and mother of two teaching kids about diversity and culture in a unique way and teaming up with another mom to highlight black history month. Take a look. Wow. Look what I got. Wow. It is dedicated to creating connections, and bringing awareness about culture, and diversity, and inclusion, and belonging, to children all over the world. During this pandemic, we realized, we wanted to do things with our children and then give them independent time because we have to work. And that's what these boxes bring. In our culture boxes, we have sensory toys, we have crafts, we have books, we have coloring books, we have -- we have coloring books, we have crayons, flash cards, language cards, the child's brain between the ages of 2 to 9 years old is the best time for us to educate them so they can grow up to understand different people and different cultures. The company inspiration came from growing up here in southern California. A lot of us who came from immigrant parents suffered some sort of racism or bullying or being made fun of. My mom went into my school, I was in first grade, and she took all of these children who were in the classroom and compared my culture and my religion and my upbringing to them. So she showed us that we are actually more similar than we are different. During my research with kids, I learned that there are 50,000 plus cultures in the united States, and that have actually built America to who and what we are today. I contacted Mikita, she and I went together, and we created this America box on black history between what they learn in school. And with the black lives matter movement, she wanted to do more, and I told her, let's create this box, let's give people the resources, and this box isn't just for African-American people, this box is for all cultures, all people. There's a plethora of African-American trailblazers, inventors, doctors, architects, you name it, that are not talked about and discussed in the American classroom, but they should be. Black history should be celebrated each and every day. It should be celebrated each and every month. We're a small business. We're a woman-owned, you know, south Asian small business that is trying to make its mark in the world. We want to make sure that we teach children how inclusive the world is, how much belonging is in the world, and how much we need to be empathetic towards every single person. Very cool. We've got an American with the black history month theme and an Australian box here for kids, pretty cool. And yours are a little maybe old for this stage? Well, I have an 8-year-old at the house. She'll love it. Thank you all for these very much.
