It’s time to pack up the sandals, beach bags and pool toys. My daughters began school two days ago and we are trying to get back on routine. On the first day, they both came home with activity schedules and I was pleased to see that Art remains in their school (albeit one day a week). With many schools lacking funding, creative arts programs are generally the first to go. Fortunately, Schoola.com is here to help.
Schoola is an online shop dedicated to recycling brand-name children’s clothes, with 40% of the proceeds going to schools in need.
In my first post, I outlined how Schoola can help raise money for your school. But now, my daughters are ready to shop! I challenged my 9 year old to find a complete outfit and tally up how much it would cost (like how I threw in a math problem?). Always ready for a challenge involving fashion, she shopped the “Grade Schoola” section and found a pretty adorable outfit which totaled $32.oo for a shirt, jeans and shoes. But if you use code BacktoSchoola20 (limit one use per customer), you will receive an additional 20% off bringing the total of her outfit to just $27.00!
Better yet? Forty percent of the proceeds will go to a school in need (which you can designate). Right now, I have selected Yick Wo Elementary in Brooklyn, NY whose parents have taken it upon themselves to raise $25,000 to save the art program. I just could not pass up the opportunity to help the cute faces in this video.
