We were thrilled to host Kristin Lindsey, the CEO of the Global Fund for Children, a grantmaking organization that benefits vulnerable children worldwide, last week at our office.  Tea continues to raise funds for this amazing organization by donating proceeds from our Little Citizens line as well as designating certain days where we donate a percentage of our sales to their work.

During her visit, Kristin inspired Tea staff by sharing stories of the children and women aided by the programs they fund. She highlighted how they work with grassroots organizations led by community members who can make a greater, longer lasting impact compared to imported solutions.  We left that day feeling thankful for our partnership with such a wonderful organization.  To learn more about The Global Fund for Children’s work, visit www.globalfundforchildren.org.
