A few words from the young inventor, Hien Ho.

Our Mission Has Evolved:

Experts agree that self-esteem is regarded as vital to children’s social and cognitive development and emotional well-being. Research by Dr. Hei Wan Mak and Dr. Daisy Fancourt of University College London found that children who participated in arts activities most days were significantly more likely to have higher levels of self-esteem than those who participated less often. Ability to draw is not important. Engagement is key. They also found that parents’ engagement along with the children contributes to significant positive enhancement in self-esteem. Dr. Mak and Dr. Fancourt explained that creating art can validate the uniqueness of an individual, which gives rise to a sense of accomplishment and to feelings of self-worth. Also, The arts have been shown to support a sense of social identity and can encourage goal-directed behavior, and enhance social resilience.

Our New Mission: To help children enhance their self-esteem and relieve anxiety through artistic expression so that they will achieve academic success.

For kids living in low income families, this program will help them. A study by the Federal Reserve Bank concluded that education is key to escape the generational cycle of poverty. Absenteeism has been a big problem for many schools. There are many causes that need fixed. Incorporating this program that is fun for the kids to create art with friends and is helpful for their mental health will entice them to attend school more often. If our society is to have lower crime and homelessness and more loving, caring, understanding citizens, we should consider investing in tools and programs like ours to help children overcome trauma and boost self-esteem now. Prevention is much cheaper and more effective.

The amazing positive comments from mental health experts, educators, students, after school staff

Executive Director of Unbound Stockton

The backpacks were a great way to get to know the kids. It gave them the freedom to use drawings, symbols, and words to express themselves. These are great tools for getting to know one another.

Mr. Rodrigo, Site Coordinator of Boys & Girls Club at Aspire Charter School sites in Stanislaus county

It keeps our youth concentrated, focused, and just engaged in the activities they are doing.  My staff also finds it a cool and awesome concept and they also enjoy working on the backpacks themselves!

Mr. Moises Coria Branch Manager of Sierra Vista – Stockton Boys & Girls Clubs

The kids really enjoyed the curriculum. We did notice they were able to open up and discuss more about themselves through drawing and talking.

Mrs. KimAnh Truong-Munoz, Principal of KIPP School Stockton

I am glad to be able to have a powerful tool for art and reflection in a backpack– something that every kid should have and now is an opportunity to reflect on their best selves as well.

“I loved the creative educational curriculum and the multiple uses of the magic backpack that can suit both non-clinical and clinical support for children. I highly recommend this wonderful tool that can strengthen children’s brain architecture by promoting their social-emotional development. It is essential to all future learning, behavior, and health. ” 

Aideen Cooney, Senior Art Therapist Cork, Ireland

My 4 year old son had a very specific idea that he wanted a backpack he could draw on every day. We were absolutely delighted when we found a like minded vision in ChalkWild. This unique and functional canvas is the perfect transitional object. Most importantly it’s an outlet for expression that can give voice to the inner world of emotions and help nurture and develop the creative problem solvers of the future.”

Christie Hendricks, Assistant Superintendent Early Education Department Merced County Office of Education

The Early Education Department is extremely impressed with the quality of the backpacks we purchased. The children enjoyed the write on/wipe off surface and having their own personal backpack to showcase their creativity builds their self-confidence!

We are excited about the backpacks. The backpacks are such innovative use of an everyday product.

Dave Lockridge, Executive Director of ACE Overcomer Center For Resilience

Hien has a brilliant product in the ChalkWild Erasable Backpack. The benefits of art therapy for traumatized or stressed children are proven. Additionally, it gives adults a window into the thoughts and emotions of the child. I highly recommend the ChalkWild Erasable Backpack to programs and parents working with sensitized children.

Dr. Ganielle Hooper, Ph.D, Certified Pediatric Mental Health Specialist & Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, a graduate of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, and a Founder & CEO of Axis Hope, LLC based in Marietta, Georgia

The Chalk Wild erasable backpack is a great on-the-go resource for children who love to draw. Drawing can be very soothing and may help to ease feelings of anxiety or stress and help to regulate emotions. The backpack can be used as a canvas at any time, such as whilst waiting or on the train. This is very helpful for children who are always moving or have attention difficulties. I would recommend the Chalk Wild erasable backpack to parents and teachers.

Yoland Ruiz, Pathways to HOPE Program Manager, Camp HOPE America – San Diego Alliance for HOPE International

As for the kid that has had his backpack for a month, mom says he loves it! He is 7 years old and is in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) at school. The teachers have found it challenging to accommodate a rocking chair to help with the child’s concentration, but mom said that the backpack has helped. She stated that he used to hide under his desk constantly, but now uses the backpack on his desk or the floor instead. Mom said the teachers find it very helpful. Although the boy doesn’t use it at home, he takes the backpack to school every day as well as on any car ride. Mom is very grateful!
