January 2018 marks the one year anniversary of the idea for Kid Kits being born. The idea stemmed from my passion for nature and wanting to help kids connect with and learn about nature. There is nothing that brings more joy to the soul than the beaming smile on a child's face. Children are our future and we borrow this Earth from them. I wanted to find some way to bridge the gap. I firmly believe if we help enough kids develop a love of nature, we will raise a generation that wants to give back, preserve, and protect the Earth, our only home.
Those who know me personally know that when I have an idea fueled by passion, I'm going to run with it. After countless hours of hammering out all the details, building a website, sacrificing sleep, wondering if parents will even like the idea...Kid Kits was ready to launch.
Since the beginning, I knew this was more than a nature based activity box for families. Our value goes beyond activities and connecting children with nature. I strive for Kid Kits to be a positive force promoting kindness and showing kids how their small acts of kindness can make a big impact on this world. I hope you'll join our weekly random acts of kindness to brighten other's days. We've also recently launched our Heroes of Hope program to shine a spotlight on incredible kids who are doing amazing things to make the world a better place.
I'm so grateful and blown away by the outpour of support from our followers, our fans, and especially our subscribers. Some of you have been with us since day 1. We wouldn't still be here today without you all. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for turning this idea into a company that brings a smile to children's faces all over the US and now internationally.
Month after month you inspire us with your photos and your stories of your children who are so thrilled to open their kits. Keep them coming! They are our best source of fuel. We have some exciting things planned for you for 2018 to continue to make an impact in children's lives.
Through this journey, I've personally gained some great new friendships and have connected with truly amazing and inspiring people.
We leave 2017 with grateful hearts and know that 2018 will bring more joy as we grow and help more families unplug and connect with each other.
Wishing you the best for 2018!
LeAnn, Kid Kits Founder
