About the Book

In August of 2014, five-year-old Mia saw a homeless person on the sidewalk. Her parents explained that the man didn’t have a home and had to live on the streets. This made Mia sad. She got a box and put everything a homeless person would need inside of it. That was the beginning of Mia’s Boxes of Love, a nonprofit. Her boxes have toothbrushes, socks, underwear, a blanket, deodorant, mouthwash, shampoo, and undershirts. She also puts a stuffed animal for little kids.

“I just want other people to feel as happy as I do. There are bad things that happen in the world but I want to be part of the good in the world.”
