Description

Take This seeks to inform the gaming community about mental health issues, to provide education about mental disorders and mental illness prevention, and to reduce the stigma of mental illness. Together, we’ve created the Box of Hope. Inside is a handcrafted Hope Shield, which functions as a worry stone and a reminder that we are not alone. Made from our beloved Core 16 woods, and with one in fifty featuring a unique inlay, the Hope Shield is a way to show support and let a loved one know it’s OK to ask for help. You can read more about the origins here. If you or someone you know is in crisis and in need of immediate intervention, please visit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or call 1-800-273-8255.

    Recently I ordered one of these, due specifically to the charity partnership and support this item comes with. I think it’s pretty awesome Wyrmwood is doing this to help support a real need in the gaming community. After receiving my Box of Hope, I was pleasantly surprised to see the detailed craftsmanship applied to this item as it would be to anything else they make. I very much recommend getting one of these as they are beautiful, you can display it proudly or give to a loved one and it goes toward a very good cause. Wyrmwood truly creates the best wood based gaming products in the world, fueled by heart and dedication to their trade.

  2. Was recently at PAX East, and fell in love with this whole promotion. From the card inside that explains the whole situation, to the wood shavings used as the filler, to the quality pieces that were received. Got two myself, my Wife got one and all of our friends got one as well – Wife got a legendary made of Ebony with Turquoise inlay! (I got flamebox and peruvian – Awesome!) Absolutely worth it – get conversation pieces, and goes to a worthy cause.

  3. I bought several boxes of the Box of Hope shields at PAX South after reading through the items. I carry one with me daily, and have given several away. I accidently left mine in my pocket and it went through the wash and dryer. It came out a bit rougher, like some of the varnish or polish was removed, and I emailed Wyrmwood asking what I could do. They replied quickly and offered to replace it, or let me know I could try some mineral oil. I want to keep the same one, and thought it was even more appropriate – just like me, it’s been through some unexpected adventures, but came through just fine, if not a little rougher around the edges. I love the fact that they offered to replace it though.

    And like the previous commentor mentioned, the packaging is beautiful. You get a card explaining what the Take This charity is, a card detailing what kind of wood your shield is made from (they are random), and the natural cardboard box is filled with wood shavings and has the Take This logo stamped on top. It doesn’t even need additional wrapping if you’re giving it as a gift. I plan to buy several more for a few other friends.
