We believe everyone has the right to a healthy start in life. That means more than a non-toxic home and a clean environment. It also means making sure all children receives the education they need to achieve their full potential.
Teach for America (TFA) shares that goal. Together we have created a new partnership dedicated to strengthening schools and cultivating minds in places where resources are scarce.
The need is urgent. Some 15 million American children live in poverty-- and only half will graduate high school. Yet an increasing body of evidence shows these children can achieve at the highest levels. TFA is working to make this happen by placing some of our country's brightest college graduates and young professionals into the schools where they're needed most. This fall, 9,300 TFA corps members are teaching from coast to coast and 24,000 TFA alumni are working across all sectors to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education.
You can help TFA provide an excellent education for kids in low-income communities every time you purchase Seventh Generation Liquid Laundry Detergent. During this back-to-school season, we've pledged to donate a percentage from every sale to TFA, with a goal of $10,000.
You can also help right now. Click here and Seventh Generation will donate $1 to Teach for America when you choose a Brighter Idea. It's a fun and easy way to support this vital cause. Plus, each time a friend you invite joins as well, you'll automatically be entered to win FREE Seventh Generation laundry products for a year.
Today, poverty limits educational opportunities for so many kids, but with some support from you and your friends, we can help change that forever.
