Exclusive MORE THAN PEACH™ Multicultural & Rainbow Crayons
Bellen's brand is only More than Peach™! More than Peach was created two years ago by then 8 year old Bellen to "get multicultural crayons in the hands of every student." She began donating a variety of products and went on to create her very own acclaimed More than Peach brand. This to achieve a bigger mission to advance the empathy, leadership, and creativity for all students--excluding no one. Though More than Peach has now influenced even the "big brand" to tune in, the More than Peach mission is definitely its own. And part of what makes More than Peach so very special is that it was born from the innocence of a child--with everyone in mind--and that it recognizes & dignifies the voices, contributions, and talent of all with a much bigger mission in mind. Browse the site to learn more about the More than Peach movement and how to be involved!

Bellen Woodard: Founder & Creator of The More than Peach Project & Crayons, World's 1st Crayon Activist™, & Scholastic Back-to-School Cover Story!
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. Sparking an international movement, she's inspired many and her crayons have become part of the fabric of a nation (and even held at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture)! #MorethanPeach is about #MorethanCrayons!
