Budget cuts often mean schools curb programs like art class and phys ed that are essential for childhood development. So to combat increasingly lean curricula, former school principal Stacey Boyd launched SF-based Schoola—a way to instead lean your child's closet to raise extra cash for schools. The ecommerce platform facilitates upcycling to give clothing second life, or sells quality used clothing at below market prices. Forty percent of proceeds go directly back to the school that donated the threads. To get started, request a bag to fill here (don't worry, shipping is covered) and join the 3,000 nationwide schools already participating.
