This Memory Box project tutorial includes all of the steps and information needed to make a memory box to help families and individuals that are battling against addiction. Every Aina Project Tutorial includes a hands-on, DIY project so you can actually do something to help the world.
This project helps people working with The Herren Project, an amazing, Aina-approved nonprofit organization that is helping to educate, intervene, and lend support to people before and during a battle with substance abuse. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 1 in every 12 adolescents (ages 12-17), 1 in every 6 young adults (ages 18-25), and 14.5 million adults over the age of 25 battled a substance use disorder in 2014. Often community is the line that stands between these people succeeding or failing in their battle. Make a Memory Box - and send hope, faith, and encouragement - for a person going through rehab, a family with a loved one in rehab, or a family that has lost a loved to substance abuse. Memory Boxes are particularly helpful to all of these groups to remember what is loved and hoped for, and to hold on to those dreams for tomorrow.
This project is perfect for getting the conversation started on substance abuse and why community is important, and is easy enough for children as small as 5 to tackle. It's the perfect craft for any parent, civic group, or church leader.
