Feb. 5, 2013 - PRLog -- Lily Sandler, Teen Co-founder of rapidly growing Atlanta-based company BLAMtastic® and its offshoot, Baby BLAMtastic®, was selected to serve as a Junior Board Member by Independent Youth, Inc., organizer of Teen Entrepreneurship Symposiums, recently held in St. Louis and Charlotte. These symposiums educate teens on entrepreneurship through presentations by reputable, successful and engaging teen entrepreneurs. Teen entrepreneurs are flown in from across the country to hold break-out sessions on a specific area of entrepreneurship with hundreds of high school teens interested in exploring entrepreneurship themselves.

Then “tween” entrepreneurs, Lily and Melanie Sandler, started BLAMtastic® on a challenge by their mother, Renee Sandler, when the girls were just 9 and 10 years old.   BLAMtastic®’s popular products are available online and in thousands of retail outlets across the United States including Baby Depot.  They are also now available in South Korea, New Zealand and in Toys R Us stores throughout Canada.

"Working with Independent Youth to educate and inspire other young people is my passion.  It is a great honor to serve with such a distinguished Board of Directors." ----Lily Sandler

Now serving as president for her daughters’ fast growing company, Mrs. Sandler was quoted as saying "We started BLAMtastic® to teach our girls the power of innovation and hard work.  As the business grew and our outreach grew along with it, we realized we had the opportunity to share these life lessons with kids everywhere.  When companies look for innovation they overlook the younger set.  That is a mistake.  Young people have ideas that are not skewed by cynicism.  And that makes for real creativity and innovation.  With the proper guidance, the potential of these kids is limitless."
