Although this is a sponsored post, this post holds very dear to my heart. It is about education. I also do believe in schools and community organizations coming together to help their schools. I love that the government helps but community involvement is SO important. Please keep an open heart when reading the following message I was asked to share.
I came from a unique school situation. I grew up in the inner city and raised catholic. My
parents chose to send my sister and I to our private school for religious reasons. Once we were old enough we were able to choose to continue our catholic education. I loved having electives but there was little funding and concentration to these programs. Our schools mainly focussed on just academics. When I was younger, I wanted to be an artist. I let that dream go when I realized once I hit college I was very limited on how much I knew about art. We only had one art teacher for our entire school. What is Schoola.com?
Once I graduated college and had a career, I came to realize that I had a passion for education and learning. I now teach in our public school system and I realize that some programs need help.
So Schoola is a website where you can save MONEY on buying back to school items & help out schools in need. Schoola.com is a website where that sells consigned brand-name clothes. 40% off the proceeds goes to a school in need to fund one of their creative programs.
I was able to pick one of three programs in their “20 Days of Schoola” campaign. With my husband being related to the creator of “Dennis the Menace”, Hank Ketcham…and my love for art–I chose the following school to help (there were only 3 to pick from):
Yick Wo Elementary – Goal: $25,000 to fund an art program
Art teaches kids to take risks and be creative in life, 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 to help:
- Shop at Schoola.com and a donation will be made to Yick Wo Elementary. They will give $1 for every purchase made.
- Donate your clothes to sell and they will give $2 for every $5 will go to support you school of choice. All you have to do is request a Schoola donation bag HERE.
