This past Saturday Guided was lucky enough to support Seattle Cardboard Challenge which took place at the North Seattle Boys and Girls Club. Erika Wagner, one of the events coordinators said the event was a huge success with over 80 kids and parents participating. Inventing time machines, mobiles, castles, boats, suits of armor and small woodland creatures - all out of recycled cardboard and the kids imaginations (some of it from Guided's post industrial waste and spoiled inventory).
In the coming years we hope to play an even greater role in the event. Who knows, we may even find our next great recycled and Made in USA product idea!!!!
Background on the Imagination Foundation and the Global Cardboard Challenge
The mission of the Imagination Foundation is to find, foster and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in children around the world to raise a new generation of innovators and problem solvers who have the tools they need to build the world they imagine.
We were born out of the overwhelming global success of the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade’. The film launched a movement to celebrate the natural creative talents of every child, and the Imagination Foundation was created to grow and sustain this movement.
