Kids are natural givers, so we started teaching our oldest about charitable donations when he turned 3. Some ways to help him understand was to read stories about other kids doing charitable work. Another idea is to explain when you see people in need, and help them understand how or why a someone becomes homeless or why a family may need shelter. Most importantly find a charity that they can relate to, kids can relate to the idea of giving to other kids. Which is why I’m excited to be partnering with Schoola to bring you some information on the Malala Fund.
Schoola is an online retailer of preloved women’s, kids’, and baby clothes that gives 40% of proceeds to schools, offering fundraising options. They recently partnered with Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai to raise money for the Malala Fund to support girls’ education projects in the most vulnerable communities from all around the world. Did you know that 62 million girls in the world are not in school because of poverty or violence? With my oldest in preschool and my daughter starting next year, this is a non-profit organization that we are very passionate about.
Step 1: Request a donation bag from Schoola here. Fill out your info and they’ll send you a donation bag like the one above.
Step 2: Clean out your closets! Fill the bag with preloved clothes that include kids’ and women’s too.
Step 3. Close your bag and drop it off at your post office, shipping is free! The items will be sold on Schoola.com, and 40% of the sales proceeds will go to the Malala Fund. Schoola is able to raise an average of $40 per bag for the Malala Fund.
Not only can you help out by purging out those closets but you can also by shop the Malala collection where 40% of the proceeds from any item purchased will go to the Malala Fund.
I personally love buying secondhand clothes especially when you can find them in excellent used condition and amazing prices.
Here are some of our gorgeous pieces from Schoola that includes brand new Gymboree! And they even have stylish pieces for women too, so mama’s go ahead and splurge on yourself because it’s all going to a good cause! I’m kind of an addict when it comes to oversized sweaters in winter, so I was super excited to score this gorgeous sweater below new with tags!
The kids were sporting their Schoola looks the other night while we attended a birthday party. I loved my daughters top paired with a jean jacket, you can see it in the picture below where she’s dancing. And my son wore his new Gymboree attire (and pretty handsome I must say) thanks to Schoola!
We’ve already filled 3 bags and now we’re challenging you to request a bag and donate!
