift of Hope, Love & a Few Essentials

ORIGIN STORY = “Jimbro Box”

The “Jimbro Box” is a simple yet powerful concept of gathering essentials and distributing them to fellow humans in need. This was a practice we observed James Bear exercise most of his adult life. Since there is one less angel in this physical realm doing this kind service, we thought we would carry the ball on from here for Jim. We are a volunteer group of family and friends that are attempting to continue this legacy of love and kindness while also coping with our crippling grief to be quite honest.

If you are so inclined to participate we welcome any and all help. From getting labels and making your own boxes, to purchasing boxes or just sponsoring boxes so we can get them in the hands of people in need.

Here’s the handout we insert in each box to share Jim’s message and inspirational messages from theologians, philosophers and spiritual writings.
