It’s such a great feeling to shop and do good at the same time! When I saw this tee at J.Crew, I loved the idea and of course, as a former teacher, I know that every little bit counts.
This tee supports DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit that makes it easy to support public education teachers. It’s very simple, really. Teachers post what they need (books for their class, art supplies, etc.) and people like us can help out. I found a middle school teacher who needs 90 copies of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. I know what that’s like. I once bought 30 copies of Romeo and Juliet from my own pocket for a classroom library…and that wasn’t enough. All 90 of my students had to share those 30 copies.
It’s great that through this platform, I can share what I find with lots of people. 100% of proceeds of this tee I’m wearing goes directly to DonorsChoose.org. J.Crew also has this one, that helps Teach for America.
I love supporting companies that are doing good things for many communities. And I especially love teachers! Don’t you?
