Kidbox Helps Children Make Change
Find out the twelve children who have been elected to the company’s Kids Board of Directors.
Mission-based style box company Kidbox has elected 12 kids to its second Kids Board of Directors. Each small-but-mighty child will advise the company on kids’ fashion while learning from a top executive in the industry. Each elected child has demonstrated strong leadership skills and a passion for activism, which Kidbox has chosen to work directly with on projects in their communities and expand the company’s mission of clothing one million children in need.
Each board member is between 8 and 14 years old, including:
- Jayden Perez: 9-year-old Woodland Park, NJ resident who organized a drive in his hometown and hand delivered 1,100 toys to child hurricane victims in Puerto Rico
- Sylvie Reimer Sherman: 12-year-old New York philanthropic fashion designer

- Ella R. Tryon: 8-year-old from Cleveland, OH who has donated over 29 thousand boxes of crayons to young patients at children’s hospitals around the country with the Help Me Color A Rainbow Foundation
- Carter Buchholz: 10-year-old Wooster, OH resident who is helping to stop global warming by raising hundreds of dollars for non-profit organization Greenpeace
