Welcoming Thomas for a guest post today:
My brother and I are starting a business called Nachmu Crayons. Nachmu Crayons will be part of the KidBiz program. KidBiz is a program where kids can sell things such as artwork, crafts, old toys, and stuff like that. It is sponsored by Buffalo State College. KidBiz will be on Saturday, June 15, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the corner of Elmwood and Bidwell by the farmers’ market in Buffalo, New York. Other kids will be selling things there too.
We will be selling recycled crayons shaped to be butterflies, ladybugs, frogs, hearts, and stars. The prices are 3 for $2 or 75¢ each. We will not only be selling crayons of different shapes, but we will also bring our musical instruments. My brother, Jack, will play the cello, and I will play the violin.
We call the business Nachmu Crayons because my dad uses Nachmu (Nock-Moo) as a family nickname. Nachmu means comfort in Hebrew. You can read more about that here.
We would like to recycle more crayons! If you have unwanted crayons, please think of recycling them with us. Any crayons are fine even if they are broken. We will melt the crayons and pour them into candy molds to give them their new shape. We will give you a Nachmu Crayons coupon for your donation. Future dates for Kidbiz are July 6 and August 3. We hope to be selling crayons on those dates too!
Please send our mom an email if you would like to recycle crayons with us. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Write “recycled crayons” in the subject header, and we will get back to you. Thank you!
