The name of my business is Multi Culti Kids Co. My tagline is Celebrate. Conversate. Cultivate. Collaborate. It's a monthly book box and craft subscription service for families, focused on diversifying a child’s library, and supporting caregivers in engaging in conversation around cultural (race, gender, sexuality, disability, religion, class, etc) issues with their children in an age appropriate way. There will be two boxes offered – 0-3 yr olds and 4-7 yr olds. Subscribers will also gain access to a private Facebook group, which will regularly be updated with resources, articles, and videos, focused on multiculturalism. The idea is that this Facebook group will serve as a support group for families trying to engage in dialogue with their children around cultural issues, as well as a place to find resources. These resources are aimed at supporting caregivers in their own education and self-exploration around these topics, which will hopefully lead to increased awareness, compassion, and tolerance. Also, a portion of the proceeds from each box will be donated to an organization focused on promoting literacy and education (organization has not been chosen yet).
In time, I would like my business to also offer a line of apparel for infants, children, and adults. Apparel will contain inspirational and trendy slogans, such as F is for Feminist, Be Brave Love Hard, Multi Culti, and Make a Difference.
Lastly, I would also like to create a monthly podcast under my brand name. The podcast would be hosted by me and be no more than 15-20 min. Topics would include interviews with child development experts around facilitating conversations with little ones, interviews with authors of diverse children’s books, interviews with families focused on a specific cultural aspect – class, blended families, race, etc.
