Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Once a month, the child will receive an eco-friendly blank lunch box “canvas” and all the monthly-themed patches.

  • Reality:

    A subscription based model to provide one new bag as well as patches for the bag. The hero of this model is the ability to send the old one back to a kid who needs it.

  • Claim:

    Luke's Boxes are here to help your children be creative.

  • Reality:

    The ability for a young mind to have a blank canvas to create instead of purchasing a design by someone else is advantageous for the creativity of their mind.

  • Claim:

    We also are giving back 15% of our profit to help fight Multiple Sclerosis.

  • Reality:

    Luther Taylor, the founder, is a 16 year old that started his own business after his mother was diagnosed with MS in 2001. The funds will be strategically given back the MS community and the research involved in fighting MS. "It has always been Luther's goal to own his own business and help fight this horrific disease."

Bottom Line

Luke's Boxes is an extraordinary idea founded by an extraordinary young man. Lunch Boxes, through a subscription, are sent monthly with new themed patches to teach kids about creativity. The previously used lunch boxes/bags are able to be shipped back to be donated to kids in need in Luther's local community. Luther Taylor founded the model to support the fight against MS after his mother was diagnosed in 2001.
