Have a question?
Man, why didn't I think of that! Best of luck :)
Really practical and fun idea. Best of luck!
I can't wait to get my crayon boxes! Also, I love the charity partnership that you've made - nice work!
I have ordered for my kids, Christmas presents, and friends! I am ecstatic!
Great idea - my niece will love this!
Good luck, you two!!
Best of luck! Can't wait to get one of these for my nephews! If they don't destroy it, you know it's indestructible!
My 4 year old tried the prototype of this crayon box and loved it! Can't wait to get our own box! (Now if only you have an invention to prevent 1 year olds from coloring on walls...)
Wish I had this crayon box when I was growing up! Won't topple over and spill-proof. Look out Crayola, you've got some serious competition!
This is a great idea!!
Worthwhile venture! All the best luck with this!

The future has not been written yet. Go to it! ELB
All the best wishes for this inspiring project!!
This is a game-changer! As a parent of a 2 1/2 year old (and a 7 month old), crayons are EVERYWHERE at all times. To have a crayon box like the Ready XO Crayon Box would be a huge help in my life! (And a huge help to all parents, caregivers, teachers, etc.!) Also, I really love that pledges for this project will result in donations of the Ready XO Crayon Boxes to "No Crayon Left Behind." Awesome!!!!
Looking forward to sharing these crayons boxes with my grandchildren
Love this idea! Good luck!!!
I'm so excited to donate these fun and sturdy crayon boxes to No Crayon Left Behind!
Great project! Can't wait to receive mine!
Hi Shannon, and Welcome Back for Round Two!
I appreciate your campaign and think you have a really good idea here, as the world needs a sturdy and stable reusable container to store crayons, over the cardboard box that inevitably falls apart dropping and breaking crayons all over. I also appreciate that you have dropped your funding goal from $50k to $18k in an attempt to bring your campaign to frutation. Unfortunately, I cannot any longer pledge for the two boxes as I did in your previous campaign partly because the pledge level for the equivalent reward has increased double from 2@ $15 to 2@ $30. Even though this pledge level in your new campaign also includes the donation of your product to a very good cause.
My choice not to back at the same level is not only due to the reward level doubling in cost, but since your last campaign, any increased funding of your campaign will not be possible for me at this time as my ex has violated a court order and has moved out of state and 1400 miles away, and at this point I am unsure if I will even ever see or have contact with my daughter again for her to benefit from any reward Crayon Boxes. And I may be forced to liquidate alot of my possessions and move somewhere nearby my daughter(after locating them) for the sake of her having a father in her pre-teen life. Not an easy task when I am also fighting a mobility and chronic pain disability.
It is also unfortunate that you have also chosen a shorter campaign length this time around, as I believe this shorter campaign time, in addition to the doubling of the pledge amount needed for rewards will make it difficult for success, and personally may have given me additional time to pledge at a higher reward level which would have helped reach your goal. What I feel that I can comfortably do is that I halved my previous pledge and will not take a reward in this campaign and will just wish you good luck and I hope you have success this time around!
