In the era of preppers building bunkers and storing endless amounts of dried food and Heinz soup cans, Spoonie Survival Kits may sound like something out of a prepper catalogue. But not so!
Spoonie refers to a person who suffers from chronic illness, based on the Spoon Theory by Christine Miserandino. The lovely girls at Spoonie Survival Kits (SSK) led by Pippa put together kits for spoonies to be sold online to raise funds for chronic illness charities, current one being Action for M.E.. M.E. stands for myalgic encephalomyelitis and is more commonly referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome.
The benefits are two fold; chronic illness warriors are able to purchase something tailored for them to brighten their day, and SSK can raise funds for chronic illness charities. What more can you ask for?!
The display plush I made is shown below, along with the SSK logo.
On the back, I put a pocket for little spoons.
