Clothing Box Teaches Kids Socially Responsible Shopping
Clothing service gives children the power to help other kids in need
Shopping doesn’t have to be just plain fun; shopping can also be done with a valuable purpose in mind. Kidbox is the first clothing style box solely focused on kids’ clothing. Beyond the fun and excitement in buying new clothes, the company aims to teach kids an important lesson.
Haim Dabah, founder of Kidbox, has a unique proposition in mind—one that parents and kids can mutually benefit from. The company’s mission states:
Kidbox is committed to providing parents and kids with effortless shopping experiences, while empowering families to be socially responsible. Through Kidbox Cares, parents share with their kids the impactful experience of getting and giving new clothes to other children.
When a parent and child purchases a box of clothes from Kidbox, the company donates clothes to a kid in need. The child is who will actually choose which specific cause he or she wants to donate to. Some of the choices include donating to homeless children, military families, single parent households, disaster relief and many more.
The child answers a short questionnaire so that Kidbox can learn about the child’s clothing preferences and styles. After that, the parents will complete the questionnaire. Kidbox will then use the information to fill up the box with custom style collections.
Each box contains six to seven high quality branded pieces handpicked for the child. The pieces can be ensembles or separates. Some of the boxes may have a fun and educational surprise for the little customers, too.
The fun begins once the box is delivered. The parent and child can enjoy unpacking the box together. Parents and children have seven days to decide whether they want to keep the clothes, exchange for sizes or return some/all items. On the seventh day, parents will have to pay for what they want to keep. If the parent and child want to keep everything, then they are given the opportunity to give back, which means choosing a cause to donate to.
