In just a few days the kids here in Colorado begins school. As a matter of fact a few of the schools have already begun. While my kids love having all the new things that makes going back to school fun, I personally hate shopping. I hate the crowds and the back to school rush. I hate lining at the cash registers waiting on moms and dads to purchase their gazillion composition notebooks, pens and even crayons. The one thing that I don’t mind is the clothes shopping and Gymboree makes it so easy to shop for my little one. I have been shopping at Gymboree even before she was born and when I decided to stock up her nursery, Gymboree was one of the lines that I stocked it with. So there was no hesitation when it comes to buying clothing for back to school that Gymboree was obviously one of the stores that I would head to.
While Gymboree is known for their high quality clothing and their beautiful lines that are all mix and matchable, this year Gymboree is raising money to fulfill arts & crafts requests made by teachers on DonorsChoose.org. Gymboree aims to fulfill at least one classroom request in every county where there is a Gymboree retail location. You can get involved by donating at Gymboree stores, Gymboree outlet stores, and online.
Just take a look at the video on the collaboration of Gymboree and DonorsChoose named “Gymboree’s Let’s Color Together”.
Gymboree believes that creative expression is essential to all kids, yet many don’t have access to basic tools like crayons, markers and paint. Just in time for the back-to-school season, they’re teaming up with DonorsChoose.org to bring coloring supplies to students nationwide until 9/7. The money donated goes to projects in the highest-need schools in the donor’s community that has the least amount of time remaining before the project request expires. Even $1 supplies a child with a pack of crayons for the year. Donate today to a school in your community, and help give kids a brighter future.
We are ready for Back to School thanks to Gymboree and we were also able to donate. Just check out the amazing outfits we were able to pick up in store. There is nothing like knowing that kids around the country are in need of arts and crafts supplies, and I’m grateful that Gymboree has decided to help out in such a great cause. So while you’re out shopping their beautiful back to school clothing line that is currently available, be sure to donate and help give kids a brighter future by donating today to a school in your community.
