It began as just a few videos we made for fun. My younger brother-in-law Robby (who plays the character of Kid President in the videos) is one of my favorite people to spend time with. He and I love making things together and never dreamed our journey would take us the places it has (the White House, the UN, meeting Beyoncé, etc). Who knew a little can and string could connect you to everyone from bestselling authors to incredible teachers to world renowned actors and actresses to awesome kids or even to the President of the United States?
The idea for Kid President came a few years ago. My wife and I had just launched a summer camp for kids who want to change the world. We were blown away by the ideas and the hearts of the students there. These students wanted nothing more than to leave the world better than they found it. After seeing their creativity and compassion I couldn't help but think - wouldn't it be cool if we listened to kids more? When we got home we filmed the very first Kid President video.
