(Give) Back to School

I hate to even say it, but September is around the corner!  We may not like it, but we have no choice!  Back to School, means Back to School Shopping…and what better way to shop, then to GIVE BACK while doing so?!

Here are four awesome brands that will have you looking cool for school, while giving BACK:

1. Yoobi: colorful school supply line, with everything from pens and pencils to notebooks…for every item purchased, one is donated to a US classroom in need!

2. Skyline Socks: super cute socks that represent your city or team, while giving back!  For each pair sold, they donate a pair of socks to that city.

3. Swell: hydrate with this eco-friendly bottle, while helping to provide clean water to those in need via Unicef.

4. State Bags: purchase one of these colorful backpacks, while giving one to an American child in need!

Enjoy the last few days of Summer ~ Happy (back to school) Shopping Everyone! 🙂
