Being a Review Blogger, I do get lots of products to check out. But, we do not keep ALL of the things we review. Why? Because if we did, my children would feel entitled and spoiled and would not want for much. That is NO good. No good at all. I want to raise children that are thankful and appreciate all they have. I also want them to have compassion and to think of others.
I grew up ALWAYS wanting to give give give. I STILL do this. My children see this and though my son is still a bit stubborn when it comes to giving this to others (or sharing, sigh), he is working on it. My daughter on the other hand? She is JUST like her mama 🙂
Schoola turns adorable outgrown clothes into money for your child’s school programs
What I am getting at, is that it is important to teach my kids to give and feel good about it, then to always receive. So, throughout the year (especially around Christmastime!!) we give. I fill up HUGE trash bags of toys, clothing and more and I give it away. My kids help with the process, so they see what I am doing and learn from it. They ask questions and I tell them that we are giving these things to people who need it more. People who don’t have many clothes for their children or toys for their little ones to play with. My kids ‘get it’ and they actually enjoy finding things they no longer need or play with.
I joined a campaign that I thought is awesome! It is about helping a school in need! We chose Yick Wo Elementary! This campaign is “20 Days of School” Adopt-a-School and focuses on “adopting” a school who would greatly benefit from additional funds to bring or bolster creative programs! I read through the schools and thought that Yick Wo Elementary would be a great one to spread the word about!
This is made possible through Schoola. In case you’re not familiar, Schoola is an online consignment store dedicated to recycling brand-name children’s clothes, with a portion of the proceeds going to schools in need. The innovative new program – which saves parents money and gives back at the same time – has been heralded by Fox News, the LA Times, Forbes and Parenting Magazine!!
So, every time you shop on Schoola (for every transaction that is tracked via MY unique referral code), Schoola will donate $1 to the school I selected to support! I am so excited to be able to help and I hope you will help us too, but shopping on Schoola (for school clothes at great prices!!), through my unique URL!
Another Way You Can REALLY Help Out!!
Request a Schoola donation bag! For every person who requests a Schoola donation bag via MY unique referral code, Schoola will donate $1 to the school I selected to support (Yick Wo Elementary). PLUS – when you donate the clothes and fill out the school information, $2 of every $5 made will go back to the school YOU chose to support. Win/win!! Woot!

I love that Schoola helps to pay it forward. What a great program!
I love this program. I think it is great that you are teaching your kids about the impact that they can have through giving.
April Smith Decheine says
What a great program. There is nothing better than teaching kids at an early age to give back and get involved in the community.
I love this idea. It is never too early to teach kids to pay it forward.
This is such a great program! I hope it helps lots of kids!
It is so important for or kids to give back. They don’t really know what it means to “want”!
it’s such a great idea to teach your children the importance of paying it forward and doing things for others for no reason
That is such a powerful lesson! I know donating clothes is something I try to always do seasonally!
Marina @ Mommy Snippets says
What an awesome program. So useful! Paying it forward is a great thing to do.
This is such a great program. I think that art is important for young minds and should definitely be encouraged.
I agree! It is very important to teach kids to feel good about helping others, instead of helping themselves. What a wonderful program!
Liz Mays says
Schools need our help so much! I’m really glad this program is in place and that you’re part of it!
Ann Bacciaglia says
I agree 1oo%. It is so important to give back to the community and it is equality important to teach our kids the importance of giving back.
This is great. I applaud you for being so giving and for raising your children to give too.
Schoola sounds AWESOME!!!! I love programs like this which are easy to use and are so helpful in our own community! Thanks of sharing!
Any program that gives back to the community and also teaches children the value of sharing and being of service is a win in my book.
Carly from The Puzzled Palate says
I am glad that we have figured out a way to share the wealth! I get a lot of food freebies- so I like donating extras to food banks!
Debbie L. says
Great way to pay forward – we pay forward all of our items we no longer need or use.
This is such a great campaign! I love how everyone wins!
Not only is this a great program but I love that you are using it to teach your children a message. Every parent should do that! 🙂
This is a great way to give back. What an awesome program to be a part of.
Such a great way to give back! I love that it’s going towards and arts program!
Jenn @TheRebelChick says
This is such a great idea for little ones! It is so important to teach them generosity from an early age!
Everyday Living with Chrys says
What a great program. I have never heard of this before. Going to check it out.
Art really can be such a fundamental of learning for children. I have one child in my life who excels at it and would be lost without it in her life.
I love saving money on school clothes! It’s just around the corner!
Debbie Denny says
That is a great lesson and way to teach young people. Good

Schoola sounds like a great program. Great way to get rid of clothes and help a school.
This si such a great idea and a great lesson to teach our little ones.
Carly Anderson says
I love the idea that Schoola has. I hope that more and more people begin to participate!
I agree. We are so blessed to have so much. We donate all the time and I feel it is important to have my son participate and learn to help others!
It’s never too early to start teaching kids about giving back and helping others. I did not know about this program, it’s wonderful.
This sounds so great. I like that they help your kid’s school and they offer pre-loved clothes for good prices too!
Since I became a mom, I’ve become much more aware of just how many needy kids there are out there. I love this program. The one thing kids in need must have is quality education.
I love this program, and I love that you’re encouraging your kids to get involved. It’s so nice to see generosity being taught to the young ones.
I think it is important to teach kids about paying it forward. It’s especially good to do so at a young age.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I think giving back is a great lesson to be able to teach our children. This is an awesome program.
Kay Adeola says
This is a great program,I like to teach my kids the value of giving back.
This is such a great program. We tend to buy clothes on consignment (and many clothes are gifted to my son) and then we try to either consign or donate what we don’t need.
Cassie @ Southeast by Midwest says
This is such a great idea. I really love that the school you’re adopting is trying to find an art program!
