Why Botwc Box?
Beyond the Classroom and Black History Month!
For the last five years we’ve traveled the country, engaging thousands of children, visiting elementary schools and educating kids on trailblazers known and unknown. We realized that Black history was only being taught in February, if at all, and when it was, the subjects were the same cast of historical figures. After receiving requests from educators and parents for innovative tools and seeing young people expand their aspirations after exposing them to a broader range of history makers, it was clear that we needed to create something that would engage children on a larger scale with consistent content curated just for them. Enter the BOTWC Box.

Five stars for black excellence!
We really appreciate you and our BOTWC boxes. As a 4th grade teacher and mother, I would like to say that you're doing an amazing job educating our children about our history! Thank you!
You've helped my daughter walk proudly in her school reppin BOTWC items at different times (stickers, notebook, the scarf, bag, cup, and more). It helps her self-esteem while in a school where there are few (more than last year) minorities.
I am a better mother to my son because of your service. Thank you.
My daughter + I are so happy with your products! Thanks so much. The Stevie Wonder box was especially amazing. Been putting her onto him since birth.
My family has learned so much! So happy this exists! - @amorkamism
Amen! Our mini loves his subscription and the ability to learn about all things black month after month! Keep up the great work!
We received our box today! We absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our boxes!!!! Thank you so much for creating these boxes for our future leaders! I’m so thankful!
This is the BEST investment for son!!!!
He loves opening his box each month!!!!
Thank you so much! I love, love, love my kid’s boxes!!! Keep up the amazing work! The quality of the items in the box is so worth the subscription!
My daughter’s #botwcbox was the biggest surprise and most appreciated of all her #Christmas presents this year! The letter from Dr. Bernice King was especially poignant and has already become one of her most treasured keepsakes. #ChristmasWin 🙌🏻 Note: She’s keeping the planner for herself. 😉
I want to thank @euniquejg and @becauseofthem for creating this awesome subscription box @botwcbox for kids. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach the #twoomans about great African American figures in history and alive today!
One of my favorite Christmases. We gave no electronics this year, but the kids were *thrilled* with their gifts. Felix loved his #botwcbox and told Mimi, "I got a letter from Martin Luther King Jr's daughter!" and wore his medal all day. Fletcher is decked out in #denverbroncos gear and Macy is ready to bake up a storm.
This just got dropped off at my doorstep and I got a sneak peak before the kids got up! 🌟 I am so impressed with how the #botwcbox is put together, and the quality and amount of products included. What a great way to empower our youth! I can’t wait to give it to my girls on Christmas. ❤️
A MUST HAVE FOR 2019 AND BEYOND !!! #Botwcbox @becauseofthem ❤️💯🙏🏾💪🏾 * #becauseofthemwecan
