Sharon Blumberg is a mom, artist, volunteer, and entrepreneur. She loves hiking, biking, yoga, and the arts. Her passion is to use art to inspire kids to dream big. She is the founder of a new brand called CHOOZE, whose mission is not only to encourage kids to be extraordinary, but to engage kids in using their talents to create a difference in the world. Sharon developed CHOOZE with the understanding that companies have a large influence on society and believes they have a responsibility to use that influence to create a positive impact. After being inspired by a TEDxSMU 2010 speaker, she integrated a new social business model called Good Returns into CHOOZE.
Sam Blumberg is nine years old and is Sharon’s oldest son. Sam loves basketball, reading, and is a talented artist. He enjoys participating in projects that help others. Last year he and his class designed and created bracelets that they sold to raise money for victims of the tsunami in Japan and the fire in Israel. He is currently in fourth grade at Akiba Academy.
