KIDBOX, a socially-minded kids style service, chose an elite force of entrepreneurial kids between the ages of 6-15 who have demonstrated leadership and passion for social good for their Kids Board of Directors. The company has provided each member with $10,000 worth of KIDBOX clothing to donate to kids in need as well as extra funding to execute their meaningful community projects.
These young people are just a few of the African-American leaders who are members of are KIDBOX’s Kids Board of Directors and are demonstrating that they are a force to be reckoned with as they execute meaningful and charitable projects in their local communities. These young people have an incredible and sincere goal of making the world a better place. For more information on how to get your kid involved with KIDBOX, visit www.lookgooddogood.kidbox.com/
