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 SAKALA in Cite Soleil, Haiti
This season, we’re celebrating the things that connect us all. We want to show kids that no matter where we live or what language we speak, we all care about the same things. We are partnering with the Global Fund for Children to break down barriers and open minds.
This month we feature SAKALA, the only youth community center in Cité Soleil, Haiti. Founded by Daniel Tillias as a PAX Christi peace building project, SAKALA aims to develop great courage and character in all of the children it serves, while helping to strengthen families and the community.
SAKALA is working toward a future where every child of Cité Soleil has free access to positive groups and programs, athletics, agronomy and education. They center serves over 300 kids, ages 4-25, through after school programs, educational scholarships, day camps, outdoor field trips and soccer camps.
As the most popular sport in Haiti – and many other countries around the world – SAKALA’s soccer team is the heart of the program. In addition to Global Giving Thursday proceeds, we’ll also be donating soccer jerseys and balls to SAKALA, as well as soccer loving kids in Italy, in Peru and the United States, as part of our new Citizens FC program.
When you make a purchase this month, consider adding a donation for the children in Cité Soleil. Even a little bit of love will go a long way! Learn more about SAKALA Learn more about Citizens FC
