Brett’s Trove “Children Creating Cool Clothes to Collect Coins for College”

Every once in awhile you come across someone or something that can truly inspire, enlighten and engage you. For me that someone was a pint-size powerhouse named Brett Burch.

But don’t let his size fool you. And  remember age is just a number. This elementary school student from DC is doing BIG things. The mighty second grader  has already one first place in the Edison Electric Institute Safety Fair Art Contest, received a letter from the White House signed by First Lady Michelle Obama thanking him for entering the 2011 White House Easter Egg Poster Contest, and won MVP for the Mighty Mites division during his first football homecoming game this past October. But what floored me the most about Brett, besides his beaming smile, is his creativity!

Brett's original work of art

This kid is seriously talented.He’s only  in the second grade and  making these seriously cool things like his Huh? ties and mugs! I was honored when Brett and his mom Melody asked if I would model his Huh? collection of ties, t-shirts, and mugs.

Here, I am pictured below at the studio speaking to Brett’s mom Melody, about all that Brett has accomplished and his future goals. (I have no doubt Brett’s success and accomplishments are a direct effect of Melody’s praise, compassion and support in all of Brett’s endeavors.)

Brett  recently created his artist/fashion Facebook page to highlight  his online boutique, Brett’s Trove, and also to provide family and kid-related information such as contests and events.  The boutique is filled with clothes and accessories trimmed with  his original artwork. A portion of the proceeds goes towards both his college fund and the Stephen Joel Trachtenberg Scholarship Program which offers selected DC high school students a full ride to George Washington University.  Help Brett get to college so he can continue his incredible success. Buy his Huh? ties, mugs, t-shirts and kicks on Zazzle  www.zazzle.com/brettstrove They would  make  great X-mas presents 😉  It’s all about  “Children Creating Cool Clothes to Collect Coins for College.” 

Oh and don’t forget to become a fan on Brett’s  Facebook page and help him reach his goal of 100,000 fans.

Merry Christmas xoxoxoxo
