    The Soul Box Project collects and exhibits thousands of hand-folded origami boxes to raise awareness of the U.S. gunfire epidemic. Each Soul Box holds space for one life lost or injured by gun violence, defense, accident or suicide. Participants MAKE A BOX  to hold space for a life lost or torn apart by gun violence and SEND IT IN to join thousands of Soul Boxes in public exhibits where the number of victims is seen and felt.
