"My big goal is to get multicultural crayons and the More than Peach message, not just around the country but maybe even around the world because no one should feel disincluded."
I'm currently donating the More than Peach Sketchbooks and multicultural crayons to elementary students. Beginning in the fall, I will resume donating More than Peach sketchbooks and the new More than Peach multicultural colored pencils to middle school students and senior citizens! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or if you know a business that can help or if you require a donation for your students! Stay tuned for the summer release of More than Peach multicultural and rainbow crayons!

The Peer Palette group is now active! Our last project as a group (Pre-Covid) was baking 8 dozen cookies for the Loudoun Literacy Headstart Program Book Party! We had an AWESOME time!

4th Grader Bellen--and now "Crayon Activist"-- launched The More than Peach Project when in third grade. Bellen has since been recognized by both local and national officials and networks for her stellar academic achievements, creativity, and advocacy. Bellen began the project in her community using her own money to locate and purchase multicultural crayons to highlight an important diversity issue. Her philanthropy quickly grew--and is now a national movement. Bellen has donated over 3000 items to students and senior citizens! The More than Peach Project is now nationally recognized and we applaud 9 year old Bellen for her service, exceptional academic achievement, and for being a youth leader! Way to go!
Bellen's story and exclusive More than Peach Palette Packet, received by the Virginia Museum of History and Culture (VMHC), will be added in posterity to its museum collection! "Thank to VMHC and the wonderful staff for recognizing my work and inspiring me to continue to do my part to move the conversations forward so everyone knows they're important. Because that's important." ❤-Bellen
