Our Story..

Butterfly Box care packages are created especially for ladies living with an autoimmune like lupus. However this box is also great for any woman. In every box, you will find carefully chosen, feel-good products. Some of which will help with symptoms or side effects experienced by lupus warriors. All of our beautiful butterfly boxes, ship straight to the recipient’s doorstep.

Gillian Ravn, owner and founder of Butterfly Box, has been living with lupus for over 13 years and during her journey, Gillian has had first-hand experience of the unpredictability of this disease. Throughout her journey, she has had the opportunity to meet other warriors like herself who acknowledges how  wonderful it would be to buy or receive a care package and to be reminded that they are not going through this alone and that someone cares.

Gillian’s dream of a Butterfly Box was started  because she wanted to bring some joy to you living with lupus. 

 Our goal is to continue supporting women living with lupus – by making this Butterfly Box available; it is just one of the  many ways we are giving our support

Gillian Ravn is a loving mom and wife.  She was diagnosed with Lupus over 13 years ago and since then has been trying to live well and give back despite Lupus.

After her diagnosis with Lupus she became very passionate about helping to find a cure for this horrible disease. Over the years she has been to the Georgia state capital to advocate for more funding and better laws supporting Lupus patients. She has also been an enthusiastic fundraiser for the lupus foundation of America (Georgia Chapter) in particular as part of the yearly Lupus Walk since 2011. 

She has however always wanted to do more to uplift, support and empower women living with Lupus. This is where her dream of Butterfly Box came about. She wanted to bring a little bit of joy to Lupus warriors while they are going through their journey. She believed that the truest form of success is giving back in a meaningful way.
