Please join us in supporting the launch of Coco’s Adventure Box — a resilience-building activity box for kids facing serious health challenges. Charleston Library Society member, Casey Tulloch created the original box for a friend’s 7-year-old daughter, nicknamed Coco, after she was diagnosed with leukemia. After success with Coco, followed by a local pilot at MUSC, she’s now bringing Coco’s Box to more kids being treated at hospitals nationwide, with e-commerce to follow.

At this event, Casey will share a preview of the box and the story inside and creative techniques used to build-resilience. Participants will have an opportunity to sponsor a box for a child in need and find more ways to support this cause.
This event is in-person, free, and open to the public. To RSVP, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
About Coco’s Adventure Box:
Each box contains an activity book written as a story to help kids process the emotional challenges of their journey. Many of these kids experience isolation, boredom, and stress from changes to their body, routine, and environment. And a deep sense of powerlessness, which they often have trouble expressing.The book touches upon each of these themes in the storyline of a child on a sea adventure. It comes with costumes, props, and gifts like a captain’s hat, a treasure map, and a message in a bottle. It takes place on a ship, because a ship, like a hospital room, can feel confining, but your imagination can take you on a vast sea of adventures.
About Casey Tulloch:
At Dartmouth College, Casey studied product and human-centered design within the engineering major. She applied these skills to prototype, collect user feedback, and iterate upon the design of Coco’s Adventure Boxes. Over her junior summer in college and after graduating, she worked at Apple as an Engineering Project Manager on developing new software features for the Maps app.
She left Apple when she realized she wanted to work on products that centered around personal fulfillment. She got certified as a Professional Executive/Life Coach (CPC), specializing in creativity, and designed workshops that helped 200+ attendees learn how to choose their best ideas based on personal fit. The material she developed for those workshops ended up leading her to choose to work on Coco’s Adventure Box. Hear more about that process in her TEDx talk, “Choose ideas that fit you.” Casey drew on techniques she learned from coaching to design each resilience building activity in Coco’s story.
