Give the Gift that Gives Back: Little Citizens Pajamas

The holiday rush is upon us.  This year, in the midst of all the gift-buying, wrapping, cooking, traveling, and relatives, Tea wants you to take a moment to focus on the core of the holiday:  giving and gratitude.

At Tea, we’re thankful for our continued success, our loyal fan base, and our dedicated, creative staff.  We’re also thankful that we all have food, shelter, and most importantly, our families.  We know that this isn’t the case for many people in the world and that’s why we believe in giving back by donating 50% of all proceeds from our Little Citizens line to the Global Fund for Children.

 

This holiday by purchasing our Little Citizen pajamas for all the little citizens on your shopping list, you will also be donating to the Global Fund for Children– an organization that works to advance the dignity of vulnerable children and youth by supporting and strengthening grass root groups and effectively utilizing media to highlight the disparities experienced by this demographic.

Give the greatest gift of all; partner with Tea as we work with the Global Fund for Children to ensure all the little citizens of the world have a voice.  Explore our Little Citizens girls pajamas and boys pajamas today. (View the inspiration and pajamas picture in behind the design.)

This year, how do you plan to give back?  Please share your stories of giving and gratitude below in our comments section.

Honor Día de los Muertos with A Fun Puzzle

Behind the Design Bonus: Día de los Muertos Downloadable Puzzle

A little while back, we wrote about how much we enjoyed our trip to Mexico City. We had a particularly fun day on a colorful boat made even more memorable by the mariachi band that played for us from their very own boat. We took that fabuloso experience and gave it a little Day of the Dead twist by turning our band into a trio of skeletons on the Mariachi en Barco Tee.

On November 2nd (not coincidentally close to Halloween), the Día de los Muertos holiday is celebrated throughout Mexico and in many Latino communities around the world (and here in San Francisco).

On the San Francisco site, I learned that “Dia de los Muertos is a traditional Meso-American holiday dedicated to our honoring our ancestors. In Mexico, neighbors gather in local cemeteries to share food, music, and fun with their extended community, both living and departed. The celebration acknowledges that we still have a relationship with our ancestors and loved ones that have passed away.

In San Francisco, Day of the Dead has been celebrated in the Mission district since the early 70s with art, music, performances and a walking procession.”

Help your kids learn about and honor their own ancestors with this Día de los Muertos puzzle from our Modern Mexico Activity Book. Just click on the image below and print it out at your favorite size.

I’ll be thinking about my loved ones too – especially my grandmother Mabel, who passed away 2 years ago at the age of 97 in Tucson, Arizona, very close to the time of the Day of the Dead.

Inside Studio T: Sample Sale in Action

Every Friday we share a weekly behind-the-scenes photo taken in our offices at Tea. This could be anything – great employee outfits, our sources of inspiration, shots from our parties, or photos of us hard at work. For more sneak peeks behind the scenes at Tea click here.

Last week we mentioned we were hosting a Sample Sale for our local Tea fans. It was a wonderful success, with crowds of people showing up at T2 in San Francisco both weekends to buy clothes from past seasons.

Tea fans braved long lines with their children, starting early in the morning before doors were even open. Over a thousand people turned out over the two weekends.

We loved the opportunity to meet our local customers face-to-face, and meet all the kids that showed up:

A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped us set up and break down our Sample Sale! We couldn’t have done it without you. And thank you to our customers, who after hours of waiting in line still greeted us with a smile when they walked in the door. You are why we love doing what we do.

Inside Studio T: Sample Sale

Every Friday we share a weekly behind-the-scenes photo taken in our offices at Tea. This could be anything – great employee outfits, our sources of inspiration, shots from our parties, or photos of us hard at work. For more sneak peeks behind the scenes at Tea click here.

Last week we hosted a Tea Sample Sale at our offices to clear out stock from previous seasons. Before we opened the doors to the masses (who were lined up around the block), I took a few shots of some girl’s and women’s clothes that were hanging on the racks. I love our Sample Sales for the opportunity to see patterns and styles from past seasons that I loved, and have forgotten about.

And there’s another Sample Sale this weekend, at our offices in San Francisco! $5 entry, with all entry fees going to the Global Fund for Children. Details are as follows:

Location: 117 Wisconsin Street, San Francisco 94107

Days: Friday August 26th, 9am – 3pm and Saturday August 27th, 9am – 1pm.
