Share the gift of education!
When we read about the story of TOMS, we realized we needed to find a way to work giving into our business model.
TOMS ‘One for One™’campaign (where they donate a pair a shoes for every pair purchased) really captured our imagination…but how to make it work for us?
We weren’t selling shoes…we were selling e-courses + retreats! Then it struck us. We are providing education.
We strongly believe in the power of education. And it just so happens that Erin (aka: silent partner of Team Milky Way) was a board-member for a local non-profit organization that recently built a school in Guinea, West Africa.
BAM! There was our answer. Our very own One for One™ model!
Take a Class. Give a Class.
For every student who signs up for one of our classes, we will fund a month of schooling for a child. (Because many of the children you see in these photos wouldn’t be able to stay in school because of the family’s economic situation).
So, when take a class with us, you’re not only learning something new…you are helping one of these children learn something new too. And we think that’s pretty darn awesome!
We also support World Teacher Aid, Water.org, Virgin Unite (BVI Hurricane Support) and KIVA.org.
