In October 2017 we had our first donation. Uniforms were distributed to a group of school children in Jimenez, Mexico. Although we would have felt incredibly proud to be able to donate to a group of students on any corner of the globe, this donation in our hometown made the experience all the more special.
A school shirt may not seem like much for many of us, but a uniform is a requirement for many students across the globe (read here). We hope that this donation will help students feel the confidence that comes from a new piece of clothing. More importantly, we hope that it is one less barrier for them and their families to afford the cost of attending school. In the long-term, we can think of no better opportunity for anyone than the gift of education.
When we started Edie we knew that it had to be a purpose-driven company, and we are thankful that we have been able to remain committed to our mission to create products that empower our customers to give back.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Gloria & Victoria Lopez
