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.
