We are proud to partner with the Global Fund for Children and have the opportunity to give back to communities near and far. Last October, we kicked off our Global Giving Thursday campaign where each third Thursday, we automatically match all donations made at checkout. In December 2015 we decided to take our efforts one step further in the spirit of the holiday season and launched a Buy One, Give One program that directly benefited one of the Global Fund for Children’s grantee partners, The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project, located in Washington, D.C.. During this time, when you purchased one of our holiday styles, we set aside a similar style to donate to The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project. We were blown away by the results of this campaign and humbled to know our customers share our passion of giving back.
On March 21st, 2015, Tea Collection in conjunction with the GFC and the HCPP, were able to donate 7,000 pieces of clothing… because of you! The event took place at DC General shelter, a converted hospital where hundreds of families live at any given time. Teams of volunteers spent the morning creating a “clothing closet” for the families and sorted all of the individually wrapped clothing into gender and size. The vastness of all the products spread out onto multiple tables that lined the hallway, with extra in boxes, ready to go if need be. As the event began and the closet opened, the families at the shelter streamed in eager to be able to come and pick out brand new outfits for their kids.
