The Hanson Box Project

We believe that there is nothing more important than educating and inspiring the next generation.

To this end, the Don Hanson Charitable Foundation creates a new “Hanson Box” each year.

Named in memory of the British philanthropist Don Hanson, each box is full of specially designed educational books, DVDs, activity kits and lesson plans to help educators empower children.

We send and donate thousands of Hanson Boxes to schools every year. Hanson Boxes (and all of the resources that they contain) are completely free for schools (including shipping).

We create fresh new resources for each year.

To date, more than 30,000 Hanson Boxes have been shipped, representing over 270 tonnes of resources!

We hope that these resources have enhanced learning and inspired students.
