The Global Fund for Children
is a wonderful force for good in the world. Our
longtime charity partner, the GFC works with local nonprofit organizations to advance the dignity of children and young people around the world.
Since 1997, the GFC has invested nearly $31 million in more than 575 grassroots organizations in 78 countries, helping transform the lives of 9 million of the world’s most vulnerable children.
At Tea, we believe in and wholeheartedly support their mission. Our support takes a variety of forms…
- Every third Thursday of the month is our Global Giving Thursday. We
match every single donation given to the Global Fund for Children through our site on this day. (You can choose to donate when you check out).
- Each year we design several exclusive (and adorable) pajama sets that we sell around the winter holidays. We donate all proceeds from the sale of these PJs directly to the Global Fund for Children.
- We also hold regular Give Back events throughout the year, during which we donate a portion of all our online sales to the GFC.
Spotlight on Fundación UBECI in Quito, Ecqudor
This season as we celebrate the color and culture of Bolivia and Argentina, we are partnering with the Global Fund for Children to give back and make a difference in the lives of some of the children who live in South America.
This month we feature Fundación UBECI, which serves working children and street children by offering educational opportunities in the form of a mobile classroom.
The Global Fund for Children supports their Working Children program, which serves children ages 1-16 in six open-air markets around Quito. The program focuses on school readiness, early math and reading, school enrollment for younger children and academic support for older children. Find out more about Fundación UBECI
When you make a purchase this month, consider adding a donation for the children in Quito. Even a little bit of love will go a long way!
