With Back To School Season in full swing it’s time to start buying school clothes. What if I told you there was a way to both buy AND donate clothes and in the process you help save a school’s art program?? Let me tell you about Schoola.
Schoola is an online shop dedicated to recycling brand-name children’s clothes, with 40% of the proceeds going to schools in need. The innovative new program – which saves parents money and gives back at the same time – has been heralded by Fox News, the LA Times, Forbes and Parenting Magazine.
Right now School is doing a promotion called: “20 Days of Schoola” Adopt-a-School and will focus on “adopting” one of three schools who would greatly benefit from additional funds to bring or bolster creative programs. I’m partnering up with them to support:
Yick Wo Elementary – Goal: $25,000 to fund an art program
Art can be one of the most important parts of a young student’s life. It teaches kids that it’s okay to be creative and take risks at school—not just in the art room, but in math, languages, and every other subject they study. The educational benefits of an art program are well known, but it’s still not covered by most public school budgets. The parents at Yick Wo Elementary make sure that their school’s students have art class anyway, and Schoola is forming a community to help them do it.
How it Works
*Shop on Schoola: For every transaction Schoola will donate $1 to Yick Wo Elementary.
*Request a Schoola Donation Bag: For every person who requests a Schoola donation bag, Schoola will donate $1 to Yick Wo Elementary. PLUS – when you donate the clothes and fill out YOUR school information, $2 of every $5 made will go back to the school YOU chose to support. Win/win!
Art Needs Our Help
One of the first classes that usually go with budget cuts is art and kids today need an outlet for their creativity. I know personally I loved art class growing up. It let me do and think things using my vivid imagination and I still have some of the artwork from years ago. Same thing with my kiddos. I have a “hamburger cup” my son made in pottery class that sits on my desk daily. With Schoola everybody wins so help out today!
