MORE THAN PEACH™Crayons: The Multicultural ones? ’They’re all named ‘skin color!'
Bellen’s brand is no other than More Than Peach™, the product inclusive line of multicultural crayons, colored pencils and more! More Than Peach was created in Spring 2019 by then 8-year-old Bellen because of what wasn't AND to ‘get multicultural crayons in the hands of every student and every classroom.’ She began by donating a variety of products using money she's saved and went on to create the acclaimed More Than Peach brand to achieve a much bigger mission: increase access & advance the empathy, leadership, and creativity for all students — excluding no one.
Bellen single-handedly pioneered this mission and values most that kids hold a More than Peach product and instantly know the power of "KIDHOOD!" Created for all kids...by a kid.
Though More Than Peach has now influenced even the “big brand” to reconsider access, she's delighted to have created a brand that started that way!
Browse the site to learn more about the More Than Peach movement and how to be involved! More than Peach: Made with everyone in mind — to recognize and dignify the voices, contributions, and talent of all.

Meet the now 10-year-old girl who has gotten people to finally stop thinking of the peach-colored crayon as the ‘skin-color’ crayon.
