You may have recently read about Schoola, a Bay Area start-up, in a recent San Francisco Chronicle feature. Schoola sells donated name-brand children's clothing at discounted prices and donates $2 of every $5 of the proceeds back to schools. You donate the clothes, you get to choose which school receives the proceeds. Buy without remorse and know that almost half of the proceeds will benefit today's youth.
What a perfect option for shopping as we approach the holidays! Schoola has asked me to consider what I think the holidays are for and I believe that their mission sums up exactly what I love about the holidays. In fact, I'll break it out into hashtags for you:
#HolidaysR4...Dressing up your kids for lifelong memories through perfect holiday photos without breaking the bank.
#HolidaysR4...Giving back to your local community and embracing the true spirit of the holidays.
Want to try to win some Schoola cash? Use the hashtag #HolidaysR4 to Tweet or Facebook your own holiday moments. Schoola will randomly choose entries to win one of three $25 gift cards to Schoola. Enter as many memories as you want before November 16 to win!
Don't forget to visit Schoola to look for fantastic holiday clothes. There are Baby Gap holiday dresses for under $6 and boys holiday sweaters from Gymboree for $4! My readers get 25% off your first purchase with the code TRYSCHOOLA at checkout.
Check out Schoola! It is consignment online with a philanthropic twist.
