Public school education is particularly near and dear to our hearts. In 2011, we started partnering with two charities that value the importance of fostering and promoting safe, happy and effective learning environments: DonorsChoose.org and Teach For America.
DonorsChoose.org is an online nonprofit that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on the site, and people can give any amount toward any project. When a project reaches its funding goal, DonorsChoose.org ships the materials to the school. Donors receive photos of the project taking place, a letter from the teacher and insight into how every dollar was spent.Visit DonorsChoose.org to learn more >
Teach For America is a national organization committed to the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids living in poverty get an excellent education. In order to accomplish this, Teach For America handpicks recent college graduates to teach in urban or rural schools for a total of two years.Visit Teach For America to learn more >
Garments for Good
Whenever possible, we like to use our creative resources to lend support, designing T-shirts and other items to sell in our stores and online with net proceeds going back to the charitable partner. Recently, we introduced Garments for Good to create products in partnership with St. Anthony High School, Friends of the High Line and the National Park Foundation.
