Unfortunately, it's all too common for these programs to get the short end of the stick, art programs cut, phys-ed and recess taking a backseat to standardized test prep, music budgets slashed, and field trips on the endangered species list. Which is why I'm excited to be partnering with Schoola today on their #WhyISchoola campaign. If you're unfamiliar, Schoola is one part online second-hand store, one part fundraising platform, with 40% of proceeds benefiting schools - specifically targeting programs such as art, music, phys-ed, and field trips (read the full run down of how it works here). Programs that often get cut. Programs that often make an enormous difference in children's and teen's lives. Lives like mine.
The dress I'm wearing was kindly sent to me by Schoola, stay tuned for a full outfit post on Wednesday. Opinions are my own.
