Charity of the Month: Youth On Their Own
Every month we choose a different charity and donate 10% of our overall profits to that charity. It's our way of giving back and letting our customers know that when they shop with us they are also doing something to help someone else.
We choose the charities in advance although sometimes the charity will change depending on social needs in the moment. For instance, the Ukraine invasion meant we moved things around and donated to help children affected by war for two months.
We check out these charities and ensure that they are doing what they say they are as well as have a good reputation for putting the funds they receive to good use instead of over paying a CEO.
This month our charity is a local charity. It is called Youth On Their Own (YOTO). I first heard about this charity when I was looking at teaching jobs in Tucson, Arizona. The charity helps youth without homes with school supplies and support. This, in turn, helps ensure that they are able to stay in school and be successful despite not currently having a home.
YOTO has a website and social media. If you would like to donate directly please do so! And remember that all purchases from us will be giving 10% of their profit to this charity.
You can find them online at www.yoto.org
