you shop, we give.
Since the beginning of our journey, it has been a dream of mine to have Giving weaved into the very core of this business. Although we are small, it is very important to me that we are able to donate a portion of our earnings to a cause that is very near to us; not just occasionally, but year-round.
That’s why a portion of every single purchase is used to buy and donate books to elementary schools in the Dallas, TX metroplex. So far, we have donated more than 695 books, and we are just getting started. (last updated December 2, 2020)
We are big believers in the power of education, and we know that reading is one of the most important things young children can do. However, it’s often hard for teachers to fill their classroom libraries. Funding is rarely provided by the school district, so teachers have to reach into their own wallets to fill their classrooms with books. This is why we are so passionate about getting books into the hands of teachers and their students. And because we actually purchase the books and drop them off to schools, we are able to see the impact of these books first-hand.
Additionally, we are passionate about purchasing books that represent under-represented groups. Children need to be able to see themselves in the books that they read, and unfortunately that is not the case for many students. We have committed ourselves to filling our local classrooms with books that represent different skin colors, backgrounds, abilities, interests, and so much more.
We are so thankful for every purchase from our customers, because it not only helps our family, but helps classrooms all around our area. We truly would not be able to do this program without you, so you will likely hear us say “THANK YOU!” a hundred times or more.
With love and gratitude,
