KIDBOX launched with a clear mission in mind: selling boxes of children’s clothing and helping kids in need. To achieve these goals, KIDBOX has supported Delivering Good since the company’s inception. KIDBOX curates boxes of clothing for kids of various sizes, and for every box sold, one item is donated to Delivering Good. The clothing includes brand-name, on-trend, high-quality product —which are donated to thousands of kids every year.
Delivering Good and KIDBOX know the power of new products. New clothing can increase self-esteem, give individuals a sense of dignity and provide a fresh start. KIDBOX’s donations help children grow and thrive in their local communities. One KIDBOX clothing recipient at Solid As A Rock in Oregon beamed, “When I usually get clothing donations they are mostly someone’s hand me down clothes that have a weird odor to them like they were sitting in someone’s basement, but these clothes were brand new and the latest name brand fashion. I couldn’t believe it!”
In 2018, Delivering Good attended the annual KIDBOX Kids Board Day, to celebrate the next generation of leaders. Each year, KIDBOX selects 12 young people who are making great impact in their communities. Some of the Kids Board causes included: disaster recovery in Puerto Rico, melanoma prevention, building homes in Mexico, gun violence prevention, delivering crayons to hospitals, creating kits for the homeless, collecting and donating back to school supplies, addressing climate change, encouraging literacy while bringing awareness to African American literature and raising awareness for pediatric cancer research. Delivering Good is proud to be associated with such an incredibly inspiring group of bright young leaders through mentorship and participation in the Kids Board Day, which included a site visit and distribution of brand new backpacks to the children of one of our long-standing NYC-based community partners, Cherry Kids.
