In late November of 2011, Tea donated one item of clothing for every order placed to the Global Fund for Children, an organization that helps advance the dignity of at-risk children by supporting and strengthening grass root groups and effectively utilizing media to highlight the disparities experienced by this demographic. Our response was amazing, and thanks to you we were able to donate over 2,500 clothing items to at-risk children throughout the world. The Global Fund for Children was so overjoyed with this donation that they sent us this lovely card, pictured below.
Thank you for continuing to help us support this wonderful organization. Learn more about our partnership with the Global Fund for Children on our website. Or, shop our Little Citizens line where proceeds from these items benefit the Global Fund for Children.

Though we love designing and creating inspired children’s clothing, children’s education is one issue that is always top of mind, as parents and citizens of the world. This is why we continue to support the efforts of The Global Fund for Children, whose mission is to advance the dignity of children and youth around the world.
The graphic below speaks directly to the issue of global education and serves as a reminder of the progress that still needs to be made throughout the world. We hope you find it as interesting as we do and continue to support organizations like the Global Fund for Children and other non-profits that help the little citizens of the world.
