When Jacob started Kindergarten and began bringing home awesome art projects, I started an Art Gallery wall in my bedroom. That way, his creations are the last thing I see before I go to to bed at night and the first thing I see in the morning. This one little wall is only a sample of the many beautiful pieces of art my son has created over the last four years. Some are awe-inspiring, like his replication of Van Gogh’s Sunflower:
Some are, well, interesting, like his Mother’s Day Word Art project, in which he wrote many words that he feels describes me. I’m embarrassing because I call him my little Monkey Pants (although not in public anymore). I’m also a liar because he recently found out the truth about the Easter Bunny and Santa. This was his witty way of making sure I stay humble, I guess. I do love that he thinks I’m pretty! I think it’s funny that he thinks I’m a good cook, considering the most masterful thing I make for him are Peanut Butter and Fluff sandwiches.
None of the projects on my Jacob’s Art Gallery wall would be possible without quality art programs in schools. As often as I complain about Jacob’s school district, I have to give them credit: they make sure art is a priority, at least in elementary school.
Help Give Yo Wick a Great Art Program
Art programs in school are as vital to a child’s future as English and Math programs. While English, math, science and social studies form the core curriculum and give kids the basics they need to make it in life, art gives them the chance to explore creative uses of those basics. It brings them together in a new and exciting way. For children like Jacob, who learn by doing, it is often one of the only ways to drive home the messages taught in the core classes.
The parents at Yo Wick Elementary School in San Francisco, CA need your help to get their school a great art program. Schoola, an amazing resource for children’s back to school clothing, is on board to give them a hand, but they can’t do it alone.
Shop Schoola For Back-to-School Clothes and Help Yo Wick & your own school!
This is where you come in. First, if you haven’t heard of Schoola, let me quickly tell you a little about them. They work in two ways:
- As a shopping site for parents to find fantastic back-to-school clothes at an amazing price. With finds under $5, “new with tags” collections and more, you can find the most stylish name-brand clothes for your child at a fraction of the retail price. I’m talking major savings, like up to 90%!
- As a donation site to repurpose your child’s gently worn clothes. We all have barely-worn clothes sitting in our children’s closets. Even though I try to maximize my spending and only get what Jake need, we still end up with clothing that he wore once- or not at all- by the time he moves on to the next size. Schoola will send you a donation bag so you can give those clothes to them. The money the raise goes to supporting schools like Yo Wick. You can also designate a school to receive the funds!
So how does this help Yo Wick get an art program? Well, let’s talk about that.
- For every transaction made through my Schoola link, $1 will go to helping Yo Wick
- For every person who requests a Schoola donation bag via that link, Schoola will donate $1 to Yo Wick.
- On top of that, when you donate the clothes and fill out your school information, $2 of every $5 made will go back to the school you chose to support. Win/win for you and Yo Wick!
It’s really a win/win/win situation. You get great clothes at an affordable price, get to clean out your closet and both your school and Yo Wick get some help funding important programs!
