A couple of weeks ago, I told you about a great way to help schools in need while shopping for name brand clothes for your kids at huge savings or donating clothing they have outgrown. 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.
In our last post we shared the story of a wonderful school in the Bronx called KIPP Academy that is trying to raise $25,000 to fund their music program. If you want to refresh your memory, you can watch the video below.
About KIPP Academy:
A small school in the Bronx, KIPP Academy works hard to support kids who need all the help they can get. Ninety-five percent of its students qualify for free or reduced-cost lunch. More than one in seven receives special education services. Music helps KIPP Academy reach and engage every child who enters its doors. The slogan on the Music Room wall sets the stage—All of Us Will Learn Music. No matter what backgrounds they come from or what challenges they face, they learn lessons together that will serve them the rest of their lives.
Right now, Schoola is extending a 20% discount to Mommy Ramblings’ readers when they shop Schoola donates $1 to help KIPP Academy. The code to get 20% off your order is BacktoSchoola20 and it is good through August 20, 2014. This code has a limit of one use per customer.
You can help KIPP Academy and your own school:
You can shop on Schoola for back-to-school clothing, even clothing new with tags and for every transaction that is processed by going through this link, Schoola will donate $1 to KIPP Academy. That’s not all, everyone that requests a donation bag through the same link will help too because Schoola will donate $1 for every requested bag to Kipp Academy. Perhaps the best part is, if you send in a donation bag of clothing, you can fill out the name of a school you support and for every $5 in sales, Schoola will donate $2 to the school you selected!!! That’s a real win-win for Kipp Academy and the school of your choice!!! You can follow Schoola on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date on all the latest happenings.
