On this week's episode Jamie and Guy welcome Jason Clawson, therapist, widower, father and founder of Sunshine Boxes. During this episode, Jason shares the devastating story of losing his wife to colon cancer and how he tackled what felt like an impossible journey to find joy again. He explains that nine months after her passing, he staged his own "intervention" and created a "healing team" that he could turn to when things felt too heavy. By being vulnerable and connecting with others, he begin to heal and find happiness again. Looking back, one moment that stood out to him during this difficult time was receiving a "Sunshine Bucket" full of happy yellow items. He recalls how much joy and momentary happiness that brought to his family. After his wife passed, he and his sons decided to create Sunshine Buckets for others who might be struggling. As word spread, Jason received more and more interest in his boxes and what began as a few buckets has grown into "a Sunshine Movement". To meet that need, he has created a a kickstarter campaign to be able to provide a little bit of sunshine to anyone in need. He explains that these boxes are more than fun yellow items, "they are a customized box of sunshine to comfort your loved ones with their specific struggles and are designed to help the person going through grief branch out and build support around them with minimal effort".
