It almost sounds too good to be true: as much as 80 percent off current Athleta apparel, with 40 percent of sales benefitting the Malala Fund, a global organization founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and her father Ziauddin Yousafzai, which works to solve problems that stand in the way of a girl’s access to education.
The sale is going on now, at Schoola.com, a website built by a former teacher and school principal to support schools in need. When it launched in 2013, Schoola featured gently used clothing donated by parents. You'll still find a good selection of the sorts of apparel you'd find at consignment stores: Banana Republic, L.L. Bean, Ralph Lauren, and more for kids, juniors, and women. But now, big brands are getting involved as well. Athleta just donated thousands of pairs of running tights, sweatshirts and sweaters. Modcloth has done the same, and a Schoola spokeswoman says expect more well known labels to come on board.
To date, Schoola has supported more than 30,000 schools—raising more than $50,000 for some, which funds music, arts, play ground construction, and other important programs.
Definitely a site to bookmark!
