Our Story

Kim Angeli created the first version of The Grateful Box® in 2010, when she was searching for something that she could do to help her cope with a series of changes and challenges in her life both personally and professionally.

As Kim started to see the results that she had from writing one note of hope a day she made a commitment to share this with the world.

While on vacation in 2010 at Bald Head Island she was prompted to buy the domain name Grateful Box.

During this journey, she shared her new habit and the positive impact it was having on her perspective with client and friend Joy Harris.

When Joy sold her HOA management company in 2014, she reached out to Kim to see how she could help her get the Grateful Box created and share her perspective and journey with others, to inspire them to start their own journey to Grateful Living.

Now Kim and Joy are on a mission together to help others develop an attitude of gratitude!
