Support Educational Charities with Charity T-Shirts for a Cause
FEATURED CHARITY: Children’s Literacy Initiative
Derek Zoolander tried, but the Children’s Literacy Initiative (CLI) teaches kids how to read good a little bit better! It does this by coaching teachers, stocking classrooms with books, and providing literacy workshops to instructors, focusing on schools that need some extra help.
The best thing about the CLI’s programs? They actually work. An independent study recently found that kindergarten and second-grade students in CLI schools scored much higher on standardized reading tests than did students whose teachers didn’t get CLI training.
If you’d like to stick up for literacy best practices in schools, then fuel the Children’s Literacy Initiative’s work by buying a slammin’ graphic tee that will pay for equal access to education. Learn how below!
Q: Does every American child deserve equal access to education?
A: Heck yes!
But the truth is, not every child goes to a well-funded school. Unfortunately, this funding gap has an enormous impact on our children’s futures. When kids can’t read well, it’s much harder for them to graduate high school, go to college, or get jobs.
Clearly, parents and community members need to come together to help kids improve their literacy. Here’s what you can do:
Support Education by Shopping Our Charity T-Shirts for a Cause
Show kids that you care! Any time you purchase a Certantees graphic tee, you have the chance to donate to a literacy nonprofit at checkout. A total of 5% of the price of every shirt we sell is sent to an education nonprofit that supports children’s literacy.
Volunteer as a Classroom Aide
Many underfunded schools can’t afford classroom aides, who can really make a difference for students who are struggling. If you have a couple of hours per week to volunteer, then offer your time to a school in your area.
Design an Education for All T-Shirt
Are you a wizard with words? Come up with your own slogans for pro-literacy t-shirts. Not only are custom pro-literacy shirts ideal for selling at school fundraisers, but 5% of the price of every custom t-shirt you buy goes to an education-focused charity.
Read with the Kids in Your Life
Whether you’ve got kids of your own or a nontraditional family, commit to reading at a book a week with your kids. They’ll love the attention! If you don’t know any young families at the moment, then email a literacy nonprofit. They always need volunteer tutors.
