Tea Partners with
The Global Fund for Children

The mission of The Global Fund for Children is to advance the dignity of children and youth 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're proud to support such a wonderful force for good. Our support takes many forms—we design two exclusive pajama sets each year and donate all proceeds directly to The Global Fund for Children. We also hold regular Give Back events during which we donate a portion of all our online sales to the GFC.

The Society for Rural Development in Jaipur, India

This season as we celebrate the color and culture of India, we also want to give back and make a difference in the lives of some of the children who live there.

Recently, two Tea employees traveled to Jaipur to meet the staff of Gram Bharati Samiti, or the Society for Rural Development. This non-profit organization partners with rural villages in the state of Rajasthan to educate women and girls about their right to information, education and healthcare.

They also restore ancient stepwells so more villages have access to clean and safe drinking water. And they teach girls a craft like how to weave carpets and dhurrie rugs, to embroider saris and sew cholis (the blouses worn beneath saris). When young girls have the ability to earn their own money, they are free from the threat of child marriage and have more opportunity for education and independence.

We recently visited three of the 17 villages that Gram Bharati Samiti works with, and met many of the young girls who have been educated and empowered. (Read more about the girls we met.)

We have been so inspired by the work of this non-profit organization, we asked The Global Fund for Children if all the money donated through our site could go directly to Gram Bharati Samiti.

So this spring, when you donate on a Global Giving Thursday or any day of the month, your funds will be helping Rekha, Buja, Prinka and other girls like them in rural villages near Jaipur.

Tea’s School Days: Shop with 15% off for you +
Donate 15% back to your school

You can help your school just by shopping for your favorite globally-inspired kids clothes from Tea Collection. We created Tea's School Days to expand our charitable efforts and give back to schools in a big way.

The 2015 Fall School Days program will be October 19th through October 25th.

How does it work? When you participate in School Days, we'll provide your school with a unique promo code that you can share with your school community, friends and family.

Shoppers will have seven days to enter the promo code at checkout. They'll get 15% off their order, free shipping (6-10 Business Days) AND Tea will donate 15% of the order total to your school!

How does it add up? We'll donate 15% of the merchandise total of every single order placed using the code back to your organization. (Pretty cool!)

For example, if 10 people from your community place an order of $100, Tea will write your school a check for $150. The more people shop, the more we donate. And there's no limit. It's that simple.

Tea Collection’s
Inspiring Mom Awards

Here at Tea, we’re always looking for ways to recognize remarkable moms. In 2012, we created our Inspiring Mom Awards to celebrate 10 years of our globally inspired children’s clothing—and to honor moms who embrace the world, too. This year, we’ll be awarding moms in the following categories: Encouraging Entrepreneur, Philanthropic Pioneer and Global Connector.

We invite you to nominate a mom you find inspiring and share their story. Nominations will close April 25th, and we’ll choose one mom from each category as a finalist. We’ll post our finalists to Facebook and ask our community to vote. One winner from each category (3 moms total) will receive the recognition they deserve, as well as $1,000 for the charity of their choice.
