Kidbox has announced the launch of their Kids Board of Directors. The company is the first online shopping style box that deliver cool brands to kids, and is also on a mission to clothe children in need. They want to empower children to give back and start the conversation between parents and kids about social good.
Kidbox launched in spring 2016 with a social mission at its core. Through a partnership with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Kidbox outfits a child in need for every Kidbox purchased. The partnership supports their mission to donate clothing to one million children and enables parents and kids to start a conversation about giving back. They are enlisting young leaders across the country to further realize their goal.
Once selected, the Kids Board members will attend an annual all expense paid 2-day conference and workshop with the Kidbox team in New York City. They will have the opportunity to meet and work alongside various members of the team including Buyers, Marketers, Designers and Web Engineers and will be given the opportunity to collaborate on business projects such as designing an original item of clothing, developing a new social media activation campaign and supporting programming at a major charitable event. The Kids Board will take part in video conferences, while continuing to represent Kidbox as local ambassadors for social good in their respective regions of the United States.
“By involving talented kids in the KIDBOX mission, the team is gaining invaluable insights into the meaningful causes that matter to the youth of today,” said Kidbox CEO Miki Racine Berardelli. “We hope that these young leaders will aid in fostering an even greater spirit of generosity worldwide.”
Kidbox is committed to outfitting more than 1 million children in need, and will be inviting the board to support the brand in achieving this goal. They will work hand-and-hand with the Kids Board Members to figure out the right way to make a meaningful impact—from scholarships to social engagement campaigns, video series to bus tours. The company also expects to learn a great deal from the kids on the board, inviting them to help develop ideas that will improve the business.
To apply to join the board, prospective candidates are encouraged to fill out a questionnaire online and submit a 30 sec – 2 minute video by December 15, 2016 answering the question “How can young people change the world and what am I doing to help?”. Videos must be uploaded to YouTube and a link to the video along with application materials can be emailed to Kidbox at firstname.lastname@example.org. Children must be between the ages of 6 and 15 on January 1, 2017.
