I don’t think I’ve ever asked anyone of my readers to do anything like this, but I believe this is a more than worthy cause and something that can really help people that deserve something as simple as school uniforms for kids on the other side of the world from us here.
I’m taking the following write-up directly from another blogger HERE who has said it better than I ever could, but the message is there. It’s simple, but you need to act quick as the deadline is tomorrow, Dec. 31st.
Please, think about it. But, not for too long 😉
MEET TAILORED FOR EDUCATION
Tailored for Education is a Boston-based nonprofit that provides school uniforms to kids around the globe who can’t attend without one. More than six years ago, the organization started with a small school in Haiti with 200 children and have since provided just over 50,000 uniforms and are now working in ten countries with 19 partners!
STARTED BY WOMEN LIKE YOU
Tailored for Education was founded in Boston in the Spring of 2011 by two friends who love children and saw a seemingly “easy” fix to a big problem.
The organization believes that every child has the right to receive an education and a uniform should not stand in their way. All of the uniforms they provide also help create jobs for local economies through local sewing, tailoring, etc. Tailored for Education wants to leave the communities of the children they help in a better place: more sustainable jobs and more children in school. Their goal is simple and would not be attainable without the help of donors.
