My son didn’t show an interest in music until he tried out for middle school band.  He was trying out to play drums but ended up being assigned the trumpet.  While he wasn’t thrilled about his band director’s choice of instrument for him, it took just a few weeks for him to warm up to the trumpet and since starting middle school he has absolutely blown me away when he plays the trumpet.  It’s been so great to watch him gain confidence and be proud of himself because of the progress he’s made and the amazing performances his class put on three times a year give me chills.

Sadly, there are many schools that don’t get funding for art and music programs so the students don’t get to experience the pride and joy of creating beautiful music and performing what they’ve worked so hard to learn and accomplish, in front of hundreds of proud parents.

Schoola children's clothing shopSchoola, an online shop dedicated to recycling brand-name children’s clothes, with 40% of the proceeds going to schools in need, including your child’s school, gives parents like you and I the ability to give schools that aren’t normally provided enough funding for art and music programs, the funding they need to create a program that their students will benefit from in amazing ways for years to come.   What parent doesn’t want to save money on brand-name clothes for their kids and help a school develop and maintain a music or arts program at the same time?

I can’t believe how quickly my kids grow, especially my daughter.  Do girls really grow faster than boys?  It seems like every two months I have to buy her an entire wardrobe because she’s outgrown the old one.  Schoola gives kids the opportunity to wear brand-name clothes for much less than what you’d normally pay.  That is great, but this opportunity is about more than being able to buy slightly worn brand-name clothing for my kids for way less than what I’d pay at the store; it’s also about having the opportunity to teach my kids that giving back to those in need is so important.

Shopping is something we all do.

Our kids all need clothes.

Feel good about how your purchase will help kids at KIPP Academy and other schools by shopping at Schoola!

About KIPP Academy and their fundraising goal

KIPP Academy’s goal is to raise $25,000 to fund a music program.

A small school in the Bronx, KIPP Academy works hard to support kids who need all the help they can get. Ninety-five percent of its students qualify for free or reduced-cost lunch. More than one in seven receives special education services. Music helps KIPP Academy reach and engage every child who enters its doors. The slogan on the Music Room wall sets the stage—All of Us Will Learn Music.  No matter what backgrounds they come from or what challenges they face, they learn lessons together that will serve them the rest of their lives.

The 20 Days of Schoola starts July 28th and ends August 16th, 2014, so head over to Schoola and request a donation bag and/or shop for clothes for your child to help raise money for KIPP Academy’s music program and your child’s school!

Review of Bersica Futurewear: high-tech and innovative clothing line for children, a giveaway + 30% off coupon code

Bersica Futurewear uses a new finishing technology called NanoSphere® on their fabrics which provides a natural self-cleaning effect and an extremely high level of liquid and dirt repellence, something that I as a mom appreciate.  Who knew I would have cared how dirt repellent clothes were 10 years ago before I had kids?

Madelyn loves her Bersica Futurewear clothes (photo right) and even said "I love these Mommy, thank you!" when I put the pieces on her for the first time. She got right up on her step stool in the kitchen and starting posing for pictures right away.. too cute. I don’t know how I feel about the tongue sticking out though.

Bersica Futurewear Benefits:

  • Highly abrasion resistant
  • Remains at its highest performance even after extreme spills and washings
  • These clothes make a tremendous amount of sense to wear while kids are active such as when riding a bike or at the playground.
  • Even when your child is sweating the lining of the pants or shorts will not stick to your child’s skin
  • The inside texture of the pants and shorts is very soft
  • The stitching is great.
  • Can be machine washed – for other washing and care instructions visit the website.

Bersica Futurewear fabric benefits

  • Extremely water and liquid repellent
  • Extremely oil and dirt repellent.
  • Breathable
  • Protects from UV rays
  • Self-Cleaning
  • Contains no harmful chemicals.
  • Requires less washing saving you money

Bersica Futurewear is available for toddlers and kids from 12 months all the way to 12 years old and in a few colors and most pieces are in the $30 range. The benefits of Bersica Futurewear are great and the concept is amazing and much needed in the world of parenthood.

Watch a video on how truly repellent Bersica Futurewear children’s clothing is. It’s a pretty amazing video!
