The reason we were in NYC was for a board meeting with Kidbox. But not just any board meeting. Their board is made up of a panel of bright, young kids full of ideas. The kids ran the entire thing. Us parents were sent off to the Empire State Building while the kids had their meeting. They really encouraged them to be independent and run the show. It was really neat. Kidbox is a company that has donated a large amount of clothing to Delivering Good. They are a seasonal subscription box of name brand clothing that you keep what you want and send back the rest. We always keep everything! In Liv's last box she received the cutest pair of 7 jeans. She loved it all and so did I.

Kidbox works closely with an organization called Children Of Promise. Their goal is to embrace children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system. This is a safe haven for children. As one of their programs they provide a wellness center to help these children cope with their situations and how they can better deal with them. They offer tutoring to keep kids focused and in school, mentoring and even transportation. How incredible is that? They are changing so many lives and we are so excited and humbled to be a part of something such as this.

After their meeting and jam sesh with a music instructor, we loaded a bus and headed to Brooklyn. Where Children of Promise is located. The kids broke off into groups with children currently in the program and had a blast.

We packed pencil pouches full of supplies so all of the kids were prepared for the first day of school.

This day was such an experience for us and we never stopped smiling once! Here are some pix from the day.

 How cute are these kiddos? They are all so amazing and inspirational.

 Here are some shots I took while on top of the Empire State Building. You can literally see every square inch of Manhattan.

Now we are on our way to Brooklyn. I fell in love with it. There was so much art and culture. The city was very clean and nothing what I expected. I wish I had an entire day to spend there taking pix of my girls. If you are visiting NYC, I highly recommend planning a day in Brooklyn. You will have so much fun there. 

 Here is where we arrive at Children Of Promise.

What an amazing day we had.
