Latest “Little Citizen” Tees Benefit The Global Fund for Children

We proudly launch our new “Little Citizens” tees and gift sets made exclusively for the Global Fund for Children (GFC). 50% of your purchase supports GFC, which finances local grassroots groups working with the most disadvantaged youth around the globe.

Every day is an opportunity to help “little citizens of the world.” Dress your child in clothes that make a difference. Find the new “Little Citizens” tees and gift sets online and in stores now.

Partners for nearly five years, Tea and GFC are proud of and grateful for our shared vision and achievements. Together, we celebrate the beauty of all cultures and bring dignity and opportunity to our most disadvantaged little citizens.

Every season, Tea designs a new Global Tee collection and gives 50% of the proceeds exclusively to GFC. GFC then funds nearly 350 grassroots organizations dedicated to helping children through innovative programs in 70 countries. Last year, Tea donated over $35,000 to GFC through the Little Citizens Tees Program.

This season, we have created Global Fund Gift Sets that combine the newly designed baby bodysuit and older-age hoodie with GFC book favorites: Global Babies and Children from A-Z.

Every purchase makes a difference for organizations like Ruchika Social Service Organization. Ruchika is the reason Maya Ajmera founded GFC over a decade ago. While traveling in India, Maya saw young children, many from nearby slums, selling goods in railway stations. She also learned about a small group of local women who created “train platform schools” to provide working children with basic literacy and education. Ruchika started small but today is impacting nearly 4,000 children and their families. Tea shares GFC’s belief that “small is mighty and beautiful.”

Learn more about Ruchika at www.ruchika.org and other Tea-supported organizations at www.globalfundforchildren.org.

To make your purchase, visit stores such as Mulberry Road (Boston) and Style Child (San Diego), or purchase gift sets online.
