The Passion and Purpose Behind Little Mizz Kit
As the mother of a daughter born with a birth defect, I am always concerned about her self-esteem and the kind of woman she is going to grow up to become. Helping build my daughter’s confidence has become my personal mission. We, as parents are the first and most significant influence on our children’s self-esteem. That’s why I created Little Mizz Kit, providing a bonding opportunity for parents and their daughters. Little Mizz Kit delivers a box filled with crafts and activities each month right to your doorstep. I believe that by focusing on the five pillars that Little Mizz Kit is built upon, we will develop our daughters into confident and inspired young women through fun and fabulous activities. These pillars include Arts & Crafts, Life Lessons, Fitness, Hot To’s, and Nutrition.
Little Mizz Kit is also a proud supporter of March of Dimes. The experiences we have had with our daughter and her birth defect gave this project soul, meaning and purpose. That’s why a portion of proceeds from every kit sold goes to the March of Dimes charity to support research and awareness for premature babies and infants with birth defects. Help us support this worthy cause. We also welcome any feedback or ideas that you have, so feel free to contact us anytime!
Founder & CEO
Nicole Gleeson was born and raised in Orange County, California. Her first job was working at Girl Mania, putting on birthday parties and teaching arts & crafts. As a young entrepreneur, Nicole started her own summer camps for girls, focusing on the arts, fashion and fitness. After college, Nicole started a career in the consumer goods industry and worked in corporate America for almost a decade. During that time Nicole met her husband, got married and moved to beautiful San Diego, where she resides today.
Throughout her years in corporate America, Nicole always felt a passion for children, especially young girls. It was when she became pregnant with her daughter that Nicole felt called to purse her passion project which became Little Mizz Kit.
Almost 15 weeks into her pregnancy Nicole and her Husband found out the devastating news that their daughter was diagnosed with gastroschisis. Determined to find the silver lining, Nicole leveraged this opportunity to channel her energy into a project that would positively impact her daughter and your girls everywhere. She wanted to create a movement that prioritizes the confidence and creativity of young women allowing them the courage to know that no obstacle is to large. No goal too lofty.
