As the hustle of Thanksgiving winds down, we strive to approach the rest of the holiday season with just as much generosity and gratitude—particularly on one of our favorite days of the year, Giving Tuesday. This year we are overjoyed to announce our support for the incredible non-profit Teach For America.
Teach For America’s primary focus is addressing educational inequality (which is the gap that low-income students and schools face every day with less-than-ideal resources and opportunities). At Teach For America, corps members teach for at least two years in disenfranchised communities, often going on to dedicate their lives to teaching. Because of these incredible teachers, more girls and young women will have a greater chance of success in life.
This Giving Tuesday, we’re showing our support for this important organization with a $25,000 donation to the Teach For America STEM program. We’re also putting 2,000 pairs of Rothy’s on the feet of teachers so they can educate students in comfort and style.
